Since she is more or less "finished" I thought I'd post up a photo. Here she is:
Sorry I'm too busy/lazy to take real pictures.
I tried to keep it mostly stock. The base bike is a 2013 CAADX with the 105 trim. Major changes are a SRAM D7 dynamo hub on an A23 rim, B&M IQ Cyo Premium headlight and Secula tail light. (You can see the wires run on the downtube using Shimano Di2 wire cover tape), Electra Ticino Fenders, and Pasela Panaracer 32c tires. Small touches are Arundel stainless steel cages, Thomson setback seatpost, and bar tape chainstay protector.
Changes I'd like to make down the line: For sure, this thing needs bigger gearing for the road. It comes stock with 46/36 cyclocross gearing and I'm thinking a 50/34 would be more appropriate. I also want to build up a rear wheel with another A23 rim and am toying with the idea of some tubeless cyclocross tires with a fine file tread down the center.
All in all, I've been really happy with this bike. I love my Bianchi, but hate locking up a really nice bike at school, and I wanted something with real fenders. I think aluminum cross bikes are pretty much the best thing to come around on the market since proper touring bikes have become such a niche product. And even though this was the farthest thing from a weight weenie build, the bike as pictured actually only weighed in at 23.5 pounds. I was pretty surprised with that.
