    For cx racing and paved commuting, I run 39/17 and it feels just right out here in Central New York. Just dropped to 36/17 to do some longer gravel road rides, 36/18 might be ideal.

    New Zona

    It's all stock except gearing. Went 39-18. Can't wait to get it real dirty.

    Nice AC!!! What size is that? I wanted one but they made the smallest in a 49 and I need a 46, so I just(like 2 hours ago!) ordered a purple Nature Boy reg in a 46. Can't wait!!!
    Should be here Friday & get built up that day.

    Post your SSCX!

    I may have posted this last year but it has some updates so once again here is my Felt F1X SSCX.

    Upgrades from last year are mainly the brakes. I went from BB7's to TRP's new single speed specific (feel funny saying that about brakes) Hylex hydraulics 160 front 140 rear. The Hylex's are such a vast improvement over the BB7's it's ridiculous. The feel and modulation remind me of my XT's on my MTB. Only issue i have is that the brake hoods are longer than what i had and now i need either a more compact bar (current bars are aluminum Salsa Bell Laps) or a slightly shorter stem.

    Also new are the cranks. Used a set of 2012 SRAM Red Exograms. Had to get a little creative with spacer bolts for the hidden 5th arm to make it single ring compatible but it works

    In about 2 weeks i'll have another upgrade...a set of Psimet carbon tubular wheels with King disc hubs. Will repost that when they are here and ready.

    Weight as shown and ready to ride with basic eggbeater pedals, bottle cage, and Barfly mount is 15.75 lbs

    I'm using a BEER Components EBB for BB30 for the SS conversion. Shown here with 42x17 gearing which is what I run more often than not in races.

    EDIT: also oh and one note. That 3T Luteus fork is freaking amazing. Really stiff and GOBS of clearance. I actually was running a 1.9 MTB tire on the front for awhile. It was a Specialized S-Works Renegade 1.9. It fits right on in there. With a fat tire like that on the front, it really converts this bike into a killer singletrack slayer.

    Nice Tyrone. How much weight do you think you'll drop with the carbon tubulars? Those hoods do look abnormally long, but I think the extra grip surface would work well for stand and mash climbs.

    I thought I posted my AC on here when I picked it up on Friday but I guess I didn't.
    All City Nature Boy 46cm, 42/19 SS. Pretty much stock at this point, although I did put my classy "lap bell" on it(not in picture).

    Post your SSCX!-image.jpg

    I am embarrassed to say that 5 days into ownership, I have all of 6ish miles on it so far. Thank goodness I have a CX race tomorrow that will right that cosmic wrong! Crazy week of running & road bike races. So glad October is finally here!

    You know good question on the weight difference between the current wheels and the carbon tubulars. The current Stan's Race Golds are extremely light...at least for a 29'er MTB wheelset, I think Stan's lists them at 1390 grams. And I'm not sure how much my tubular set is going to weigh. I think the tubulars are going to be a little heavier...they'll be a custom set of Psimet 38W Carbon's (Custom Cyclocross Wheels - Custom Bicycle Wheelsets by PSIMET). Psimet has stock set of these with Alchemy hubs that is listed at 1247 grams, but because I am running discs I had to go with a custom setup. I went with Chris King disc hubs....R45 road disc in the rear, and on the front, I went with one of their MTB disc hubs instead of an R45. Mainly because when I ordered them, there was a small chance I would be racing one of the new Giant TCX's disc frames with the thru-axle fork, and I wanted a front hub that could be convertible between standard QR and 15mm thru axle, and the R45's, being a road hub, didn't offer that.

    So all that being said, I think with the King hubs, the Psimet tubulars will be a bit heavier...we'll see. I'm not getting them with weight as the main consideration though....I've wanted the ride of tubulars for awhile now, and those Race Gold rims are flexy as hell (they have a 170 lb weight limit which is exactly where I'm at). So I'm looking forward to the Psimet's for a bump in performance from tubulars and stiffness, weight was the 3rd consideration for them I guess.

    Oh and yeah, the extra grip surface on the Hylex hoods do work well for the stand mash climbs. Just the other day, I took off the Salsa Bell Laps (which are now for sale if anyone is interested!) that are in the photo and replaced them with some shorter reach alu Zipp Service Course's...and now my position is back to where it was. So happy about that.

    Custom Wilco SSCX (DSCX?)

    Just took delivery today. It's a custom disc steel frame with enough nice bits and bobs to keep the weight down around 18lbs. Running the WI dingle speed cranks 35/38 in the front and 13/15 tooth cogs in the back. 35/15 is too tall for off road, so I am going to change it to a 16T. The rear adjustable drop outs are the bees knees!

    updated pic with Psimet 38W tubulars laced to King disc hubs (R45 disc rear & Mtn disc front in case I ever need 'em on a thru-axle fork). Challenge Fango tubulars. Will probably de-sticker those rims a bit....

    Just finished building this up today. Budget SSCX action here. I've usually ride road and mountain but I wanted to give cross a shot without breaking the bank so this is what I went with.



    Motobecane Fantom Cross Uno
    FSA Omega Compact Bars
    Cane Creek SCR-5c Levers
    Michelin Mud 2's
    Crank Brother Candys
    Fizik Aliante Saddle

    It's heavy at 21.4 pounds, but considering that I am only into this thing for about $450, I am very happy with it.

    Thanks! Yup, BEER Components EBB. Very happy with it. Not cheap, but so far it's seen the High Cascades 100 on my flash, and now CX on my XTJ with no complaints.

    That's good to know. I was thinking about buying an aluminum cannondale disc bike and adding a BEER EBB.

    Not exactly a CX but it is SS and it has CX tires so I guess it counts.

    Early '80s Sho-Gun roadie with 700x30 Schwalbe CX Comp. Gearing is 38x16. This bike is FUN!

    Can I get some thoughts on brake levers? I have a Felt with the Tektro levers, but I dont like the hood shape and the lever feel. I have SRAM Force on my geared bike and I thought about SRAM levers, but they are terribly expensive.

    I like it boofman. Everyone in the 29er forums are clamoring for slack frame angles, so I think yours is a trendsetter . If you like it and enjoy riding it, that is all that matters.

    thanks bud! yeah, I enjoy riding it..I like my road runs but roadies are too flimsy for me imo as there are times I ride a little bit of trail with my MTB friends..but primary purpose is pavement, hence 48/18 gearing is the one I went with..

    Thanks stremf! Yes, if there's one thing this bike has it would be soul..I mean this would really be blood, sweat, tears with gears!

    Looks like frankenstein's monster tho, with mini-v at the back and canti up front as I can't find any LBS that got hangers for the rear and frame hasn't got one..rims are double walls that screach like hell under heavy breaking..lol

    I use a hanger from Surly that attaches to the seatpost clamp. Works well. I'm sure you can find one similar where you're at.

    exactly what I was looking for..however. nobody ever uses Cantis where I'm from so LBS don't bother having them in stock..looks like I'm going to have one fabricated for me..but thanks for the idea!
