What size are those tires?

Ok Y'all,
Here's my new baby, my '07 Redline Conquest, less than a week old!
She's wicked fast over just about everything and is just a little more bike than I can handle at the moment, but that is quickly changing!

As my first CX bike, I'm morphing an old Bianchi. Here as it exists today. A CX fork w/ cantelever brakes, bar end shifters and 36/46 chain rings are on the list of next additions :)

That bike is awesome! A disc rear would be cool...

Tequila Joe 08-25-06 02:10 PM

Hey, Thanks for the nice comments. The CX experiment is fun and the bike is really starting to grow on me. I'm discovering a lot of things about building/riding CX. I don't think I will put ona rear disk because this would require a disk compatable rear hub and welding of disk tabs to the frame. However, thanks for the suggestion. If I discover that I CX quite a bit, I will buy a dedicated CX bike with disk brakes.

Any suggestions?

thatguy 08-28-06 08:30 PM

Oh, a disc brake. I thought you meant a disc wheel. Now THAT would be cool.

The latest version of my race bike...

2001 Kona Major Jake frame
Winwood carbon fork
Campagnolo Centaur 9v group
Truvativ Rouleur GXP 38/46 crankset
Shimano BR-550 brakes
Campagnolo Proton wheels
Tufo Prestige tubular clincher tires

Weighs just a bit more than 19 lbs. The second pic is how it looked four years ago.

CaptMatt15 08-28-06 10:04 PM

I must say, kudos to both the Bianchi and the Kona... couldnt ask for my lowly conquest to be trumped by nicer bikes :D

I just got my 'cross tubulars today, so in a few days I'll glue them up and get practicing for the upcoming cross season.

Is that a custom paint job?

Yeah, the only way I could find a frame in my size (49) without waiting for next year's bikes was to find a shop in another state that happened to have a team frame that didn't get built up. It's a sweet paintjob, I think. I raced my first race ever today. Got my *ss kicked, and I'll have to see how I feel about cross in a couple of days, but I'm pretty sure I'm hooked. I don't think I like the Eggbeaters; I think I may put something on with some platform. Otherwise, I was very happy with the bike.

jeremyb 09-13-06 10:58 AM

yeah i like the paint also.

Try the candys if you want more platform, then you wouldnt have to swap cleats.

Hey Steelforme, is that carbon fork stock on your bike? I think I have one just like it, but your headset seems to be integrated. Can you tell more about the source of the bike, and parts?

I unloaded my fixed gear to join the hip kids

Well, here's my nearly completed cross project. I picked up the frame for a really good price, moved some parts off my oldish road bike, bought a new fork and some tires, etc. Like all bike projects, it wasn't as cheap to put together as I imagined. Nonetheless, I think it looks allright and it's pretty light and stiff. I don't have a scale, so I don't know the weight. I'm still playing with the the tilt of the bars, I need a fang or 3rd eye for the chain, and I'm thinking about painting something on it. My first cross race is in a few weeks. I have no offroad handling abilities. Wish me luck.

Frame - Redline Conquest (pro?)
Fork - Generic Carbon, It's quite light, has an aluminum crown and seems stiff
Wheels - Mavic Reflex, 105 fr, Ultegra Rr, Conti Twisters (These were my first wheel build about 8 yrs ago)
D-Train - Shimano 600 Crank, 39t FSA Ring, Ultegra 9spd DR,11-23 Cassette, 42t ring used for chain retention.
Pedals - Time ATAC
Cockpit - Cinelli Eubios, Thomson 100mm, Ultegra 9spd STI, Salsa cross lever

The bike came out good! Let's get some dirt on those tires. Call upon Jeffery too.:D

Cynikal 10-05-06 10:46 AM

Thanks, Jeffery and I are hitting the trails on Monday, enjoying a public sector holiday ;) . Jeffery found a frame last night for his SS CX project, so we have a new build to think about. Any luck with finding a frame?

JimmyMack 10-05-06 12:21 PM

Sold some stock. IRO Rob Roy in the works. Maybe by Winter it will be done. In the meantime I have my curbside pickup.:D

Very nice SS bike, who did your painting?

Dang, Nice Peugeot, love the color, not sure if I care for the straight bars but everything else is sweet.
