Hello to all ! I'm Giulio and I write from Italy .
Sorry for my English. I write with a translator !
And ' with great pleasure that I present my latest creation !
The search for a frame for cyclocross season started in August. After much research I could not find a means used him to do so in my case ' I started from scratch .
The choice of the frame fell on an Ibis Hakkalugi disc that comes from the USA. A big thank you to the guys at RBIKES.com that with a very short time I have done so have at home. They were very specific about everything and very helpful !
The members are mostly new except for some recovery.
I have tried hard to get a bike as light as possible and trying to keep costs down.
For hard I was immediately directed to the hydraulic then I purchased.
Another solution , which I have tested last year in the race, is the single crown . This year I opted for a front chainring 38 teeth Wolf Tooth ( for which I feel I have to thank the guys at Cycle RIE , even their very kind and extremely available ) .

Today the first round with the new toy . Ready away and I walk about ten kilometers on asphalt. What, you do bring your bike really well , the feeling is almost identical to that of using a racing bike , despite the tubular cyclocross knobby .
You enter in the dirt . Uphill pedaling very well and is pretty responsive, the single crown drives me up a bit ' everywhere and without too much trouble . Then comes the descent. The chain is tight and you feel it beat against the sheaths of the wagon , a synonym of the excellent work of the crown gear and Wolf Tooth type 2 .
We talk about the brakes? really astounding! Braking is idencica to that of a mountain bike , just the feeling that I was hoping to find on my new bike .
Nothing to do with any type of brake caltilever .
Now I just have divulged too much, here are the photos of the bike and a few shots of the first test (forgive the quality of the last photo in the movement, but were made with an iphone ... ) :
