    Pics of the N+1 of 2012

    Idea is to post pics of your NEW N+1 of 2012 along with a brief comment. No extra comments from "NON" N+1 members- Just the new bikes with a comment from the owner.

    SEE how it works--Mine will follow in a few days when I get it.

    Purchased January 20th. It replaces a similar S1 (Team Soloist) that has an aluminum frame with it's carbon frame.

    I'll be switching out to a Campagnolo Centaur groupset so my hands don't have to speak multiple languages (nothing wrong with the Rival on it now).

    Love the bike - it helps smooth out the poor road surfaces I usually ride on. It's motivated me to ride a bit more than I usually do. Woohoo - first new road bike I've purchased since 1983!

    '07 Cannondale Caffeine 29er Lefty new to me. Really loving being back on a mountain bike. Really takes your mind away from things. Nothing to think about except what is right in front of you. I can ride most all winter and............ at night! Really helps to keep in shape over the winter. Wind chill at 5-8 mph isn't anything compared to 10-25mph! Plus there are no winds in the woods

    Picked this up January 31st. Colnago Ace w/Ultegra components. So far this bike has been awesome. Waiting for the red Zipp bar tape and second bottle cage to come in.

    After building this in September 2011;



    I built these in 2012;

    Origin 8 CX700 Monster Cross. This tough bike will be used for 50/50 trails and pavement. It will also be my primary winter snow & ice bike.

    The frame is ideal for my budget Monster-cross build. With room for 700x50 tires, disc or cantilever brakes, Road or MTB rear drop-out spacing. The rear-entry horizontal rear drop-outs will permit single-speed, IGH and derailleur drivetrains. The frame-set is a bit heavier than a Surly Cross Check, the rear drop-outs and the fork are extra strong & heavy and a little overbuilt.

    It took a few weeks of searching, finding a frameset wasn’t easy. These sell out quickly and are prices at about $200 for both the frame & fork. I finally found one on eBay in December. The geometry in the largest size is a good fit for me. The frame arrived and I was surprised at the quality. The tube-set is 4130 aerospace standard. The welds are skillfully done, but less smooth than my Soma. The paint was very good, with good color and as tough as most automotive finishes.

    I wanted to keep costs low, so I decided on cantilever brakes. The Tektro 720 brakes are good performers at a great price. Rim-brake touring wheels are also budget friendly, I found a new set of 40 spoke Velocity Dyad on Formula high flange hubs for about $130 delivered. Disc brakes would have been nice, but they limit racking options, add weight and would require a pricier wheelset.

    I was hoping to use a Shimano 105 triple crank-set and build a 3x10 drivetrain, but the arms on road crank with external bearings won’t clear the chain-stays. So I installed a Shimano Deore “Trekking” crank-set with 48, 36 and I installed a 22t small chainring. This was matched to a 12-27 nine speed cassette. Tiagra STI “brifters” and a front derailleur for triple were installed. A Deore SGS rear derailleur completes the drivetrain.

    The handlebars needed to fit the off-road personality of the build, Salsa Moto-Ace Woodchipper handle bars improve rough surface stability and work well with STI levers. A Thomson Elite seat-post is held by Surly seat-post clamp. To save some weight and to add mid-blade fork rack mounts, I replaced the Origin 8 fork with a new Surly Cross Check fork. The fork is much lighter, looks great and should provide a more compliant ride.



    My loaded touring bike for tow paths and pavement. It can support 40 lbs of racks & loaded packs. Could go coast to coast.

    • 48, 36 & 22t triple with a 12-27 nine-speed cassette
    • Salsa Woodchipper bars and bar end shifters
    • 40 spoke Velocity Dyad 29er rims with high flange hubs
    • 700x38 Schwalbe Marathon Cross tires

    Thought I was "done" in 2011, then all hell broke loose.....

    Will be building this to around 20 lbs, 8-sp Campy. About as new as I get.


    Following that, finally finishing a Supercorsa w/10sp Centaur. New to me.

    Picked this up on January 16th, to replace my comfort bike (I already had the cat, or I should say, he already had us) --

    I did NOT plan to buy a new bike last year. Who does? I asked the shop to install Di2 on my "old" bike, but in the course of stripping it down they found that it needed to be repaired because of a gouge in the frame from a chain drop. So while I was waiting, I bought a new Cervelo R5 and built it up with Di2 instead:

    Out of the box and you can see why There will be no ride today--Or possibly for a few days.

    The colour is quite pleasing and there will be no need for polishing as it is a matt finish--Including the white

    Stapfam,

    Very nice looking N+1. I'm sure you will get many, many enjoyable hours of riding out of it. Is the bar tape black or white?

    My new commuter. 2011 Fuji Cross 3.0 picked up on the 27th of January:

    Replaced my former commuter, a '07 Schwinn Le Tour GS, that was totaled by a Camry last October. Opted for a cross bike so I could run 35s and fenders on it (fenders are due to arrive tomorrow). Quite a comfortable ride.

    Somewhere, my N+1 for 2012 bike is being assembled, and eventually it wlll find it's way to me. Until that day comes, I must find contentment at drooling over everyone else's new bike, be it 2012 or otherwise. I'm almost to the point where I have the Specialized, Giant, Trek, Fuji, and Felt websites memorized now. Others, like Jamis, are getting close. Is it a bad sign when you have all the manufacturers websites saved in a bookmark folder? If so, I'm doomed.
