1 week and seven miles old. Desperately needs the new saddle to come in, new bars, new crank rings, new wheels that aren't boat anchors, and to be covered in mud. This bicycle will experience glory on the weekly-winter CX Sunday course and a few gravel grinds throughout the year.
Bought this Norwegian brand CX-bike today. So far very satisfied with DI2 shifting and the bike handles well also. Took it for 45 miles of hilly gravelgrinding . Had to tighten the headset on the way home, a stiff fork and a loose headset on a rocky decent is pretty scary.
Obviously there are plenty of local cyclocross bike manufacturers here in Belgium, but still, I was drawn to a legendary American frame, which I built up with SRAM Force, TRP brakes, DT Swiss/Tune wheels and a lot more Ritchey stuff. It rides brilliantly, especially on longer rides. For proper cx racing, carbon fibre is the way to go, but I use this bike on 2-3 hour rides where my friends are on MTBs, and on anything bar very rocky downhills, they are at a disadvantage.
