    Very cool bike. The paint scheme is actually a Merckx deal, he made the 7-11 frames. He also did Motorola's and Telekoms frames and they are styled the same in blue/red and pink/black.

    Awesome I'm going to try and race all the MFG races. Last weekend it was great at Issaquah, I didn't have to run any of the sand just rode by everyone.

    Thanks! I don't know much about the 7-11 history. All I know is that this builder also built the bike for Andy Hampsten, the one he rode at the Giro a long time ago.

    And at 7-11, people can still get their favorite Slurpees.

    It's more or a bastardized cross/ 96er I plan to use it as my city crevasse commuter and fire trail bike. it was a city mountain bike before with risers.

    Not the best photo, but here's my Jamis Nova Pro. I stripped it down to the frame last year, and added the following:

    SRAM Rival drivetrain
    AVID Ultimate brakes
    Alpha Q CX20 Fork
    Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels
    Challenge Grifo tires
    3T bar, stem, and post

    It's right at 19 pounds.

    It rides pretty good now, although I am researching custom steel and Ti options.

    Finally finished building my Yeti ARC-X. Full Sram Red (with exception of PC-1070 Cassette), ENVE cockpit and wheels. Seatpost is Ritchey until ENVE sends me new one at the end of the month (they're back ordered). Better pics coming shortly - this was on my camera phone. First ride will be at USGP New Belgium Cup tomorrow.

    Since the original build (top) I have upgraded to Veloce Ultra shift ergopowers, switched out the stock Deda ergo bend bars (25mm) for Deda's version of variable radius (31.8m) in a 46cm, got a Fulcrum big ring to replace the one I bent crashing, made a custom 12-27t cassette from a 12-25 and 2 Miche cogs, and switched from Schwalbe Marathon Crosses for Maine to a Marathon Racer/Plus combo for TN commuting.

    Thanks - I'm pretty pumped to ride it. Don't know the weight. It's light though. Will probably weigh it after the USGP races. Put new chainrings on as well today.

    My new Scattante



    I bought this frame from Performance for $270. Took the shifters, wheels, bar/stem, cranks, chain, cassette, and rear der. off my old Trek 5200. Added some Time pedals and cantilevers and a couple of tires that Blue Sky had for $12 each. Haven't weighed it, but I am guessing it is somewhere around 20 pounds.

    Got the bike completed last Thursday. Rode it 2 hours Thursday and then drove it to PA for Iron Cross.

    I wish they would come up with a better name than "Scattante." That kind of sounds like something the cat would hack up.

    PS - anybody want an old Trek 5200 frame cheap?

    My Yeti Race rig

    Yeti Arc-X, custom paint, mullett setup. I made the adaptors over the winter last year. Front fork is a 26MTB fork from Trigon, would rather have a straight blade fork, i am sure one will be out in the near future and i will swap it over.

    Dont mind the stem, it is a butchered unit that i was only using for sizing and such, it has a nice new clean Uno white stem on it now, bike weighs about 17.5 lbs in race trim

    Upgrades from a prior post. Added the Reynolds wheelset with Mud 2's, some xtr pedals, and a specialized toupe ti seat. Dropped about a pound. If I can go to a Force crank will drop another 1/2 lb. So far loving the new look.

    I'm just learning about Cyclocross so I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but I see that disc brakes are allowed in racing events so why are there only a few bikes here that have them? Aren't they (disc) better for the mud and muck?

    Yes, in my opinion, tons better than Canti's, last year was the first year UCI allowed them, companies are just starting to come out with adaptors and such for hydraulic discs, Some of the big companies Shimano, SRAM are working on hydro units in the brifters but probably wont be out till next year.

    Mechanicals seem to work well, but not a lot of frames come with disc tabs yet. Specialized, Stevens and the chinese are starting to come out with new bikes with MTB 135mm rear spacing to use 29er rims and such. I think in another year or two you will see more disc cross bikes than Canti. That being said, a lot of old school cross racers do not like the disc idea and the fact that realistically you cannot share wheels with your road bike is not helping, it increases the cost of a grass roots sport significantly.

    kinda the reason i went mullett, i only use the rear for trail braking, so i just need to scrub a little speed and the Canti achieves that. Front disc hauls my fat butt down really quick and modulates wonderfully, i can also pull the disc off the front and have a road wheel set, since i use standard road 130mm rear hubs.

    A little long but i hope i answered your question. And of course this is all my opinion, i happen to love the disc option for cross, but i am in the minority....for now.

    I think we'll see more and more 'cross bikes with disc brakes now that it's legal.

    It's not too hard to lock up the wheels on a 'cross bike. But I think I get better control with disc brakes, so if I could have some little 140mm mechanical disc brakes on my 'cross bike without throwing a whole bunch of money at it, I'd take them. It's nice that the wheels interchange with my road bike, but meh. Especially if I used rims with braking surfaces. I bet the spacing goes to 135mm, though - unless some big companies decide they really want the standard to stay 130, the availability of tons and tons of nice mountain bike hubs will probably make that decision.

    Nope.

    I know this Voodoo Nakisi has a flat bar attached but soon to be a drop bar. Super fun with the flat bar however weighing in at 22lbs with the pedals attached. this is a 58cm. Why isn't there more people riding these?

    Um... dealer network? My 'cross bike came as a complete. I was racing it a couple of days after purchase. I've chipped away at the build since then, but honestly, I can't imagine buying anything but completes when getting a bike for a new discipline. If I don't know how to choose parts, I may as well get a better deal.

    just finished the build this weekend. swooped the frame on ebay, and took the group and wheels of my road bike. didn't realize the frame had pearl-ish paint until i pulled it out of the box. still have the 50/34t up front, waiting until next paycheck to get the 46t.

    Hello everyone,
    Just bought my first cyclocross bike, a Cannondale CADX 105 size 51. It is a perfect size for me (my height is 5" 10") but I'm getting toe overlap when doing a tight turn. Is this normal on cyclocross bike? I had the bike properly fitted at my LBS.

    Thank you for any advice.

    ^^ Pulsarxxx yeah toe overlap on the smaller frames is normal, you just have to learn to ride around it which will become natural after a couple weeks. I'm 5'8" on a 51 Caadx as well, red one above, and could have probably ridden a 54. Setup with a 130 stem and 25 setback seatpost but I like the smaller frame. Post some pics man!

    Thank you for any advice.

    If the above is not a misprint then I believe you got ripped off. My OPINION is that they sold you a bicycle that is too small for you. I don't think the toe overlap is normal, Unless you're running a 29er tire ala monstercross.

    Got the bike completed last Thursday. Rode it 2 hours Thursday and then drove it to PA for Iron Cross.

    I wish they would come up with a better name than "Scattante." That kind of sounds like something the cat would hack up.

    PS - anybody want an old Trek 5200 frame cheap?

    Was it a postal bike? I would love to have another one!

    ^Damn, that has me thinking I should just pick up a frame and pull the parts off my current winter/rain road bike and build up a cx winter/rain bike instead. Nice job, cool photo!

    Yup. You would just have to buy brakes in addition to frameset.

    Nah, I'm 6'2'' and ride a 56 CAADX, I get a little toe overlap as well. I like a smaller frame with a long stem to keep the front wheel firmly planted in turns. I also run a crazy amount of drop for a cross bike. Bike probably fits him fine.

    Here's mine. It's "cheap", but it's fast! It's a Schwinn Avenue I got from a neighbor's yard sale. I put a stem riser, fixed stem, road bar, and toe clips on it. The bike was a lot of fun stock (Walmart hybrid, $240 new), but I like it better with the road/ CX set up. I like the Kenda Kourier tires a lot. The stock freewheel was pretty lame, so I put a MegaRange 34t on it. The bailout gear saves a lot of chain ring shifting.

    I guess it really is subjective! 51c just seems small to me & I'm the same height (5'10").

    Thank you for your advice Crosstown. I tried the next size (54cm), way too big for me. Couldn't figure out the Cadx geometry but size 51 is just right.

    Must have looked through this thread and the one on RBR 20 times trying to decide what CX bike to get. For the types of rides I have in mind, disc brakes were mandatory so I ended up getting the 2012 Specialized Crux Apex Comp. I wish they sold the higher-end Crux models with disc brakes.

    First ride yesterday and I know it's going to give me thousands of miles of fun! I don't often seek the mud and puddles but was doing that yesterday

    Parts Bin Special

    Old 90's GT Tequesta I saved from the landfill. Ditched the original fork and found a generic cr-mo rigid, converted it and the frame to 700c by grinding off the brake bosses and re-welding higher up. Original cranks running 42t chainring 1x3 (up/down/flat gears) with Rohloff chain guide and friction shifting of a Shimano 200 derailleur. I mix and match the sprockets for different courses. Ditched the flats this season for spd 520's. Total out-of-pocket costs <$30

    I got my cross check to where I can ride it. I'm not finished with the build, but I love this bike.
    I put in 2 hours of road time today give or take and this bike is plush!

    Built this one up for the race season, but now relegated for all-riding, this bike is alot of fun I must say. I can now do big loops with road, dirt, mountain, road, gravel, single track all in one ride.

    I've posted this in the 29er forum as well, I had hoped to do some low key 'Cross races with it. But, mainly ride dirt, gravel and pavement around town. Steel Rock Lobster, I had stripped down and powder coated. The other pic is my daughter and her single speed R/L she rode in a local 'Cross race here.

    Here is my 2012 Norco CCX3 with upgraded disc brakes (Avid BB7) from the factory, they were supposed to be spec'd with Promax brakes but had some problems so the first batch was built with the BB7's.

    That's a great upgrade on the brakes.

    How are you liking that beast? I work at a Trek shop and I'm looking at getting an Ion CX Pro frameset and building it up with a Force gruppo. I've been on the fence about what frame I want to get.

    Already made a few additions to my new Norco.

    Took off the dork disc, added a wireless speedo with cadence, a Pedros seat bag made from old tubes, and a WTB Rocket V seat, bottle cages, a mini pump. I also installed a set of my tried and true eggbeaters.









    If the weather works out I'll be able to take it for a ride this weekend!!!!

    Great fork - it made such a difference on Specialized Sirrus (turned into high speed commuter bike). Looks great, feels good, got one cheap (regret not buying 2 - for other bike).

    Don't lie to justify your shitty mudfest you call a race course.

    That was not fun and you know it.
