    I just picked up a used La Cruz for a great deal and am loving it as well. Stock 105 build from 2008 maybe? I'll have to grab some pics.

    My 2008 frame, fork, headset, and brakes are for sale.

    Size is a 51. $150 plus shipping.

    Just need it gone. It pains me to see it sitting unused. If I hadn't started making my own frames I would still be riding it. Instead I built a clone out of S3 and Stainless tubing.

    My lime green 97 is for sale too. Frame modified by Chris Kelly for disc tabs, Fork (Chris Kelly fork), headset, Salsa seat post, salsa bell laps, stem, BB7's, UN73 BB with specialized cranks. This frame has tons of clearance, a true monster CX bike. Some paint chipping in spots, but structurally sound. $200 plus shipping

    Love my La Cruz, but anyone want to trade frames? I have a 57 but would love a 59 even more.
    My other bike is a /7.

    Annual thread bump. Tore the commuter down after I decided my horrible commute was no longer worth it. I probably lost 20lbs off the bike after the wheels, tires, fenders, racks, bags, kick stand, etc. lol

    Pretty extensive overhaul. Had to replace the bottom bracket finally. I've ridden 99% flat land since I got the bike, but last month hit some hills. It felt like someone had thrown a handful of sand in there

    Also got the Ritchey disc cross fork which dropped another pound and am running Specialized Roubaix tubeless on fleabay score WTB i19's on DT 350 hubs. The tires are 23/25 (whatever that means) but I'm running them at ~90psi. They are super cushy. Almost as plush as my old 32c's. Ran them on some super crappy roads and they were awesome.

    Still going strong after 7 years. Requisite "in front of the garage" shots.

    ryball- Nice! What is the tire clearance on that Ritchey fork? Notice any difference, other than the weight loss?

    I test fit my old Bontrager 44c's on there just for S&G's and there is breath of clearance. I wouldn't dare go over 42c and probably would stick below 40c to be comfortable. I would probably say that the road buzz is less with the new fork, but not like night and day. The weight is night and day, I can tell you that. hahahaha.

    I'm also contemplating going 1x because I NEVER get into the big ring.
