    I love the simplicity of a SS. NIce!

    Just curious, how much was your build versus buying a new SS bike? It helps to have a parts bin. I got a bit carried away on my latest build and bought some new parts even though I had some in my parts bin. Color wasn't right or I wanted something shiny.

    Thanks djork
    I usually like to built my own from frame up.
    If I do buy a complete I always give them my own flare.(rarely)
    I also build my own wheels

    I had one of those, but never got on with it. Lasted about three months in my stable. Part of it was the geometry of the 61cm frame, which I never felt quite comfortable with. Still a sweet ride. I was running a bullhorn bar, but I think I would have liked it more with a flat bar, as you have yours configured. Enjoy.

    Do you race CX with it? If so, how do you like it? I'm considering one for my SSCX build.
