Bike set up is perfect - the guy serviced the bike before selling it on ebay. The price was crazzzzy low as he wasn't willing to post an was scrupulously honest about a minor headset problem that will cost me 10 to fix, when I can be bothered!

    The bike will soon have BMX pedals and probably a higher stem.
    It sounds great but I can't see the picture.
    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    Both really nice. I like the chromo stems and extended seat tubes.

    This is my dirty gravelroad racer. Bought it used last fall from a guy my size, but for me at 6 feet the Large size is a bit on the small side. Got a 120 mm stem and some cheap 44 cm Ritchey bars and with the stem flipped it is great for commuting and gravel roads. Mini-v's at the back was not great so I put on old XT cantilever, and with the brakebooster it works out OK. A little retro touch with the "suspension" saddle from the eighties.

    Oui. Looking to put a race wheelset together before the season starts ... probably Easton EA70 Xs from chainreactioncycles.com. *fingers crossed that the price drops even more*

    Here's my new one - I know white is bad but looks good for a bit - and will probably need knobbier tires on muddy courses - but these will do for now...

    SERIOUSLY DUDES! I'm just psyched because IMO I have the perfect setup. I have my water bottle mounted underneath so I can shoulder the bike up any steep cliffs I run into (I opted for the waterbottle cuz I don't want to wrestle with a camelbak while I charge through trails), I toss a powerbar and my cell in the saddle bag, then head to the trails and see how fast I can peddle down them without killing myself.

    how are those plastic pedals holding up? I'm always scared to keep using plastic pedals just cuz i feel like im gonna rip them off:S

    My SSCX from last season...

    IRO Rob Roy
    Ritchey WCS full carbon fork/
    Ritchey WCS Stem/Post/HS
    Truvativ SS MTN cranks
    Mavic Ksyrium Equipe Wheel w/ SS spacers
    Cane Creek Levers and Calipers
    WTB Dirt Drops

    Pics are from the Only Single Speed Race So far around here, "Cross My heart/superbowl of SS cross"

    Dont know if ill race this bike again this year... was way heavy... need new cranks i guess, and i wrecked the wheels while they were on my road bike. will post pics of my kelly soon.

    ALSO i like looking back at the early posts in this thread from years ago, and seeing how everyones bikes have changed... full aluminum bikes, with 36h wheels... then a big trend of bikes with disc brakes... then too everyone having race cross bikes, lots of carbon, tubies etc... its awesome.
    Looking for 58-60cm Fat City Slim chance (frame, complete whatever) any year.

    Here's my new to me Giant TCX-0 frame, built up with a random collection of spare parts:



    I made the chainguard by grinding down an old big ring. I may actually try to race this year. We'll see.

    And here's the latest build of my CrossCheck:



    Highlights are the Midge bars and a 38/42 x 17 dingle speed drivetrain.

    Maybe you've figured this out in the month since you posted this, but I'll reply anyway. I'm almost a two on the track, but a C racer in CX and a Cat 5 on the road. I don't take anything else seriously, but I do actually find it somewhat embarrassing.

    Yeah, Cynikal will probably give me crap about it, but I think I'll do the C race for the first event this fall. If I do well, maybe I'll do the B's afterward.

    I won't be giving you any crap. Why not try the Folsom race on the 12th as a C see if that works. It's an off series race so it'll be good practice. I'm doing SS.

    Thanks. By the way, love the Lemond. Is that a ENO hub?

    Yeah, it's an ENO. I'm happy with it so far but the only downside is that I have to adjust the rear brakes with every gearing change. When I build my dedicated SS CX bike in a couple of years it will have angled track ends.

    This is a Campag equipped 7005 frame bike built by a UK store that specializes in cross, Paul Milne. It makes a complete lie of the idea that aluminum bikes are harsh and buzzy.

    Dude I beat the hell out of this bike and most of the time my weight is only on the bars and peddles. They haven't let me down yet! And I hope they never do because I foresee massive pain if that would happen. haha

    The new ride...Can't imagine the bar tape lasting that long. Thinking some nice brown tape may be in my future.
