    joe90mccall.....what does your bike or frame weigh in at?
    Do those cable housings go through the frame..or just the cable?
    Looks like you have 160 rotors?
    Good looking build....be sure to seal those DuGast sidewalls!

    Didnt get to weight the frame/fork....probably around 1150/500. I'll weight the bike this weekend, feels sub 8kg.

    Of course I have aquaseal on the sidewalls ;-)

    I ordered it back in June, thinking I would have it in August.....didnt get it until Late September! Shipping was 5 days though!

    Thanks....do the cable housings go through the frame? Or do the end at the frame and just the cable itself go through?

    Thanks for the follow up.
    I really want a frame that can run 140 rear.
    This frame is plan B right now. The CDale SuperX carbon and the Fuji Altamira are plan A

    Hi,

    Wheels are tubs, 38mm with Novatec disc hubs with pillar spokes. Hubs are cheap, but they are race wheels so wont be hacked, so they should be ok. Rims are good, the well was quite deap, so I had to build it up by gluing narrow strip of cotton rim tape and then the tub. Overall, good value at $500. They are stiff and ride well.

    You can chat online with light bicycle-carbon frame,carbon rim,carbon wheel,carbon wheelset,carbon mountain bike,carbon road bike, here is the spec, they can make them for you.

    1pair 38mm wheelset tubular (UD, Matte, 28holes, no braking surface, Novatec D711/D712 red hubs, black Pillar 1420 spokes, red nipples)

    Specialized CruX Expert Carbon Disc (54cm), my new cross bike, just received it two days ago.

    The disc brakes are amazing when it's freezing cold outsides and canties would be frozen.

    Two kind of shitty images taken tonight. Will try and take some with decent camera in the brief daylight we get here at this time of year.

    Just picked up my new Cross rig. 2013 CAADX disc. Weighed in at 21.15lbs as it is now. Not too bad for a 61cm!<a href="http://s1197.beta.photobucket.com/user/Bsin80/library/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1197.photobucket.com/albums/aa432/Bsin80/IMAG0618.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

    Here's my CX bike. I originally had a Salsa La Cruz that was too small (Craigslist buy); switched the frame to a Vaya that felt was too sluggish and found a steal with Milwaukee Bikes-Waterford built. I have played around with various forks and am dialed in with the Spot carbon fork.

    Frame: Milwaukee Bikes True Temper OS tubing
    Fork: Spot brand carbon
    Wheels: Salsa Semi rims with Hope hubs built by Mike C. tires: Schwalbe Marathon 28c
    Drivetrain: Shimano 105
    Saddle: Brooks B17
    Stem: Nitto Lugged

    Here's my Scattante X340 le in Iowa. I bought it from performance bike the day before making the trip out to the Midwest. Mainly using it for gravel but will also race it next fall. It's decent considering I paid less than 500 bucks out the door. Stoked to have another CX bike. It's nice to mix it up between this and my karate monkey.

    Another shot of my cross bike today during a snow-melt ride. Trail was pretty sloppy, so it was back to the road after this photo!

    Are you using Rocket Ron tires tubeless? I'm asking for tubeless kits in other post and I saw your bike and I was asking myself.

    Great bike!

    Ritchey Break-away cross, with various Shimano and FSA. I have taken this around the world, and on everything from extended road rides to single track. On this ride in Montana I have 42mm knobbiest that clear easily in front but required some trimming of shoulder knobs in the rear.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Planet X Uncle John

    Hello all!

    Here is my fist CX build:









    The frame is Uncle John 2012, size M. I feel ideally myself on it with 115 mm stem and with 20 mm of seatpost setback. I'm 181 + 82 inseam (without shoes).

    The shifters are Campagnolo Veloce Ultra-shift 2010 (with indexed left shifting, 5 clicks) paired with the rear derailleur is Shimano RD-5700-A 10-speed Modell 2012 with the cassette is 9-speed Shimano Ultegra 12-27. Works perfectly well, very crisp and reliable shifting so far.

    The 3-crossed wheels were built by me from XT disc hubs, Sapim Race spokes and Mavid Open Pro rims.

    Also, with this bike I've encountered terrible fork chatter with the initial brake setup. I've empirically worked out my recipe:
    1. Raise the straddle cable higher than the fork crown.
    2. Cut the Kool-Stop Salmon mtb pads to the size of road pads (I'll test kool-stops thinline soon)
    3. Reverse toe-in for the front pads.
    This steps allowed me to minimize the fork chatter. Some tests with travel agents and alternative fork cable hanger will be done soon.

    Unfortunately, it had not been built before the season, but just after, so this bike is looking towards the road training sessions during summer, and CX racing during next autumn-winter season

    In addition, recently I tried to use Kool-Stop Thinline salmon brake pads, and tested them 2 times - in the forest and the next day on the road - with success without any cutting. No significant fork chatter, acceptable braking - well enough. Also it's worth to check the headset - should be tighten properly.

    Headset tighten properly, cheking it not once. Brakes Cane Creek SCX-5. Changed brake pad to more hard. Until new - tolerant, after 20-30 kilometers all started on a new.
    First there was the fork kinesis crosslite3, then I put the native UJ fork - the same result.
    remains to reverse toe-in for the front pads and try the other rims. Now there are cheap Rigida Sniper.

    It's not negative sloping I think it's the angle of the picture. The top tube is zero degree; no sloping either way. I don't have a side shot of my bike so I pulled this one of the net.

    bkranz, I'd like to do that some day, get a BAB cross and take it around the country, when I visit my daughter in Oregon. Did the 42s fit in the travel case? Did you have to deflate? (i like to run tubeless so deflating would be a drag)

    Last weekend's project was taking a spare set of 700c wheels and retrofitting them on my old 27" Schwinn Sports Tourer. So had to much with the brake calipers, dial in the RD to make the switch from a 6sp freewheel to a 10sp cassette, put on a new chain, etc. But I think it came out really nice and the Conti. Cyclocross Speed tires seem to live up to their name (they are fast). Nice 40th birthday present for the old bike:

    Almost ashamed to post in here, but this bike will serve me fine until I can get my hands on one of those swiss cross framesets.



    And a clean one:



    The muddy one was taken in the middle of a mixed gravel rail trail / singletrack ride in the aftermath of the flood in the background of the clean one. I've had it for a few years and use it for a bit of everything. Commuting (though that is going to be less frequent once I get my old mountain bike set up fixed), road riding (75 miles is the farthest I went on it so far, may do a century on it this year but usually I rent a proper road bike for that), singletrack, racing. Swapped out most of the drivetrain, the wheels, and got some TRP mini-V brakes. Rides like a dream.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Found a pic of the bike after P2A last year. Reminds me of how much I hate that race and makes me wonder why I signed up again.

    Hello pyze-guy!

    Could you please tell me, what fork do you use? Have you got chatter with it with cantis, or you've always been with Vs/mini-Vs?

    Its a Ritchey carbon wcs fork. It had horrible chatter with cantis and I cant mount a fork cable stop on it to eliminate it. I switched to mini v's for several reasons.
    IMO, cantis suck.
    Getting rid of the chatter.
    I use the bike for comutting and i take the kids to daycare in the trailer and wanted better stopping than the cantis provided.
    I take the bike on the mtb trails and wanted to be able to stop.

    I dont race cross often, and am willing to deal with mud issues when i do with the v's.

    think the thing in the brakes? I tried to plug Uncle John's carbon fork, tried aluminum kinesis crosslight 3, changing brake pads ... but all to no purpose.

    Fork chatter/shudder solution

    Little update to fork chatter/shudder question: I've tried to implement the solution described in this response - and voila! It works much better, than before. My illustrations of this solution:







    I'm not sure about the durability of such workaround - seems, that it's always good idea to have couple of plastic ties for longer ties with you! It would be great, if somebody offer the same solution for shimano brakes.

    Raido: Really? It will wear off your paint, catch mud like crazy, and it looks like crap. The real solution is mini Vs. Great braking no chatter ever.

    I've put a stripe of the electrical tape on the place, where the zip tie touches and rubs the headtube. Maybe aesthetically it's not the best right now, but it seems to work and could help people immediately.

    Here is how it kind of stands now, still working out a few other pieces. The fork is a Nashbar cross fork (Winwood) and will take a 47c Smart Sam without fenders, I can not get my "1.9" RK in that fork though. This is more for gravel then singletrack these days, and I just got the Cowbell 3 today (literally just finished taping it).

    Makeshift parts spec
    54cm Vassago Fisticuff
    Hope Pro 2 hubs on Jalco X320 rims (poo rims)
    Sram Apex Compact 52/34
    Shimano XT Cassette 11-32
    Shimano XTR m960 RD
    Shimano LX fd
    Time ATAC XS/Alums
    King cages
    CC S3 Headset
    Tiagra 9 speed shifters
    Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross fork
    Salsa Skewers
    Salsa Cowbell 3 bar
    Panaracer Pasela 35c
    Avid BB7_Roads

    The saddle will be replaced, am looking for a Brooks B17 probably in the mandarin color hopefully.

    Got a lot of gravel to cover this year and this had taken most of it on the Pasela's no less. Am looking for a nice pair of clinchers for the cross season.

    My Airborne Delta CX in Myakka State Park in Florida. Good place to ride a cross bike. There is virtually no elevation change but lots of varied terrain. The only miserable part is the areas with deep sugar sand which is almost unrideable with thin tires.

    Haven't posted in here yet...

    Civilian Vive Le Roi. Few upgrades: Salsa cowbell 2 bars, x7 rear der to replace the stock one I destroyed, spare tubeless ready wheelset from a Paragon I parted out, 700x35 SB8 rear and 700x40 Happy Medium front (both setup tubeless), Selle Anatomica saddle

    Bought it because there were some pretty good gravel, dirt, and/or sand roads and trails within riding distance from my house. Probably not going to do any cx racing.

    From TOSRV South dirt ride this weekend:

    Just finished yesterday. In road mode for the summer since it's my only roadie now. Red crank set for a single ring with a BBG bashguard (blue of course) waiting for it's time to shine this fall. Still needs some fitment adjustments so things kinda look odd.

    I have endless miles of access to fire roads, which are not overly thrilling on a MTB, but make for excellent mixed terrain adventures. I found the geometry of old MTB's suited this style very well. This is my MkII of a 26" cross bike. 1997 Marin Bear Valley SE, updated with carbon fork and front disc brake. Was hoping it would be lighter than its 25lbs as I do have to Hike a bike or carry it at times. I an running Schwalbe CXPro's on like them a lot.

    ^^ That Marin is cool! I used to have a '96 Eldridge Grade till some fawker stole it in '05. Those Marins are great bikes, I really miss it. I'd probably have done something similar if I still had it. I miss steel bikes.

    Raleigh Furley SS steel cross

    This is my steel single speed cross bike, currently for commuting, alternating between this and my geared roadie. When I want to spin like mad, with steel comfort and mixed off road, I would ride the Furley. Would love to test it on some trails, but the mountain bike is consuming most of my riding time off road at the moment.

    New to the forums, hi there.

    Howdy everyone, new to the forums and wanted to share my ride here, my custom spec'd Kona Rove. First cx/gravel grinder bike I've ever owned (last bike was a 2000 Rocky Mountain Blizzard, great bike too) and it has exceeded my expectations. This is her at Shrine Pass near Vail right before the downhill into Red Cliff. Little bit of mud and snow slogging at this elevation (around 11,000ft) but I'm not complaining because it was pretty fun. Nice views of Holy Cross on the way down too. Perfect day!Post your 'cross bike-rove-shrine-pass.jpg

    I haven't weighed it yet, and it definitely isn't a lightweight bike, but I love it. Mine isn't a stock Rove, but I'm sure it rides pretty much the same. The way I have it set up might have added to the weight, but I'm 6'4" and 250 so it doesn't really matter to me very much since 1) I'm not racing it and 2) I was willing to trade a bit of weight for indestructibility, i.e., Chris King hubs and BB, Velocity Blunt 29er rims, Thomson seatpost, big ol' 700x40 Clement MSO tires (LOVE these tires). The bike is really responsive, yet comfortable on long rides. Taking a bit of getting used to not having shocks anymore, but I'm adapting just fine and I ride a lot more graded dirt roads than I do singletrack anyways.

    Where do you ride in FL? I'm from FL and I miss it a lot. A lot of the riding here at the top of the Rockies is straight up and straight down, not a lot of level and steady paced like back home, but it's still pretty fun.

    cool, thanks for the info. I've been looking at the rove for shellrock roads (our version of gravel), commuting, and light singletrack but i'm a little worried about the weight. I'd like to get something that i could use in a CX race but i'm not sure i want to sacrifice functionality for it.

    I'm down near west palm so the rove would be my choice for my next ride around lake Okeechobee.

    There's a titanium version of the Rove as you probably know, so if you have a big budget that would solve the weight problem.

    There's a fun looking race down in SW Fl I'd like to do sometime called Piggy's Revenge: Gravel Grinder News: Piggy's Revenge 2013

    You bet. They were pretty stoked about it at my LBS. I followed their advice and I'm finding it perfect for my particular style of riding.

    17 lbs and a absolute blast to ride and tubeless is the way!!
    Finally got the finishing touch for my beast!

    TRP HYD hydraulic brake set, got them dialed in and did about 50 miles of dirt/road/singletrack yesterday and a quick 20 mile commute into work....holy crap these are the jam!

    Have not hit the "fade" zone yet but for local singletrack trails they are such a relief. One finger braking with road levers is amazing!!!

    My apologies for the poser shots, I rarely bring a camera with me to singletrack adventures; next time I'll try!

    Have not hit the "fade" zone yet but for local singletrack trails they are such a relief. One finger braking with road levers is amazing!!!
    Why is the reservoir down there?? Is it faux hydro/psuedo hydro system with cable all the way down to the caliper?
    That would kinda make no sense at all. At least not to me. In about a week or so I'm getting to try out my bb7 roads and I'm exited to see if there is any difference between those and hydros.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
