    Here's my new 2012 Giant TCX. It should be ~17 lbs when built with race wheels (DT Swiss RRC 46 tubulars). Ready to go tear it up in the Pro/1/2s!

    They definitely extend longer than the Cane Creek ones. I have Shimano road levers on my road bike and loved how the hoods felt. The Cane Creek ones felt very wide and bulky at the base and then taper to almost a point. Didn't like riding with those very much. The SRAM is much closer to the Shimano's. The shape has been way more comfortable! Hope this helps.

    Nice.

    Matching/cross-compatible everything, I assume.

    no. she rides a 52 and i ride a 54 so frames are not the same (differences on the mtb are taken up by different stems/seatposts).

    other than that they are the same... though it isn't necessarily required as we aren't planning to travel far from home during CX season. caveat being that might change if her power/speed comes around significantly.

    i don't think we will do CX nationals in any case because we have **no fricking clue** how to race in -1000 degree arctic conditions.

    What I currently have. In the near future, it might be a 29er with skinny tires...

    Any reasons in particular for the wheel "change?"
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Very stylish ride! How large of a tire can you run?

    Happy 'Cross Bike! by Andrew183, on Flickr

    This is my 2009 Kona Jake. I bought it to race, but I took that picture while I was having suspension trouble and my MTB wasn't ridable. It sees some singletrack time for fun and practice, I've already started doing 'cross workouts for this season on it, and I loan it to friends as a road bike from time to time.

    Mostly stock. Saddle is a recent acquisition, pedals are Time ATACs, the rear wheel is a $34 spoke and rim replacement on the original hub, and the front wheel has an old Shimano LX hub as a replacement for the crappy Formula hub, with original spokes and rim. One crank arm is a replacement, with the wrong finish. Chainwatcher added. And, of course, V-brake pads and holders.
    Andrw what size are you riding? I'm hung up between get a 49cm or a 52cm. My road bike is a medium Giant Defy Advanced 2. It has a 54.5cm top tube. The Kona 49 cm has a 53cm TT, the 52 cm has a 54.1cm TT. I'm thinking the 52cm would be a better fit?

    Mine's a 52. I think the idea of downsizing for 'cross is misguided, provided a cyclist's road bike actually fits him in the first place. I do run a smaller stem and less drop than I think I would on a road bike. But, only by one stem size and flipped up vs. flipped down.

    The one trap is that different seat tube angles can mess up a top tube comparison.

    On these cross bikes that are running 130mm BCD cranksets... what size chain rings are you running? I was thinking 44/38. Does this sound normal?

    Sorry for the OT. Some beautiful bikes in here.

    I'm currently running a 38t ring on my 130mm TruVativ BCD with an outer guard. I've run the 44/38 combo before and it's a great set-up IMO for doing anything and everything. I've dropped to the 1x10 as I'm only doing limited races this season that are slower/dirt oriented courses and trail rides which will be fine.

    Entered a cross race last winter and had a blast so I decided to put a bike together on the cheap. Some Craigslist and family deals. About $600.00 bucks later and I got this. Right now I use it to tow the kids trailer around. Will race it this winter.
    What frame is that? 130mm or 135mm rear spacing?

    Lemond Poprad 853. I love this bike, from singletrack to touring to local CX races, it is a "go anywhere, do anything" machine.

    Even has "my" pedals. You should ship it to me.

    My nicer bike is a Lemond Buenos Aires. '99 model - so an all steel frame, and carbon fork. Kickass bike.

    That's a beauty, I shopped hard for one but couldn't find my size when I was buying a new frame set last year.
