My new race rig.

Just finished building my new 'cross bike today.

Snapped some pics when I got home.

Trek XO-1 58cm.




I don't plan on keeping those wheels on the bike. I'll be using my Race X-lite Aero's since they are bomb-proof. These wheels will be relegated to training wheels on my road bike.

Actually, I took her out on some trails that night. She's sufficiently dirty now.

I've swapped wheels but decided to keep my Bontrager Race wheels as a set of road wheels for this bike in the winter.

Now I'm looking at getting a set of Tufo Tubular Clinchers. Just trying to decide which ones to get.

Why not go for the X02 then? Price would be about the same assuming you don't already have the SRAM stuff, and you get nicer wheels.

at EP the XO1 is 1/2 as much as the X02, about a $500-600 difference.
