Thanks! I shoot with a Canon 20D, for those I used my 24-70 f/2.8L lens.

I am considering to ride my bike all year round, but living in Chicago the winter can be a big pain in the butt(snow, freezing temp,snow, and more snow). Seeing all these cross bikes I was wondering if I can convert my Lemond Etape in to cross cycle by just changing the tires. If this sounds like a stupid question bare with me I am new to the sport.
Thanks
Dan

Maybe, if you can fit some very narrow knobbies in there. I'm not sure how much that would gain you, in terms of poor weather performance. The Etape is spec'd with 700x25s, so I'd imagine that the chainstays and fork won't allow anything more substantial than 700x28, like many road bikes.

somnambulant 08-08-07 10:37 AM

Yeah, you might be better off with a dedicated winter bike if you can swing it. You probably won't be able to fit very large knobbies onto the Lemond, plus it likely doesn't have fender eyelets (or if so, definitely not space for knobbies AND fenders). You can pry my fenders from my cold (wet) hands... especially in slushy Winter weather.

Although to be honest I generally don't have much of a problem riding my fixie with 23c slicks all winter here in Toronto. But, I don't think we get nearly as bad weather compared to Chicago in the Winter. If it gets bad enough, I'll just take transit, but I only resorted to that a handful of times the past couple of years.

haven't weighed it with tyres, but sans tyres it's 21 lbs - so it should be 25-26 all in.

spec:

Nashbar: frame, carbon fork, headset spacers, and stem. Chris King: headset. Shimano: UN-72 bottom bracket, XTR M-952 rear derailer, 12-25 HG-70 cassette, HG-93 chain. FSA: 48/38 cyclocross crank. Campagnolo: Centaur front derailer, Centaur brifters and cableset. Avid: Road Disc brakes. Easton: EA30 seat post. Selle Italia: Fokus saddle. Specialized: bottle cage (16 years old!). Ritchey: pedals. Continental: Twister (non-folding) tyres. Salsa: 46 cm Bell Lap handlebars.

wheelset: custom built at my LBS with Deore disc hubs, Sun CR-18 rims and straight-gague DT Swiss spokes.

other: Cinelli tape, generic seat quick release, Jtek Shiftmate and Kenda tubes.

haven't had a chance for a real ride yet, just tooled around the yard, but this is going to be fun!

I was looking at that frame wondering how it would hold up. When you get a few thousand miles on that thing log back and give an update.
Thanks

Thanks for the compliment. I got both bikes second hand of a semi-pro rider that lives local to me, who had only used them for 1/2 the season before his proper bikes arrived.

Definately a case of who you know this time.

Here is my Fuji Cross Pro ( i paid 1250$ at Performance Bike in Paoli, pa), after a seemingly endless wait. I am stoked so far, minus the rock hard saddle. I added a pimped out carbon cage, and yellow candy c pedals. I will change the stock saddle out.

As far as sizing, the 54 is the perfect size for me ((69-70") 32" pant inseam, @205lbs) so far in the drops sitting up and seat height, although i have only been aboard for 60-90 minutes a ride since getting the bike Monday. The sizing chart and the effective length of the top tube were the key specs from the fuji website and testing larger bikes, like the 58/56 and feeling a bit uncomfortable.

Anyway i am starting to work on dismounts and mounts, i feel completly newbie, which suits me fine, the whole thing is very challenging. I have starting adding runs to my mountain biking and cross rides to get used to the activity. Overall i am stoked....!

Liking it a lot so far. Really light and responsive, haven't got too much offroad time on it yet though. Plan to upgrade the fork in the future.
