    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!!!!

    Haha not commuting, I'm an evil SUV driver. I have been getting some (fitness) rides in though on these stupidly cold wet days! Bar mitts and lots of wool help, but only a little.

    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.
