    Post photos of your cyclocross bike converted to a daily commuter

    Please post photos of your cyclocross bike converted to a daily commuter - purely for inspiration.

    I am planning on doing the same with my Cannondale CX9 CAAD9. So far, I have added 700 x 35 Vittoria Randonneur Cross Pro City Tires and have ordered a pair of SKS P45 Chromoplastic Longboard Bicycle Fenders. I have also replaced the stem with a Hi-Rise ( Amazon.com : Eleven 81 AHD Road Stem 1 1/8X130mm 35D 31.8 : Bike Stems And Parts : Sports & Outdoors ) in order to bring the bars up a bit,

    Any other suggestions?

    Here's mine. Had it setup like this since 1997. The fenders are light and flexible enough that I have ridden a ton of miles on single track, fire roads, gravel, you name it. Oh, yeah, and it was main means of transport when I lived in SF.



    I tend to run 700x35's but had been running some Bontrager 38's this past year. Right now its wearing Nokian Hakkapeliitta tires. Which, I may get to actually put to use on Sunday.

    Since mine has always been both a commuter and weekend bomber, I never installed racks. You might consider racks and panniers if it is dedicated commuter.

    Enjoy the transformation.

    Well, one can argue if this is a proper cyclocross. However here is my Kinesis Tripster fitted with SKS longbords and Panaracer RibMo's.
    Campa Centaur all over and BB7 brakes. The bike is quite heavy but it serves well as a daily commuter.

    An 08 Cannondale X6 cyclocross. I've done so many mods to turn it into as close to my dream bike as possible. It was recently involved in a collision with a car, so I'll be replacing it soon.

    Dura Ace crankset 53/39
    Ultegra 9 spd shiffters
    9 speed Deore RD
    23mm Gatorskins
    Plastic Planet Bike fenders
    Shimano V brakes
