    Old Steed

    Just want to share...
    Slowly converted/converting an old touring bike into a CX/Commuter/Touring bike. Needs some more work on this steed.

    Raleigh RXC Disc

    Here's the latest incarnation of my Raleigh RXC Disc. Decided to run Easton EC90 XC 29er tubeless with Clement LAS and a Stan's ZTR Iron Cross Team with Clement PDX. The Clement LAS is for the road/pavement and the Clement PDX is for CX. Running 60 PSI on the LAS and 27-30 (depending) on the PDX. Weight is not crazy, but as light as my road rig at 16 Lbs.

    Finished this build recently using a lot of parts from my old roadbike and an eBay frame/fork. Picture from the second ride on it. Still fine tuning it. Brakes need some adjusting. After I get comfortable on it I'll eliminate some headset spacers. Handles pretty well on the dirt. Frame looks big for me but I'm all upper body with short legs. If I went a size smaller the top tube length is too short. If anything I'd like it a little longer. Oh, how I wish my legs were a couple inches longer.

    Shimano 600 STI levers
    Shimano 600 cranks 39t and BBG bash guard

    That's not my bike if you are referring to the pics in above post. But if you are asking about my surly, my cross check was purchased as a used frame set off of craigslist with the steering tube cut already and my moonlander steering tube is uncut. Haha!

    It's been raining here for the best part of a week so instead of my Karate Monkey, I decided to take the CX bike out for some mud.

    Paring down some bikes and I've decided to ride a Gravel/Cylcocross/Road bike for the 2014 season. 2014 Specialized Crux Pro Cantilever frame - moved some of the SRAM Rival Compact components over from my 2012 Roubaix and upgraded to a SRAM S950 (Force) Carbon cranks, CG-R Seatpost, Avid Shorty Ultimates, and two wheelsets: Specialized Roval for the road and Fulcrum CX 5 for GravelCross. Very happy with the frame (stiffer and lighter than the Roubaix Elite - 10R vs. 8R carbon) and the bike came back with a 17lb 1oz build weight w/out pedals - Size 58 frame.

    I've only done a few road rides thus far, but am liking the compliance of the new seatpost.

    You generally don't need to worry about that, especially if your pads are toed, as the leading edge of the pad cleans the rim as the brakes engage.

    I usually don't like the color scheme on those Cruxes, but that looks nice. Maybe it's the background. Nice photography.

    Of course, it would look better covered in mud.

    I wipe down my rims after most races, and once in a while I'll use a Dremel tool to clear the top layer of crud off of my brake pads, but mostly it's just accepting that CX means extra wear and tear.

    Yes they are. I had the shop put them on before I even got it home. They work great. One thing to note is that at least on the smallest frame size you can only put a 140mm rotor in the rear.

    You can see them a little better in this pic.

    I've heard that before. I've got 160's in the back and 180's on the front of my 2013 Jake (53cm).



    I've had some trouble with my Hy/Rd's, but a lot of that, I think, is because I got them very soon after they were released and before some of the issues were resolved (like redesigned gaskets). I'm optimistic that I've got everything straightened out now. In any event, there's no way I'd go back to even the BB7's I used to have. I love the Hy/Rd's.

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose of hydros when you have a wire going all the way back there? The hope system makes more sense to me at least.

    in my opinion it does. i've gone from hopes on my flat bar commuter to BB7 S Road's on my disc CX and i miss that hydro feel. waiting to see what other options come out soon, but will likely end up with the hope V-Twins like originally planned.

    I'm also running bb7 roads and I'm really satisfied with mine. I use cane creek short reach levers, slx discs and the best jagwire cables.

    Using compressionless brake cable housing minimizes the loss caused by the cables. Having hydraulics at the caliper gives you self-adjusting pad movement (and both pads moving unlike most mechanicals).

    I don't know how they compare to other drop-bar hydraulic systems, but the Hy/Rds are significantly better than the road version of the BB7's in my experience.

    Think I'm gonna need to move the sliders back a bit before taking it out, the tires are really tight.

    After weeks of testing out different CX bikes, I decided to try CL for a nice find.

    I picked a Giant TCX1, got a nice deal on a well maintained bike. Took it out for its first ride yesterday, and obviously compared to my MTB, this thing is fast. Obviously not as fast a road bike but I had no issues passing the roadies on this particular loop.

    Bone stock with heavy pedals its 20.9lbs.

    I build the Wheelset with my Bikemechanic, and he really like the rim.It was easy to build with the h+son.The wheelset is pretty stiff! Weigt of rim is about 470 gr.
    The decals are painted.

    recently upgraded my road bike gruppo from shimano 5600 105 (compact) to ultra 6800 and saved the parts including wheels and bar. Picked up this frame for $700 to put them all on and use as a trail bike for the converted railways around my home. Hope I got a good price on the frame, it is almost flawless but for some very minor nicks in the paint. 2013 Giant Defy Advanced SL even has internal cable routing which is nice.

    Should have it put together soon with cross tires and everything. Can't wait to ride it.

    Picked this up a couple months ago. 53cm Jake the Snake, mainly for gravel. Double wrapped bars, 33t small chainring (I'm old), 12-30 Ultegra cassette (I'm old), tubeless Clement USH tires (only one in the pic). Been having a ball with it so far. Getting ready for Dirty Kanza (100 miler) in a few weeks.

    DB RCX Carbon 1x9, 18.5lb. Sort of a parts drawer build with A23s, carbon cranks, SLX hydros, an old Truvativ mtb stem.
    Its a lot of fun.

    Yes, that's a long cage XT RD, it was in the parts drawer..

    Couldn't get my hands on the H+ son rims, so went with the HED belgiums instead. Looking more like a proper cross bike instead of a freakish 29er thing - for now

    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    My Canyon Inflite Al 8.0 with 41 mm Knards (appr. 43 mm on Mavic crossride rims).



    Yesterday I swapped the 46/36 chainrings to a 40T narrow/wide ring. With 11-32T cassette it gives a gear ratio ranging from 35 to 102 gear inches, which is enough for me:

    What rear derailleur are you using?

    Oh, it's a Shimano 105 derailleur (both cassette and der. are stock). Shimano states that a 11-28 cassette would be maximum for that derailleur, but mine works well with a 11-32 cassette.

    An MTB derailleur + 11-36 cassette could be an interesting option, but I do not know if they work with road shifters (mine are 105 too).

    Interested in how you find the seat stem.

    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?

    Well, that's a Canyon VCLS 2.0 (a rebranded Ergon CF3?), which should dampen vibrations, kill buzz and so on. And it seems that it does so: for example, on large cobblestones the ride felt much smoother than on a bikes with a traditional seatpost. Then again those other bikes were a track bike w/28 mm tyres and a rigid mtb bike w/2.35" tyres, so both quite different with this one. Maybe I should test the Canyon with some other seatpost to see how much difference there is.

    Note though that with a straight seatpost (and 73,5° seat angle) the Ergon saddle is in it's extreme rear position. Although the saddle does not need to be further back, a setback post would have been better as I have a bad habit of breaking and bending saddle rails (although I'm not a heavyweight rider - 80 kg/≈176 lbs). At least carbon and titanium ones Fortunately these rails are Steel

    Sadly I had my Trek Wahoo hard tail stolen earlier this week so i needed a new ride. I just moved to South Carolina and there is not much for true single track in my area. But there are a lot of dirt roads so I opted to get a Cross bike. My brand new Trek Crossrip Elite.

    Built this thing a couple of weeks ago for racing this season; based on the Dengfu FM059, it's a 1x11 hybrid CX1/Di2 with discs and tubeless (at least for my intermediate/primary tires.)



    Complete build Imgur album: Goodbye Reddit Cross Build - Imgur

    Got to race it two weeks ago on a 140km point-to-point gravel/cross race. It was spectacular, even after 5 hours in the saddle.

    First post here. Here is my newly built cross bike. I have done a couple of mtb races and I am going to do some cross races in the Chicago Cyclocross Cup to give cross racing a try.

    It is a KHS CX200. Ebay find, frame and fork for $140 on ebay. Had it stripped and powdercoated for $50 and re-stickered it. Had a left over wheelset, stem and bars. Threw another $360 at it and came in at $567 for the build.

    I haven't weighed it, I usually don't - but I'd ballpark it at about 17lbs; it's competitively light when I compare it to my slightly-sub-16lbs carbon road-bike and it feels like a good 5lbs lighter than my 09' JTS (which rolls around 22-24lbs depending on the setup).

    I often worried about what knowing the actual (down to the gram) weights will do my obsessive little mind, so I don't have a scale (other than holding my bike while on a human-scale).

    I'd be interested in eventually getting carbon bars (for further, if minute, shock absorption) and a lighter seat (in part because I'm not an Arione fan - I need a slightly wider saddle) but I'm tapped out at the moment.

    Yeti Arc-X

    I spotted this frame on Ebay the other day and had to get it. It's in great shape, previous owner apparently used it as a commuter but looks like it wasn't ridden much. Finished building it up over the weekend and took it for a 40mi gravel shake-down cruise yesterday. It's a nice ride, relatively quick steering but not too twitchy. Will use it for some couch-potato level racing this season and gravel / road riding.

    This makes 4 bikes for me but by far the TCX is my favorite given the riding I do on the trails here, my only regret is not putting a better group on it. Putting the old shimano 105 keeps the weight up. I'm seriously thinking next spring I'll put on either the sram red which it originally came with or possibly ultegra, or even the latest 105 which is still lighter than what I have. It would be nice to get rid of the cables up front on the shifters. Then maybe a lighter set of rims. If I could improve one thing about the frame though it would be second set of bottle cage mounts. I typically do long rides on this one and one bottle doesn't cut it.

    I have the SRAM Force on mine and actually really like it. I've usually had 105's but very impressed. My new wheel set will come next week and I changed it over to a 1x and love it!!

    Did you buy it new with SRAM Force or did you swap it out or build it up from the frame? Is it the same 2013 as mine? Regardless, they are great bikes for sure.

    Mine is a 2014 and it came with the SRAM Force components. Yes they are! Didn't think I'd like it as much as I do. But very happy I took the leap and bought it.

    05 C-dale disc cross. The reg stuff.. Thomson Masterpiece, FSA stem, Ritchey Pro bars, Truvativ isis cranks, XT 11-32, XTR 9sp RD, 105 shifters, Avids(swapped to a 140mm rotor so I can swap wheels with my mtbs), Open Pro rimmed oem wheels, Velo oem saddle off my Focus 29r. Kinda heavy at a tic over 21lbs(I was wrong in the Crossbike Weight thread. need to edit that).

    When I got this bike, disc were rare. Seems like disc bikes are everywhere now.

    Been a good bike. I live here in the Smoky mtns, where we have seemingly-endless dirt/gravel both fire-service and state roads. Or many paved roads deadend into dirt. But can carry on over to the other side of the mtn, turning back to pavement. For this duty, its way better then either a road or mtb. The disc help with our long, sometimes steep..descents.

    Brand new cyclocrosser here - I'd been thinking about a road bike or a cross bike for a while to do longer rides around bay area and tahoe. Now I am rehabing a broken clavicle and figured it was time, so I can get some smooth pavement time and mix in some dirt as my arm gets stronger. I did some light dirt today, boy I forgot what a rigid fork feels like.

    I got a 2014 Felt F5X stock on sale, this is my first drop-bar bike. I may swap to slicks for winter and use it as a road bike.

    My hoss, tragically ill-equipped for a mud bath today. Fuji 1.1 2013 with a 1x10 Force/X9 drivetrain. Spesh Tracer in front, Trigger in rear, both excellent tires on hardpack or dry grass. Not so much on anything remotely Belgian.

    Just purchased this 2015 Cannondale SuperX SRAM Rival Disc today. Wow what a difficult bike to find. Several dealers in Phoenix, AZ area had none...out 'til end of March 2015 for this model the dealers told me.

    First ride is tomorrow, hopefully. Zero experience with cyclocross bikes, other than a ride last spring on a Crux, and was blown away by what a 20 lb carbon frame bike feels like!

    This one is a 54cm, and weighs (according to bathroom scale) exactly 20 lbs as pictured. Was hoping for a bit less, but it'll work.

    Decided the SRAM crank looked too chunky next to the slender frame, and I had an ENO crank lying around so I got some new chainrings and here we are



    Bars are new (to me) also but not sure how I feel about those yet.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    First ride photo. Cages will be changed to match, bars need to be narrower and dropped but I enjoyed the ride. Can't wait to get some miles on her!

    here's my two...

    2014 Norco Threshold A3....
    upgraded with Sram Force, and Kinesis Crosslight CX's.



    and just recently purchased a 2014 Giant TCX Advanced 1 frame set.
    built up with Sram Red, TRP Spyres, 3T cockpit... carbon wheels and a few other little detals are on the way... cant wait.



    both are great fun. the Threshold is more of a commuter and a backup CX.

    thanks.
    the Norco has an old 38t ring in that pic, but is now a 40t narrow wide ring.
    the TCX has a 44t narrow wide ring.

    Looks like a nice trail for a cross bike!

    Did you build the bench behind your wife's Raleigh? It looks like a fine bench. I am about to build my bench but I can assure you it won't rate against yours!

    After over 10 years of service I guess I should post up my Jake the Snake. Not much original left on the bike, crank arms, front shifter and headset, though that needs to be replaced. This is my do it all bike, cross racing, gravel riding, rainy day road bike, and winter training miles with studded tires.

    New this year for cross racing season #11 on the old girl are the Raceface NW chainring in 40 and the Challenge Grifo's. I love the NW single ring, I always raced in my 39t, never using my 48 so this simplification saved me 300g. Dropped the chain once in a practice lap crash, other than that it's been solid. The 300tpi Grifo's are very nice, at 30psi with latex tubes they are VERY supple. They roll fast and grip well, only downside is that they are 100g heavier than the Rocket Rons they replaced.

    I love this bike, hope it lasts me at least another 10 years!

    Just finished building my Traitor Crusade. Leftover MTB wheels, derailleur, saddle, stem, pedals, and seatpost kept the cost down a bit. Right on 22lbs at present with pedals. China carbon fork is on the way and will hopefully drop off a pound or so.

    Loving the ride so far!

    Proud 3rd owner of a an early 2000s Steelman Eurocross. Bought this off a coworker of similar gangly height with Mavic Ksyriums (that were overhauled and put on my 2013 Giant TCR), and 9 speed Shimano Dura-Ace RD and shifters. I recently did a bike tour from Tillamook, OR to San Francisco, CA, and before I left, the right shifter decided to crap out, so my friend let me borrow his Dura-Ace bar end shifter. Which wasn't all that weird...considering he was running the left shifter on his bike.



    Here's the latest non-touring version, rocking the flat bar 'cause I like to channel my inner XC racer. Fit is similar to my 2012 Giant XTC. Bit of a frankenbike, but that's how I roll


    -Shimano Ultegra Hubs/Mavic Open Pro Rim, 32 hole.
    -Continental CycloXKing front, Continental Cyclocross Race rear, both 700x35.
    -Race Face Forged Crank, 32/44T.
    -Campagnolo BB.
    -Shimano Deore long cage RD.
    -Shimano Deore cassette, 11/36.
    -Shimano XTR FD.
    -Shimano XT pedals.
    -Paul Neo-Retro front, Touring Canti rear.
    -Chris King headset.
    -Ritchey setback seatpost, WTB Silverado (soon to be Thomson setback).
    -3T ARX Team stem, 120mm x 6 degree.
    -Specialized flatbars (I "aquired" when I was an intern at the big S)
    -ESI Chunky grips.
    -Shimano brake levers.
    -Shimano Acera 10 speed shifters.

    This is my 2012 Blue Norcross CX:

    I built it up with spare parts from road bike upgrades, and ended up with a really fun bike! With slicks on, it's my winter/vacation bike, and it's great at the cyclocross races, too.

    Here's mine. Took the pics this morning. Built it up in 1997. Have ridden it all over this country. 3x7 Drivetrain still despite 10 speed wheels. My thrice weekly commuter, hence the Nokian Hakkapeliitta A10 tires currently on it. But I typically ride it on the same trails I ride my MTB on.

    Absolutely lovin' the change from a stiff carbon roadie to a comfy Ti Cross. I've been riding this all over during the winter. Road, gravel, singletrack even.

    2015 Van Dessel FTB

    XL, ST-685 hydro disc, FC-M980 XTR 180mm cranks I had laying around
    27mm wide, 25mm tall carbon tubs on Bitex hubs with Challenge Grifos for race.
    Stock wheels with WTB Nano 40C's for everything else
    38T x11-32

    Other bikes are a Pivot carbon 429, carbon crux and Cervelo S5. The FTB is my favorite bike to ride. Incredibly compliant and comfy. Hydro discs open up new types of riding I would not have considered on the canti braked, much stiffer riding carbon crux or slower, heavier, less comfortable 429. The 429 is fast and comfy but the FTB is just another level.

    This is my 2012 Pedal Force CX2. It's a great road bike alternative and gravel bike.
    The bike will also take fenders and a rear rack for unlimited usage.

    The Origin 8 CX700 frame was ideal for my budget Monster-cross build. With room for 700x50 tires, disc or cantilever brakes, Road or MTB rear drop-out spacing. The rear-entry horizontal rear drop-outs will permit single-speed, IGH and derailleur drivetrains. The frame-set is a bit heavier than a Surly Cross Check, the rear drop-outs and the fork are extra strong & heavy and a little overbuilt.

    It took a few weeks of searching, finding a frameset wasn’t easy. These sell out quickly and are prices at about $200 for both the frame & fork. I finally found one on eBay in December. The geometry in the largest size is a good fit for me. The frame arrived and I was surprised at the quality. The tube-set is 4130 aerospace standard. The welds are skillfully done, but less smooth than my Soma. The paint was very good, with good color and as tough as most automotive finishes.

    I wanted to keep costs low, so I decided on cantilever brakes. The Tektro 720 brakes are good performers at a great price. Rim-brake touring wheels are also budget friendly, I found a new set of 40 spoke Velocity Dyad on Formula high flange hubs for about $130 delivered. Disc brakes would have been nice, but they limit racking options, add weight and would require a pricier wheelset.

    I was hoping to use a Shimano 105 triple crank-set and build a 3x10 drivetrain, but the arms on road crank with external bearings won’t clear the chain-stays. So I installed a Shimano Deore “Trekking” crank-set with 48, 36 and I installed a 22t small chainring. This was matched to a 12-27 nine speed cassette. Tiagra STI “brifters” and a front derailleur for triple were installed. A Deore SGS rear derailleur completes the drivetrain.

    The handlebars needed to fit the off-road personality of the build, Salsa Moto-Ace Woodchipper handle bars improve rough surface stability and work well with STI levers. A Thomson Elite seat-post is held by Surly seat-post clamp.

    To save some weight and to add mid-blade fork rack mounts, I replaced the Origin 8 fork with a new Surly Cross Check fork. The fork is much lighter, looks great and should provide a more compliant ride. The practical tire clearance is a good match for the frame, with room for 700x45 or larger tires & fenders both front & rear.

    This build project is best compared to other touring bikes. It's off-road-touring tough but also touring bike heavy. The weight is within 1 pound of a Surly Cross Check using the same build items. The bike is lighter than a stock Surly Long Haul Trucker, Salsa Vaya or Fargo.

    Cross'd Up Gravel Grinder 2013 Cannondale CaadX

    This is my "one bike to rule them all" solution. I bought it to replace my dedicated road bike. Uses include: gravel roads, single track, fire roads, commuting to work, road rides on the weekends, training rides, climbing, endurance rides (50+ miles), and has braze ons to attach fenders and racks for really long hauls. It's a great utility bike.Post your 'cross bike-img_4833.jpg

    It took a few weeks of searching, finding a frameset wasn’t easy. These sell out quickly and are prices at about $200 for both the frame &amp; fork. I finally found one on eBay in December. The geometry in the largest size is a good fit for me. The frame arrived and I was surprised at the quality. The tube-set is 4130 aerospace standard. The welds are skillfully done, but less smooth than my Soma. The paint was very good, with good color and as tough as most automotive finishes.

    I wanted to keep costs low, so I decided on cantilever brakes. The Tektro 720 brakes are good performers at a great price. Rim-brake touring wheels are also budget friendly, I found a new set of 40 spoke Velocity Dyad on Formula high flange hubs for about $130 delivered. Disc brakes would have been nice, but they limit racking options, add weight and would require a pricier wheelset.

    I was hoping to use a Shimano 105 triple crank-set and build a 3x10 drivetrain, but the arms on road crank with external bearings won’t clear the chain-stays. So I installed a Shimano Deore “Trekking” crank-set with 48, 36 and I installed a 22t small chainring. This was matched to a 12-27 nine speed cassette. Tiagra STI “brifters” and a front derailleur for triple were installed. A Deore SGS rear derailleur completes the drivetrain.

    The handlebars needed to fit the off-road personality of the build, Salsa Moto-Ace Woodchipper handle bars improve rough surface stability and work well with STI levers. A Thomson Elite seat-post is held by Surly seat-post clamp.

    To save some weight and to add mid-blade fork rack mounts, I replaced the Origin 8 fork with a new Surly Cross Check fork. The fork is much lighter, looks great and should provide a more compliant ride. The practical tire clearance is a good match for the frame, with room for 700x45 or larger tires &amp; fenders both front &amp; rear.

    This build project is best compared to other touring bikes. It's off-road-touring tough but also touring bike heavy. The weight is within 1 pound of a Surly Cross Check using the same build items. The bike is lighter than a stock Surly Long Haul Trucker, Salsa Vaya or Fargo.













    Wow! Great build oldnnew! I have a stock build vaya that is a tank. Great job on the weight savings and overall build.

    Used for racing in the winter cross season and commuting in the summer. Swap out the cranks and wheels between the two seasons. frame set and finishing kit are stock but everything else is a hobble of additions.

    Here's my Raleigh Tamland One. It's a great ride. I bought this to replace a Nishitski Prestige which I had extensively modified but rarely rode. I stuck with steel and couldn't be happier.

    Very interesting to say the least. I like the short chainstays.

    Really would love to see your riding position on this beast. A little confused by the rest of the geometry. So many questions...How tall are you? Is it an old track bike? What's the clearance like on those single pivot brakes? Why have you flipped the drops rather than run a longer fork steerer?

    Glad you like it and have lots of questions.

    The chainstays are 385mm so this is tight but does not look un-balanced.
    Seat tube is at 75* and the Head is 71*, I use a short 39mm off-set and have lots of trail, it gives a very stable ride on gravel. I am 6'2", 34" inseam. ETT = 600mm. This bike I made to my measurements, so sorry, if you don't have the legs.........

    The frame is in fact a clean sheet design that was inspired by an English bike brand from circa1900, a Humber Cross Tube bike, they came out with the Duplex forks and Chainstays. I took the main Frame section and hot-rodded it using the twin tubing theme. As a tall person, and wanting to enjoy the lighter weights that shorter people can have in their bikes, a lot of frame material is duplicated within the Headstock, so using a short head and steerer tube reduces mass, as well as using a shorter H/bar stem, trimmed down H/bar. Bike weighs 22lb, though I have not really got a particularly lightweight groupset or wheels. I intended this bike to just be a commuter of sorts and a fun ride on gravel tracks on the way home for half an hour or so. The ride position is not as radical as first appearance suggests. Mostly riding on the hoods, my back angle is at 45*, on the drops - fairly flat. I live where it is, I believe, windy like Chicago, and to be able to cut into a strong wind is essential at times, but hey, big gearing and a tail wind = big speeds. I have just enough clearance on those brakes, this bike reminds me of when I was younger and we would put larger tyres on our 700 wheels and jam them into our steel road bikes and go hit the trails before MTB was invented - yes, I'm an old fella. You gotta enjoy the ride and this is fun.

    The 1989 Specialized Stumpjumper Team (Tange Prestige frame) is my latest drop-bar conversion for gravel riding and light single-track. Added 11-36 cassette and 2.2" rubber. Geometry is great for this purpose (similar to the new Rawland Ravn https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...og/W_vYvWvodWc ).

    Lynskey Pro Cross -- my CX and gravel bike. Also use it for road-riding -- Hutchinson Sector 28 on it right now. Ultegra 6800 groupset. Was going to get the Di2 Ultegra, but got talked out of it.

    Kona Major Jake

    Just picked it up.

    Major Jake is a mix of 105, an Ultegra RD, and TRP mechanical brakes. The wheels are Stans Iron Cross. The only change I foresee is a switch to Ultegra RS-685 hydraulics before the fall race season, as the TRPs are underwhelming compared to say, the XTs on my hardtail. I know it's apples and oranges, but still. It's only money.

    This morning I did a grocery run, and then in the afternoon went out for an hour to run errands and get a cookie.

    This is my ride:



    It now has a B17 saddle. The frame is steel. The fork is a CX carbon Enve. I put 35mm Clemency Xplor USH 120 tpi tires on it for off-road (the photo has 28 slicks).

    (It is technically "adventure road", but I think that just means the frame is a bit more forgiving, and the brake hose is on the bottom rather than the top of the top tube.)

    How do you like the Nashbar? I have a frame that I have yet to build up and I'm curious how you like it and it's heft. My 54cm weighs ~7lbs and that's more than my 18" One One Inbred 29er.

    Asylum Meuse with new TRP fork

    I originally posted this on RBR, but I spend more time here so a figured I'd post here too...

    My Asylum Meuse with TRP's new thru axel fork. Ultegra drivetrain, HyRd stoppers (they are fantastic!), and this is shown with the dirt wheels: Ritchey WCS (DT Swiss) hubs laced to Velocity Aileron rims. Freshly mounted Challenge Gravel Grinder 38s fit with room to spare.

    Weight with this set of wheels is 19.7lbs, with road wheels it's 19.2lbs. Not exactly a weight weenie bike, but plenty light for me!

    My "road" wheelset is DT Hubs laced to Pacenti SL25 rims with Sapim Laser spokes and Schwalbe The One tubeless 28 tires... Buttery smooth!
