    Ooh forgot I kind of have one of these now. This was just set up to test that the eccentric hub would hold in the aluminum frame (it did )





    I'm gradually getting the bar position right (those woodchippers are funky) but I think its gonna be really fun. I sold the stans wheels so I can find a matching white front, and I am pulling a white industries crank off another bike as we speak. I have a 16/18 dos freewheel and 17t fixed cog ready to go on, hoping that paired with a 36t chainring will give me a fast enough gear for commuting and still leave me decent fixed / free options for trail riding
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    yeah somewhere around there...the gear calculator app on my phone is telling me ~75 gear inches. If I were to SS it again next year, I would certainly go a little spinnier than that. 10 miles in on the first climb I was really doubting it and wasn't even sure I would finish.

    I really, REALLY like them. I am more of a mountain biker than anything else, and thus, am very used and familiar with the feel of strong hydraulic brakes. And the Hylex's feel and power remind me a lot of really good MTB hydraulic brakes. Lots of power, but very easy to modulate so it's not either all on or all off. Lots of debate out there if you really need all that for a race course, but man they sure do inspire confidence...and I like to ride my cross bike and fast singletrack and the brakes sure do make that alot more fun. I'm a big fan...I currently have 'em set up 160 front, 140 rear. i was little worried about the 140 in rear being too small (mainly because on my MTB's I've also had 160's back there so that's my bias), but it's been no problem. Also, haven't needed a bleed or anything in the year or so since I've had them....rock solid.

    75, that's nuts. I'm going to run ~62gi (42x19 with 43mm tires) for a 70 mile, 10k ft race next year. Will be slow (and painful).

    This thread needs to stop--it's threatening the livelihood of my wallet!

    That masi looks great with the bullhorn bars. I think I'd like to do something similar.

    Re: Post your SSCX!

    Picked up the wheel I needed to finish my project today. Still not positive about the wood chippers but it sure looks purty

    Post your SSCX!-uploadfromtaptalk1406938937596.jpg

    If I decide I don't like em, I recently took some wcs bars off my other cross bike for some 26mm salsa dirt drops I got in a trade. They were a bit too flexy combined with the steel fork but bet they would work really well with the stiffness of that Ritchey fork
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Didn't know people were still using the term "murdered out," but very very nice IF.

    I'd really like to try those Schwalbe CX Pro's someday.

    thanks. the tires are Schwalbe Racing Ralphs actually... I incorrectly listed them as Rocket Rons. I ran Rockets last season on a different bike, great tire, but I'm looking forward to these Ralph's for cx, as its my favorite mtb tread for all round riding, racing. The Ralphs may shed mud a little better (but at the cost of less bite) we will see. They hook up great running tubeless with the Iron Cross wheels.

    The CX pros look interesting as well, I haven't tried them. but they are 80g more per tire than Ralphs....

    Oops, thought those were CX Pro's. Guess I didn't know RR's came in 33's. I'd really like to try those out as well.
