    Titus Bicycles US - Titus Bicycles Website 2011/12 is the US distributor. I got the frameset for $800, now on sale for $549 "for preorder". I'm guessing they are putting together a buy for their next order from Bev in Taiwan, the manufacturer, which means you won't see it for a while.

    Built as you see it is 19.25 lbs., but I could take a pound off if I went with the Stans Ravens I'm saving. Right now I'm using these heavy commuting tires (700x38 Serfas Vidas, 520 grams per), so i can ride asphalt to the dirt & gravel farm and logging roads that are 10 miles from my house.

    I just finished my BH RX1 (full 7900, Ksyrium SL Premiums, CX9s) and really couldn't be happier with the bike. Weighs a little less than 16.5lbs as shown and is very fast. I'm considering the On-One because I really like the idea of disc brakes especially at the $550 fr/fk price. The CX9 are fine of course but for mud and rain you can't beat discs.

    My first ever cross bike; S-Works Tricross budget build ~$750 and kinda heavy at 22 lbs. I really cheap'd out on the wheels and tires but i had to cut corners for now.

    Im not as confident in cross bike fit as in mtn bike fit, but i feel like this may be a tad big based on having to use an 80mm stem and short seat height... still a blast on the trails

    Actually size looks about right. I find a lot of people buy cyclocross bikes in a size too small.

    they said they had them in stock, minus the 56 which should be in in the next week or two. that being said i'm still waiting for mine to ship

    so i built a set of wheels in the meanwhile

    My '08 kona Jake the snake that I picked up new in 09. Been a great bike so far, bought it as a commuter and a road bike and it turned out to be a great bike for big road and dirt rides. New bar, brakes, on its third chain, second cassette and and too many tires to count.

    i'm going to give this cx racing thing a try this season and the bike will be getting some new wheels and tires... maybe a new fork, stem and seatpost as well.

    Love that Ritchey. Looks like Socal. Your 1st pic says it all: single, you spend all your money on bikes. The first thing that happens when you get married, that tap dries right up!

    New Conquest Pro!

    I am excited to pedal my new 2011 Conquest Pro all around the varied terrain in my neck of the woods! I put on about 6 miles tonight with my kids. I was able to get all Shimano 105 components and it rides awesome!

    I've heard there is. Havn't had time to head up there to do some recon though. Maybe tomorrow... I have a shake down ride of new cables/housings/tires I need to do anyways.

    Those of you who run carbon frames, how are they holding up? Are these frames heavier than regular road carbon frames? Anyone seen any broken ones or broken one yourself while competing/training?

    It's cyclocross. Don't race what you can't replace.

    Holds for road too.

    One of the courses in my area eats forks. I don't think it cares what the construction method is, and it'll do above or below the crown, though.

    Mine is holding up like a champ. I don't race, but I probably do exert a bit more abuse on my bike than the average person in here does based on the fact that I'm anywheres between 220 to 230 lbs. I'd guestimate I have over 270kms on my bike so far this year(once again guestimations - 20kms on road, 50 kms on singletrack/grassy field and at least 200kms - the very large majority of my riding - on gravel/rail trails) and I've only had two problems - a broken rear derailleur cable and valve extender leaks on my wheelset. Both were resolved rather quickly and cheaply.

    As for weight, I would say the cross style frames are built a tiny bit beefier than the road frames - I believe my cross fork has an aluminum steerer and carbon legs where the road bikes have a full carbon fork, so yes they are a bit heavier, but my bike w/ all accessories installed weighs 16 and half pounds, which is pretty sick (to me anyways) considering my mountain bike is a 25+ pound Cannondale Jekyll.

    My On One, with discs, seen on previous page, is stiff as a board, and overbuilt, IMO. Some don't like that, but I love it. The Dirty Disco is 1280 grams in the large size (according to another poster who had a scale). The fork is tapered, w a 1.5 bottom race, and absolutley no movement when braking. I heard some steel disc forks can be noodle-y: to make a steel fork stiff enough to resist those brake forces would cost a lot in weight, I think.

    Axman, a Chinese frame maker, makes a disc cross that weighs 1080 grams in a medium (acc to another poster on a diff thread). Those weights are def heavier than road, but necessary to resist the braking torque.

    If your not interested in disc, you can definitely get a lighter frame than that.

    As far as being durable, no problems so far. I ride gravel and dirt roads and rocks ping against the down tube all the time. It used to make me cringe, but now I pay it no mind.

    I did the same thing. The first couple times I actually wanted to stop and get off and look if there was any damage, but now it's like "pfft, whatever..."

    New to me Double Cross

    Picked this up off of Craigslist and it has been a ton of fun on the first 3 rides. It's been my first ownership experience with a bar end shifter and even 1x9 for that matter.Post your 'cross bike-double-cross-pic.jpg
    My other bike is a rigid SS Jabberwocky. I think I'm really going to enjoy using the Soma on less technical single track and packed gravel trails.

    Completed Cotic X

    Put a Lynskey steel fork on, dropped the stem height, put a 40t mrp chainring up front, and installed a Paul chainkeeper - and she is complete.

    I love this bike!

    WRCRS I like your choice

    I just picked my F65X up last week, logged a few road miles, cross practice and did a commute. Loving it so far as I am sure you are too.

    Beautiful. Did that little piece of hose that goes through the rear brake "bridge" slip down? It keeps the cable from wearing through the paint.

    Custom Frame Builders List by State/Country ( by William w/ The Paceline: Custom Frame Builders List by State/Country - The Paceline Forum )


    ------------------

    .... was just trying to be helpull - not realizing the length of the list so late at night when posted. I thought it was a great resource (obviously complied by William over a long period of time). I plan to check out some of the East Coast builders near Maryland. Mods can delete to just show link at top if preferred.

    Nice bike! Great color. I really enjoy this thread, you see a lot bikes we dont know here in europe.

    Are you riding with a single chainwheel in front? An is this a real bashguard? Any reason the cablehousing for the derailleur is that long?
    Regards,
    Michael

    Thanks! Yes, single 42t chainring, the chain-guard is just to keep the chain from falling off. Supposedly, the housing shouldn't bend at the barrel adjuster, but that piece is too long and floppy. I need to shorten it but it's Nokon housing so it's a little more involved than snipping the end off.

    Hi All,

    I thought I would share my FM089 Hongfu build.

    2013 newest design inside cable carbon cyclocross frame disc,View carbon cyclocross frame disc,OEM Product Details from Huizhou Hongfu Hardware Mould Processing Store on Alibaba.com

    Some points!

    - I speced the matt UD finish, I think it came out quite well
    - size is 54cm. I am 6'1" and it is perfect. 54cm centre to centre, 58cm centre to top. Head tube is big, so be carefull with your sizing if ordering
    - Internal routing is good, but a bit much considering it is exposed on the stays
    - Angles are quite agressive
    - Ordering was mixed, good communication, but 80 days leadtime ended up being more like 110 days! Production may be better now
    - Speced with cheap stuff, 105 shifters, ultegra r mech, cxc70 tp front, light-bicycles wheels (matt ud no braking surface). Cranks work great, ex BMC Campag Record with 44t innner as outer, got a great deal from kinetixproducts.com.

    All in all, I am happy, must change the bars as the reach is too much!

    Joe

    here's one of my Cross Check from my ride the other night...the tires are Marathon XR 700x40s, Salsa Woodchippers w/Brooks tape (it was supposed to match the saddle color, but no dice) & NAHBPC Brooks Swift saddle...the rest is stock.
