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 ... ;):beer:

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.

Trek Ion CX Pro frame, with Shimano 105-based 1x10 gearing (38 up front, 11-28 in the back) and a Paul chain keeper. Running tubeless 32mm Vittoria knobbies on (last year's) Ultegra wheels. Brakes are TRP CX8.4 Mini-Vs (which are insaaaaaane).


What a wicked bike. I've been rolling through post-typhoon debris this past week or so like it's nothing.

Still to do:
- PLAY WITH THE FIT SOME MORE (almost there!)
- Bontrager seatpost -> Thompson Elite setback
- Concor Light -> ??? saddle (something a little wider, robust, not too expensive)
- Bontrager bars -> FSA Omegas
- Retroshift lever(s), possibly
- Shimano SPDs -> Eggbeaters or Looks
- Maybe change to 36 up front or 30 max out back, for insanely steep climbs, of which there are many here

Stopped by the house on the test ride to introduce the Duc to her soon-to-be new stablemate.

Won't take delivery until after my wife and I get back from vacation in a couple of weeks, but put a deposit down on a '13 Bianchi Zurigo. It'll be my first pedal bike of any kind, but narrowed it down to a cross bike as a way to get into offseason endurance & leg training for my sportbike track/race hobby. A cross bike will give me a few options for riding/training. Also gear shopping before taking delivery so I have the proper riding attire for the cooler season....before the snow falls.

Fresh from having the steerer cut, I took it from the LBS straight to Alpenrose Dairy to race it...my new 2013 Kona Jake the Snake singlespeed.

Nice! what do you use to get the chain tension right?

Andy_K 09-26-13 08:55 AM

The frame has a PF30 BB shell, and I'm using a Problem Solvers E46 eccentric bottom bracket.

Just finished building this bike tonight - thought I'd post a photo before it gets dirty and never looks the same again.

52/11, what do you think this is, the road forum?!

Seriously though, that is a really sharp looking bike. I love those Campy black and red parts. I stole the idea and put red chainring bolts on the 105 crank on my road bike.

What do you think of the SRAM S700 Shifter/Brakes setup? I'm looking at getting a bike with that setup as well and I was wondering how the performance stood up. I haven't found many reviews yet on the 10spd setup. Nice bike.

At 22.9 lbs just the way you see it, it's too heavy for a road bike. Besides, it has a compact crank with a 12-30 cassette and cx tires. The road thread would tell me to take it elsewhere. :) When I bought the frame I didn't realize that the frame was a mix of road and cross geometry. The chain stay length is quite short and accommodates the 30c cross tire, and I have a 35c up front.

Thanks for the compliment. It took 5 months to build. I'm just sorry that it's the end of the season and won't get to ride it much. Something to look forward to for next spring.

The season is just starting, what are you talking bout?
Might be over for roadies, but not CXers.

LOVE IT, the braking is so good and have spoiled me so much that I now think the 6700 Ultegra brakes on my Roubaix suck. The modulation and power cannot be matched by a caliper brake, no regrets.

How about comfort?
Those shifters/oil reservoirs look a little uncomfortable.
