    Nice job!

    As for lowering your handlebars? On a 'cross bike? That you want to race??

    I disagree. Looks like you might have your bars positioned just right. Cyclocross is not about being "aero" and commuting on the bike needs to be comfortable.

    Ha, what we need is a sticky thread called "Extreme Makeover: Bicycle Edition"

    Looks good.
    For asthetic reasons, I'd ask for a stem change to silver. But if that one already fits...

    Yeah, gotta love hand built OP's. Mine are almost as fast my Ksyrium Elites, only ~30g heavier, and the best part: everybody assumes I'm on some sort of generic build and must be strong as an ox.

    Nice conversion. I sold my Crossroads to a buddy who promptly left it unlocked outside the bar... It might be a safe town but it's not that safe.
