    After weeks of testing out different CX bikes, I decided to try CL for a nice find.

    I picked a Giant TCX1, got a nice deal on a well maintained bike. Took it out for its first ride yesterday, and obviously compared to my MTB, this thing is fast. Obviously not as fast a road bike but I had no issues passing the roadies on this particular loop.

    Bone stock with heavy pedals its 20.9lbs.

Is the lettering painted on or decals?
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    I build the Wheelset with my Bikemechanic, and he really like the rim.It was easy to build with the h+son.The wheelset is pretty stiff! Weigt of rim is about 470 gr.
    The decals are painted.

    recently upgraded my road bike gruppo from shimano 5600 105 (compact) to ultra 6800 and saved the parts including wheels and bar. Picked up this frame for $700 to put them all on and use as a trail bike for the converted railways around my home. Hope I got a good price on the frame, it is almost flawless but for some very minor nicks in the paint. 2013 Giant Defy Advanced SL even has internal cable routing which is nice.

    Should have it put together soon with cross tires and everything. Can't wait to ride it.

    Picked this up a couple months ago. 53cm Jake the Snake, mainly for gravel. Double wrapped bars, 33t small chainring (I'm old), 12-30 Ultegra cassette (I'm old), tubeless Clement USH tires (only one in the pic). Been having a ball with it so far. Getting ready for Dirty Kanza (100 miler) in a few weeks.

    Couldn't get my hands on the H+ son rims, so went with the HED belgiums instead. Looking more like a proper cross bike instead of a freakish 29er thing - for now

    My Canyon Inflite Al 8.0 with 41 mm Knards (appr. 43 mm on Mavic crossride rims).



    Yesterday I swapped the 46/36 chainrings to a 40T narrow/wide ring. With 11-32T cassette it gives a gear ratio ranging from 35 to 102 gear inches, which is enough for me:

    What rear derailleur are you using?

    Oh, it's a Shimano 105 derailleur (both cassette and der. are stock). Shimano states that a 11-28 cassette would be maximum for that derailleur, but mine works well with a 11-32 cassette.

    An MTB derailleur + 11-36 cassette could be an interesting option, but I do not know if they work with road shifters (mine are 105 too).

    Interested in how you find the seat stem.

    Eric
    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?

    Well, that's a Canyon VCLS 2.0 (a rebranded Ergon CF3?), which should dampen vibrations, kill buzz and so on. And it seems that it does so: for example, on large cobblestones the ride felt much smoother than on a bikes with a traditional seatpost. Then again those other bikes were a track bike w/28 mm tyres and a rigid mtb bike w/2.35" tyres, so both quite different with this one. Maybe I should test the Canyon with some other seatpost to see how much difference there is.

    Note though that with a straight seatpost (and 73,5 seat angle) the Ergon saddle is in it's extreme rear position. Although the saddle does not need to be further back, a setback post would have been better as I have a bad habit of breaking and bending saddle rails (although I'm not a heavyweight rider - 80 kg/≈176 lbs). At least carbon and titanium ones Fortunately these rails are Steel

    Sadly I had my Trek Wahoo hard tail stolen earlier this week so i needed a new ride. I just moved to South Carolina and there is not much for true single track in my area. But there are a lot of dirt roads so I opted to get a Cross bike. My brand new Trek Crossrip Elite.
