Heres mine.it's intended to be a near- replica of what robbie hunter used in the 2009 giro.
some changes since I took this photo, having changed the fit slightly . stem is now slammed with a FSA K force to match the crank and seatpost, and I've changed the saddle as well. Hoods are still a mismatched black/white.

I was going to ask about how you deal with corrosion storing the bike outside

On the other hand it looks like a well thought out bike.

My bike after I rode yesterday. I think it's been about 3 years since I rode that front wheel and about 2 seasons since I rode that rear. I tried to line up the tires with the bottom of the screen/phone so that the bike would be level in the picture.



This is a "before" picture. I'll be installing a different stem/bar in the next few weeks I hope.

It has a Praxis 53T and an "I-forget-the-brand" 44T tandem inner ring.

Some fitment things I need to handle, like the washers that allow the cage to clear the front derailleur clamp. I can't find them and I haven't bothered going out and buying a couple washer things. So for now just one cage, and screws in the second cage's holes so water doesn't build up at the bottom of the seat tube.

Since most of my rides are under 2 hours outside or they take place on a trainer I rarely need more than a bottle. In the summer I'll carry two bottles or more.

Although not necessarily a good thing I didn't touch the bottle on that ride (about an hour in about 55 deg weather).

the clock has started on that. First one here in another week or two. I am a crit racer and came from a motorcross background but I am still scared to death to race cross. Just going to go out there and have fun.

Don't judge me punk…more from a complete lack of fitness. Remember how much you saw me racing this year? yeah…that's why.

It's just a little heckling, don't be afraid. Just get out of the pedals before the barriers!

your bike didn't get any love the first time around, apparently. just saw it today.

rare to see tubular wheel sets on MTBs (esp outside of european race short track courses), so i've gotta give props for that! i've got a set of tubulars . the difference between tubular and tubeless was shocking and is especially noticeable for stuff like sidehilling. i have run 15-16psi on the tubulars. (can't reliably get below 23-25 with tubeless.)

nice!

I am tempted to build a race rig out of a Specialized Allez frame and SRAM Force. About to pull the trigger >_>
