Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Good looking bike. I'm jealous. Good luck at the race. Get it dirty.

looks nice

looks like you are a little long on the rear brake housing and derailleur housing near the seat clamp. Probably works great right now, but I imagine it will fad quickly when it gets some dirt in there.

Questions

What bars are you running?

Are those the new Avid brakes?

Good luck racing that thang

yeah, after i put it together i noticed i was being overly conservative with the housing... i know it needs to be shorter, but at this point im just happy having it done and riding it a bit, im sure i will get it cut down soon though.
the bars are fsa k wing pro compacts in 44cm and the brakes are the new shorty 6s, they work very well, much better than the shorty 4s that i had ridden.

Nice looking mo-cheen!!! I had one of the original "snake belly" green Limbas, bought in '99. 2.5 lb. Reynolds scandium frame. Took me seven years to break it.

How were you able to route the FD cable on the downtube? Doesn't look like there are cable stops, but I do see them on the top tube and seat tube

there are bosses to route it for either a top pull or bottom pull fd, there is a mount for a downtube cable hanger on the non drive side.
