    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?

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

    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.

    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.

    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?

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

    The Nishiki has the stock paint, she was that clean when I found her.

    I'm not sure about the straight bar either, but they were laying around and getting no use. They work ok for city slicking.

    I should probably post this in the dumb questions thread but here I go:

    Is a cyclcross essentially a road bike with "nobby" tires? what components would I need to change in order to turn my existing road bike into a cyclecross?


    Thanks,
