    I hope you leave the bell on for racing. Great looking bike SaddleUp.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Anyone use a pair of Fulcrum 7's with 35's? I want to get a second wheelset so I don't have to keep swapping out tires and was wondering about these since they are real cheap online. It is either use the Fulcrums with my 25c slicks or my Maxxis 35's.

    Your bike has 2 of the things I've been thinking about all weekend, singlespeed and a charge spoon! How is that saddle?

    That Major One is nice. Looking at it gave me motivation and ideas to build my single speed 'cross bike.

    Just finished this build on Monday, I'm pretty happy with the bike so far. I've put about 50miles on it this week and think I'm gonna dump the Knobbies for something with less rolling resistance as I don't think I'm gonna do much offroading with this bike. I built it up as a Durable yet quick bike for riding around New Orleans (our streets are ROUGH!).

    Here's a rundown of the build
    TEKTRO CR720 BRAKES
    Mavic A319 w/Ultegra Hubs
    Shimano Ultegra SL 6650 Crankset
    SRAM Rival carbon Shifters
    Ultegra Chain CN-6600
    SRAM PG 1070 Cassette
    SRAM Force Front Derailleur
    SRAM Rival Rear Derailleur ('09)
    TEKTRO Front Cable Hanger
    FSA SL-280 Seat Post
    RaceFace Cadence Bars 46cm
    Profile Design Aris 130mm Stem
    Kenda Kwick Tires
    Recycled an old Nasbar Gel Seat I had laying around (It's comfy and I like it so I'm stickin' with it for now).

    The saddle is great. Definitely one of the most comfortable saddles I have used (and I have used Rolls, Ariones etc,.) Happily ride for 2 hours plus without even noticing it.

    Probably try a Knife soon as should be just as comfortable but a bit lighter and a smaller profile.

    [QUOTE=kerley;10919467]Kona Major One - just a change of bars/stem/post/seat and tires.

    Why did you shorten the stem and move your seat rearward? Aren't cyclocross bikes suppose to have more weight displacement towards the front? Also, the Kona already has a 72 degree seat tube and a 71 degree head tube, which less than most road bikes? Let me know why you set it up like that.

    Just built this for my wife.
    Scattante XRL Cross set up for road and possible light trail. Shimano 105 9sp group with Tiagra shifters.




    And this one is for my brother. Motobecane Fantom CX with basically Sora 8 speed.
    I really like this frame for the money too, but the XRL wins since I got it on sale for nearly the same as the FantomCX.
    This was more budget minded and has a neat mash up of parts.

    Here's my Redline Team scandium frame.
    Full Shimano Ultegra group.
    I have a set of Ultegra/Open Pro wheels for offroad use and I use this bike for commuting and now Saturday road rides as well (with a wheel swap).

    You'd be right if you had the seat and head tube angles correct. You have it the wrong way around though as the Major One has steeper head (73.5) and especially seat (74.5) than a lot of road bikes. This would be as you say to get the weight over the front. The seat is actually fairly forward on the rails and the short stem is because I have short torso with long legs.
    I have since changed to a straight Thomson post with the seat bang in the middle of the rail position markers if that makes you any happier :-)

    What I will say after riding the bike for a month is that it is superb. It handles brilliantly (and I really test the handling by running knobless tyres and riding on singletrack and compacted gravel so fast cornering is always fun!) and it climbs really well. But the surprise was how comfortable it is, it just seems to soak up the bumps which I really didn't expect with a stiff alu frame (albeit scandium)

    I absolutely love them. Even on the stock pads, just broken in, they stop very well. I got a set of dual compound kool stops that I've yet to install, but first impressions are positive. the 3 settings allowed me to completely get rid of that nasty mushy feeling of the old oryx cantis. Also, the fork mounted hanger got rid of the shudder.

    I really need a new digital camera. But the cross bike has some new parts this year. Added an Ultegra rear der. new 105 crank off of e-bay mated with a new Dura Ace 7900 bottom bracket. The frame/fork is a 1998 model and the rest of the bike has 32h Mavic MA3 rims with 14g spokes, Shimano 105 hubs, Ultegra 8 speed shifters, 12-28 SRAM cassette, Avid brakes with Shimano levers, Easton stem, Salsa bar, currently have Panaracer tires but I think I will put on some Kenda Small Block 8's when the cross racing starts. Yes that's a Rox Shox shock post and it takes the sting out of the remounts.
