    My Crosser-wocky. Ready to wock and roll.

    Im stoked dudes. Just built my first wheelset to race XC and cross on. I think I did a pretty good job but time will tell for sure...

    They are Stan's Crest rims on Hope Pro II hubs, supercomp spokes, and Michelin Mud 2 tires.

    Believe it or not this set is THREE pounds lighter than the nobbies on flows I usually race with. The difference is going to be huge!!

    Here are a couple pictures of Felix the Cats' identity crisis!

    I get to test em out and dial in the tire pressure tomorrow after we set up Sundays race course. It should be an awesome race. Im stoked because there is a section of fast smooth singletrack that is wide enough to pass multiple roadies!

    Just wanted to share my bike cuz im excited.
    Peace and grease!

    I think you should get dirt drops, but that is pretty cool.

    And nice garage, btw. I need to get mine organized.

    I agree! I love drops. Especially for off road. Note the Schwinn Cimarron in the second pic you know I had to slip it in..

    My main issue right now is finding a stem to use with Midges that will be similar to my reach now(a little more aggressive would be better). I also hacked off all my steerer...


    Here are some Midge numbers.
    Overall drop - 112mm
    Sweep forward - 64.5mm

    So lets just say I wanted the exact same reach and drop. I would need a stem that is 112mm higher and 64.5mm further forward? Is that pretty much how it works or am I missing something?

    Im thinking
    Midge Bars in black
    BB7s
    Sram s-900 carbon singlespeed drop levers
    Nicest stem that works well.

    Look forward to hearing what yall say about the stem.

    P.S. I wish that was my garage(if I had one). Thats the shop I work at which is connected to the University of Alabama.

    awesome bike. is there a reason why you route the front brake cable that way? i assume its temporary until you finalize your cockpit.
    everything sucks but my vacuum cleaner.

    Thanks dude. It should be a fun cross racer. I weighed it today at 19lbs and 4oz W/ bottle cage + bell.

    As for the cables, well, it makes a nice arc around the headtube. ***Note rule #73***

    I will cut them shorter when I bleed them(if i ever need to)

    Nice man, what gear inches are you going to run for the race? Can you get a 40t+ with your bcd?

    Im running 32x15. 58gis. Its perfect unless I have another asthma attack like today. Like an idiot I smoked a cigar yesterday. I payed for it today. I felt like someone was sitting on my chest.

    The race should be fun if my lungs hold up. The singletrack is awesome! And there are 2 sets of barriers and a jump up. Its a 2 foot sharp brick wall. It would destroy a rim and tube if you hit it.

    This is gonna be way more fun than brookside!

    Are you running the Mud 2's tubeless? It's a nice setup man. Bring it to the Wednesday ride and I'll bring my cx bike, makes for a fun loop!

    Also I have some surly 104 bcd 34t and 36t if you ever grow a pair and want to man up.

    Damnnit Stew dont make me kick your ass with all this "man up grow a pair" ********. Look at times for Dead Dog. Take your time and remove 2 mins(the two mins it took you to fix your boo boo ass bianchi) and then look at my time and tell me who is the daddy.

    Lets do it the Wednesday after next. I cant do it this Wednesday due to a work meeting. I have been seriously slacking with the Wednesday night rides and I can feel the hit in my fitness. Not Kool.

    Oh yeah, Its set up tubeless. 40 in the rear and 37.5 up front. They felt good so im gonna leave em there. Dont want to ding in a rim when im blasting through the rooty singletrack passing roadies.

    It actually did fold over / burp a little today. I jumper it a few feet in the air and felt weird when I hit. I cant explain it but I prob wont do too much jumping tomorrow.

    Niner forks will maim you and your family while sexually molesting any women under 18.

    At least that is my lawsuit. I still ride the fork on all my bikes.

    Hahaha, you had to bring that up. I'm sorry I couldn't hear you all the way back in the 2's. Come up to the ss class with the big boys next time.

    Dude, My Niner fork will molest anything that moves. My poor cat knows to keep his distance.

    I just installed the BB7s and drop bars. It rides well on the street but we will see how it handles dirt tomorrow. I also was installing some cinelli red/black splatter tape and it broke right in two... This is the second time Cinelli has snapped on me while wrapping bars with a normal amount of force. Im done with that crap... So ole trusty black sram tape it is.... I may go to pink in a month or so...

    Here are some pics with my mountain wheels.
