    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.

    Got this to get my feet wet but it will be used primarily as a commuter. This was after initial assembly so bars etc. still need to be adjusted.

    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)
