    Used frame, recently acquired, but new to me - Specialized S-Works CX - unusual for that frame as it has a Specialized C2 Carbon fork; built up with FSA MegaExo BB and SLK Carbon Cross Crank, 46-36, Dura-Ace Rear Derailleur, Ultegra Front, Paul Neo-Retro Canti on front, Touring canti on rear, Dura-Ace BarCons mounted on Kelly Take-Offs - puts shifters up on brake levers - lighter and simpler than STI's, but just as convenient. Ultegra hubs, Mavic Open-Pro rims, 32 spoke, cross 3.

    Nice frame you got there!

    The mountings for the shift levers clamp under your brake levers. I've used them for a couple of years on my tandem, so I can attest to how well they work. Kelly provides the mounts - you supply the shift levers and brake levers. I use Bar ends, but braze on type downtube shifters also work.

    - was browsing the aisle at the LBS last week, when i felt a tug on my leg... this bike jumped out of the lineup of Colnagos, Sevens, and IFs and bit me! i couldn't resist, so here's a pic of my new Serotta Fierte Cross:



    frame made in Saratoga Springs, NY:



    stem and seat post made in Macon, GA:





    - just came back from a 20-mile maiden voyage - somehow the bike was set up perfectly right from the shop with no fitting and no input from me at all! i guess the wrenches there are prescient?

    - i'm a happy camper!

    Cannondale Cyclocross RX800

    The Good: Light and fast, and extremely versatile; I've gone camping by putting a rack, panniers, a tent and sleeping bag on the back. Wheels are rock solid.

    The Bad: It was a MUCH softer ride when I rode with Spinergy SPOX, but was too concerned about wheel failure.

    The Ugly: Nothing . . . I love it! Seriously though, the brakes have no stopping power. Radius brakes suck.

    The bike has some interesting history. It was formerly raced pro by Alex Candelario (Big Shark/Cannondale). More here at my site.

    Frameset: Cannondale CAAD3 Aluminum
    Fork: Kinesis Crosslight Silver Aluminum
    Wheels: Mavic CXP33
    Spokes: double-butted/triple laced
    Hubs: Ultegra Silver
    Skewers: Q-Sticks
    Tires: Richey Speedmax Cross (700 x 32).
    Chainwheel: Dura-Ace double (39-46)
    Crank: 72.5 mm
    Cassette: 9-speed cassette (12-27)
    Front Derailleur: Shimano 105
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano Ultegra
    Shifters: Dura-Ace STI
    Saddle: Fizik Pave
    Seatpost: Forte
    Handlebars: Ritchey Pro Road
    Stem: Forte
    Brakeset: Radius
    Pedals: Shimano 600

    saddle: selle italia gel

    The guys at cyclocrossworld.com might be able to help with the Radius brakes.

    I may as well...




    Frame/fork: 2006 LeMond Poprad, 52cm.
    Headset: Cane Creek S6
    Stem: Salsa SUL 120mm, 17deg. I want to change this out for a 130mm Bontrager Race X Lite. Soon.
    Bars: Salsa Bell Lap, 42cm (I think. 40cm maybe.)
    Seatpost: Bontrager Race X Lite
    Saddle: WTB Somethingorother. This'll be replaced soon also. Maybe with a Fizik Arione.
    BB: Truvativ Giga Pipe. I don't like this, but it works.
    Cranks: FSA Gossamer Cross. AFAIK, this isn't made anymore.
    Rear Wheel: Bontrager Race. This'll get changed out for something a little lighter down the road.
    Front Wheel: American Classic / Velocity Aerohead, 28h. this belongs on my road bike, but it's doing dual-duty right now since this bike doesn't have a front wheel of it's own. Whatever I wind up getting will match what I replace the rear with.
    Brakes: Paul Neo-Retro
    Shifters: Shimano Ultegra
    Rear Der: Shimano Ultegra
    Front Der: Shimano 105
    Pedals: Time ATAC XS
    Cassette: Shimano Dura-Ace 12-25
    Tires: Kenda Kwick, 35mm
    Misc: Avid Rollamajig.

    Yes, I know the shifters look out of alignment. They are. Those photos were taken before the bike was fully built. If you look closely you can also see that the steerer is uncut.

    What do you think of the tires? I have Kenda Kwick 700x30 and haven't had problems so far (2 months) but I've read some bad reviews.

    If you are still trying to convert you mtb to a cyclocross bike:
    1st: If you just want downturned handle bars any bike shop can do that. You just need to buy a new handle bar and new shifters and pay for the labor.

    2nd: I you want to convert your wheels to 700c then you have to buy new wheels, find long brake arms (your current mtb brake arms won't work), as well as convert the handle bar and shifters
