Iím considering a Cross Check build this winter for some semi-supported touring and chip ní seal sprinting.
If I can afford it, this will be my first frame-up build. I want the overall build to work well and look cohesive. When I go to the shop, Iíd like to take some pics of things that I like to help the conversation.
Iím unsure if I want to go with a more vintage/functional vibe or more techie and sleek. So Iím putting out the call for pics and inspiration.
Feel free to post pics/links to an all-up ride, or just a component (crank, seat, whatever) that works for you.
Iíll start. This is my Bianchi Imola, 2009 edition (some of you have seen this pic before). It is my point of reference, and balances tech and vintage pretty well. It will remain my smooth-road ride.
