    Nothing, the chain is shorter than normal, and had a chain guard and a third eye.

    Heck! I'm not in it for the team kit. They don't look too warm, IMO, much prefer my jacket. Honestly, I can't imagine someone wanting to sponsor a last place rider anyways. Speaking of which, who is the sponsor? The bike shop? I just want to participate, try my best, & enjoy the comeraderie. Besides, the 3 Quebec City area races seem a little far for me to drive back & forth on the same day. I am waiting to see what OBC is up to & will attend the 200km range drives.
    I am hoping all the summer duathlon stuff/suffering will pay off during the CX season. I am hoping that I will do better. Not last, is a start! I am not sure about who suffered more but I suspect that I suffered the most given my 1st time & season last year.

    I gotta find a hill around hill & start hill sprinting or something soon.
    Bring it on!!!

    I presume you are asking me the question, goto the X-gear website http://www.x-gear.co.uk

    Not sure if delivery is available to the states

    Its Chris actually, the bikes used to belong to Martin, think the wheels are only sold complete. see http://www.x-gear.co.uk

    and thanks for the compliment about the bikes, they are wonderful to ride

    Here are some pics of my early '70s Gitane that I modified into a 'cross "look alike":

    Reynolds 531 frame (w/canti and cable braze ons added), Peugeot unicrown fork
    Paint is DuPont Centara, Chevy truck white
    Campy Strada crank (43t) w/homemade "bashgard"
    B17 saddle
    Chainstay guard is leather string from the fabric store wrapped around an old inner tube!

    Do you guys find your HR monitor really useful? Im debating whether to just get a normal computer or a HR monitor with odo and speedo?

    I used a computer with odo, speedo, max, average, etc. for more than ten years but decided that I don't want to be a "slave to the average speed" like I was. I used to hate it when the average speed dropped below 30 km/h when doing solo rides.

    Since a year or so I only use HR monitor (Polar). For health reasons - it's an ideal help in my attempt to loose weight

    Using a bathroom scale, about 20.2#. The saddle is fairly heavy and the wheels aren't the lightest but they're sturdy. Let's hope the Scandium frame is more durable than people make it out to be. I figure if the Cross Concept is Scandium... plus I'm only 130# and pretty nimble on my bike.

    Blast, nice setup but why the DuraAce BB? I wouldv'e thought the durability of an Ultegra would have been a big plus on a cross bike

    Thanks all, I can't wait to race it.

    Many of the parts on this bike I had collected in my spare parts box, including the DA BB. I debated buying a complete Conquest Pro but this brand new Team frame came up on Craigslist for $350 (the best part about buying the frame is I bought it from an Elite Woman CX racer so I met her in person). The only other parts I needed where a headset ($20 used S6/Craigslist), Time ATAC pedals ($45 used on Craigslist), brake pads ($20 new from LBS), and shifters ($100 near new on Craigslist).

    In the end, if you add the parts in from the parts box, it probably cost more and the Conquest Pro but at least this bike is one of a kind (and I got to meet and chat with a couple of elite cx racers to boot).

    On another note, Craigslist is awesome. You sometimes meet some great people and you sometimes get great deals... e.g. for $150 I got a set of Dura-Ace 7700 cranks and BB (the cranks are on the road bike) and for $135 I got 105 cranks, BB, FD, and RD.

    Now do I sell the Axis or the full-suspension MTB that I rarely ride?
