My "New" Cross Bike
So, a while back I posted my "cross" Peugeot and asked if it was safe. I rode it like that for a few months and decided that it was worth buying a real cross bike. I just wasn't confident that it wouldn't taco on the trail and I couldn't put normal cross tires on it.
I picked up a old steel Fuji Cross (Late 90s or 2000-01) made of Columbus Genius on eBay and finally got it built up and took a shakedown ride today!
Anyway, some work still needs to be done.
1. I have some Salsa Poco bars, but am waiting to exchange a stem for the correct length.
2. I need to order a wider square taper bottom bracket for my old Sugino compact cranks
3. Need to change the cable routing so the Campy 9 Speed shifters work better with the Shimano 8 speed gearing (2 minutes - I forgot to do this when I built it up).
4. Replace tires (already have a set of Ritchey Speedmax)
