    Front yard, actually. She was all clean from being stripped down and a new drivetrain and wheels installed. Rest assured she picked up some dirt already today from a short dirt road ride. Saturday she was filthy from top to bottom after 43 miles of gravel and soupy red clay on a rainy day gravel grinder.

    Here's my "new" bike for this season. It's a NOS Cannondale XTJ frameset. Started life as a complete, but when it didn't sell it was stripped and parts were sold off of it.
    The frame's been hanging from the rafters of the shop where I work ever since.
    It's built with a BEER Components EBB, new 105 cranks, take-off bin TRP Euro-X brakes, and wheels and some Cane Creek levers I swiped off of my old CX bike.

    Sure we get content with them for a period of time, then the bug bites again, or we buy a new bike, & the "cycle" starts again...

    In theory, perhaps. But with my arthritis restricted neck mobility, it would only handle better up to the point that I ran into something while staring at the ground right in front of my front wheel.

    I have learned to handle bikes quite well with handlebars level with the saddle. If this was a custom built frame, I would have the head tube high enough to allow a level stem. But it is what it is.

    2013 RedLine Conquest Carbon Team. Ordered the frame from my shop that sponsors us and basically took all components off my 2010 TCR Advanced. Had an extra Red Crank set from my Jamis Xenith Elite and shazaam! These are my Velocity A23 rims running Tubeless with Vittoria XN mounted for practice/pit wheels. My race wheels are 24/28 Hed C2's with Chris King R45's and Sapim CXray spokes that will run tubeless as well. Early practice runs have been sweet. She ways in at 16lbs 4oz as is with a 1X10 (42, 11-28). Sorry about the crappy cell phone pic!

    Just got my first cyclocross, mostly for commuting. Stock BD bike with just a couple of accessories (BD bikes are the A-cup of bike porn, I know). This bike gets me all the way to downtown Chicago from my home in the suburbs. Here it is on the CTA Blue Line. My favorite part is going up and down the stairs to/from the L.

    That's awesome. I'm jealous of the tool roll. Been trying to get one of those for a year.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    How much tire clearance is there for these guys?

    Is your seat post backwards?

    The bike comes stock with 38's Bluesdawg is running 40's. The seatpost is the cobble gobbler, it's suppose to smooth out the ride.

    2012 Ridley X-Fire...still need to do a little tweaking with the fit. Its the same size as my road bike (56) so it feels a little big, having a traditional Euro cx geometry- tall seat tube, straight top tube etc. Not much room in the 'standover', but after a little research I decided this didnt matter and went with it. I think it will work just fine. Got smokin' deal on it too.

    This is my 2004 Fuji Cross. Not the fanciest bike out there but I really like it. The only downside with the stock bike is that the spokes on the rear wheel were defective and I've had to replace a few of them. Other than that the bike has held up very well. It's reasonably light and very responsive. I also really like the cross gearing up front (48-38) and the reasonably big cogset in the rear (12-27):

    Do you ride at night regularly? Might be a good idea to get another rear light for your saddle bag.
    Your current set-up might have the saddle bag blocking your rear reflector/light from a driver's perspective. Just saying ...

    The lights were a temporary set up and I didn't use the saddle bag when I rode it at night. They're coming off as I have a dedicated commuter with lights.
