    Bianchi Roger

    Based on my experience with my San Jose, this bike must be the coolest thing ever set to rubber.

    I've been eyeing that bike lately. Looks really nice.

    It would be really cool if they made a SS CX frame that was disc only.

    don't see and canti-bosses on it. Although with the San Jose you're literally SWIMMING in credibility.

    I don't know where they race, but around here, 48X17 is not a cyclocross gear.

    I just bought one yesterday, and took a nice long ride on it today. The gearing is a bit much for the twigs I call my legs, but it is a really fun bike. Just what I wanted. Brap.

    I would run a 42 chain ring in the front. 48 is way too tall.

    The San Jose comes with a 42 x 17. 48 seems unreasonable.

    Anyone have the weight??

    There's a photo of a guy on a Roger about 3/4 of the way down this page.

    He's cool. I wonder what gear he's running. Not 48 that's for sure.

    Personally I'd prefer a steel frame and steel fork, but at least it's close. Hopefully we'll be seeing more CX bikes with discs!

    My first post on the forum. I thought that I would share my compromise between the Bianchi Roger and the San Jose. Best of both worlds?




    Sure, if you have $1200 to spend, the Roger may be the way to go, but if you have the itch for at homegrown projects why not make the best out of what you have.

    Used San Jose: $350
    Self built wheel: $20 cxp22 rim, $20 WTB Speed XC hub, $40 spokes
    Avid BB7: $50 NOS
    Generic carbon fiber fork: $100

    Total: $580.
