Here is my Devinci Tosca SL1 from last year. I will potentially be swapping some components and upgrading the frame.

Somethings missing...

....dirt, mud, hell even some dust to show these cx bikes are actually ridden in the dirt.

My first time ever taking a bike off road. I just got the Cross-check a week prior and decided to bring it out to some of my favorite local hiking spots that's mostly double track through flat, sandy, FL upland forests. I didn't consider how badly flooded the area would be so I ended up pushing through short stretches of deep water.

This is also my first non fixie in the past 18 years. Def appreciated the gears through the soft sand and wet muck.

I posted this one a few months back. It had Gatorskins then, and now has Schwalbe CX Comps.
