    Ready for the season. Well, at least the bike is.
    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

    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.


    Pre-ride:





    Post-ride:





    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.

    Nice! what do you use to get the chain tension right?
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    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.

    Actually other than being taller they feel pretty much the same as regular sram hoods.

    Thats a lovely looking machine Jadias... agree 100% about those 8.4s....

    Should also treat that bike to an ultegra/dura ace shifter/Rr mech...

    Thanks! Honestly compared to the SRAM Rival on my road bike I don't really like Shimano, and I don't think going higher will fix that. Mainly it's the fact that the brake lever moves laterally - I just don't like that. Ideally I'd switch this all out to Rival or even just Apex, but I think I'll probably give Retroshift CX1s a shot actually.

    Given the abuse this bike is taking/will take, I can't really justify high-end shifting components like Ultegra/DA/Red.
