    Redline Conquest--I think it's a 2002, but I'm not sure. If anybody knows, do tell.

    The frame, fork, stem, headset, and cranks are stock. Bought off e-bay. Everything else is new and after looking at what the original component list included (Sora, etc.), definitely an upgrade. We will see how she holds up in a race at the end of the month.

    Yes, it was a triple set of 16" barricades. It really is not that hard, just carry some speed into a barricade and hope that you get up high enough because to not would be very very ugly when you are going that fast.

    My new 2005 Kona Jake the Snake:

    I'm very happy with it, although the transition from a mtb is harder on my neck than I thought it would be! I can't get over the speed though, I can't wait to try it with slicks next summer.

    My cross' bike is an old reliegh mtb that I put an extra wide BB on, to acomidate striaght cranks and a single chainring(currently a 42 tooth)I still have a casset in back, but hope to turn single speed soon.A straighter fork was put on,and narow tires.I hope to go to drops, and maybe 700c's with it by the end of the season.It weights maybe 25 pounds, proof a mtb bike can be cheap and light and reasonably effective for cross.investment so far:about 150 bucks!

    Cool bike.

    Did you make that chain ring guard and are you using one on the inside as well?

    Nice bike. By now you must have a few miles behind you. What's the verdict?

    It's a little bit heavier that i thought it would be but i'm very satisfied with how it handle. It deliver a very smooth ride an are very stable in the mud.

    I'm gonna change seatpost and saddle and will shave 0,4 kg, the original saddle is horrible for me, to wide at the wrong place. I also gonna change to triple chainrings tho i wanna ride at singletracks.

    A question: Can i fit a MTB-crank for instance a XT if i exchange the crankshaft (is that the right word?) and the front derilliair (spelling???)

    Sorry for my bad english, i'm swedish...

    Nice. Are those Xero XR-1 or XR-3 or XR-4 wheels? If they're XR-1, how are they holding up to off-road riding?

    They are the Xero Lite XR 2. No problems with them so far. Had them for just under a year and they still do not need to be trued.

    here's my Orbit, built up for commuting. i don't know too much about the frame. it was given to me by my brother, who has convinced me to try racing Cyclocross on it this season. it's a 57cm Reynolds 531. right now it's weighing in around 23 pounds. i've got some egg beaters and a short cage dura ace 9 speed derailleur on the way.

    jfmckenna,

    Yes, I did make the bashgard myself. Sorry to answer so late.

    I make them at work out of 11g aluminum sheet. First I spray it with layout fluid and scribe the circles I want with a compass. The outer circle I rough cut with a bandsaw and then smooth it out with a high-speed vertical sander. The inner circle for the crank spider I punch out with a hydralic hole punch designed for electrical cabinets and I use a small lever punch for the chainring bolts. Of course there is alot of final filing to do to get everything to line up and fit. The paint is just a can job but the primer is Zissner "Stain-Killer" (applied with a ***) so it won't chip off. The result is not perfect but looks halfway decent. There is a Third Eye Chain Watcher on the other side of the crank that I painted white.

    Ideally I could get the thing all machined in a fraction of the time but I'm afraid that would raise too many eyebrows, especially from a few of the nosy busybodies that work there!
