Yeah it's one of the best bikes I've ever been on. I'm a little hesitant to add new components since I'm so pleased with it. Why fix something that isn't broken? Although, I'm in the market for a new rear hub.
I've installed a Phil Wood High Flange front hub on a 36H Mavic Open Pro rim and I can say that this worked out so well it makes me wonder why I didn't do this first. Makes a MUCH smoother, and faster, ride. Plus I've hit dozens of pot holes and the rim is true as the day it was built. Great for me since I'm 210lbs.
Curious what the 2012 CX looks like got pics?
Original bar tape finally wore off. Wrapped in Brooks Brown leather. Very comfortable.
Aside from the PW hub, the Brooks saddle is the best upgrade.
