Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented.

Her's mine after a first shake out ride, actually more like a cruise around. Will take it around Salem Lake this week for it's first dirt/gravel romp.

2012Motobecane Fantom Uno CX

I will have to shorten the brake cables as they are a bit long and make the braking feel mushy.

I had to clean her up good and replace the brake pads and saddle. The stem was too long so a Ritchey took it's place. The drive side crank has a problem with it's pedal threads so had to cleaned up by re-tapping. Will have to keep an eye out for another crankset.Tires are the original Kenda kwicks 30cc in great shape but some 32cc specialized will take their place. Grip and tread pattern are very much the same.

Plans for this include trail/gravel use and comuting later on.

Thanks for looking, 3Speedslow

Nice. The white stem looks a little out of place, but that's pretty minor.

can you tell me what the deal is with the seat tube water bottle bosses? Are their spacers on there? I've seen them on the trek marketing shots as well but they only ever show them on the seat tube.

Nice rig!
You find the OEM garmin mount to sufficient when CX'n?
Mine would move around a bit when on a rough course/terrain.
I ended up buying a proper mount, Barfly 2.0.
Now it doesn't move unless I want it to.

I believe the Crockett has them, but the Ion/Boone doesn't.

The Boone was actually where I first noticed them. Are they for front derailleur clearance? The campagnolo internal battery? That the only two the I can think of.

You are right about the stem. I am waiting on a black one. I was wondering about the water bottle bosses too, haven't taken them off yet but will.

I have had no issues with the garmin moving around, much less coming off.

They are spacers and I don't know their purpose. I took them off and put the screws back in.

I wonder why trek is doing this. FD clearance is the most logical, but the bosses seem high enough on most examples that it wouldn't be an issue.

Finished my build a couple weeks ago and have been having a blast , this bike has given new life to some familiar trails and is capable of some mild trials moves.
2014 Crux disc frame and fork , MTB gearing to handle the trails I like, Stans wheelset with 700x40c tubeless , and Hope Mono disc brakes adapted with Barend shifters 2X10. 18lbs 4 oz which is respectable for an aluminum frame dual disc bike IMO.
This is pretty much a budget rip of Martyn Ashtons Road bike party II bike and somewhat of a tribute to a down ( but not out) biking great.
Anyway, Fun build and really fun learning to ride "in the drops"

What do you need cross brakes/interuptors for?
With hydro you really only need 1-2 finger to grab the lever.

Brake interuptors...Google them...
Heck search BF, I'm sure you'll find a few threads.
You must be a noob to CX, or 12 if you've never heard of them.
Cross brake is a term for noobs who don't know what Brake interuptors are.

LOL. I must have registered here when I was 3.

FYI, Brake interuptor is an old term. Now days people call them Crosstop Brake Lever. I don't know why you have to insult me the way you did, but I laughed because I haven't heard that term in a while. Anyway, sorry if I hurt your feeling. Have a great night.

EDIT: I work in the industry but, feel free to guide me to things that I don't know.
