    here's my rig the day i built it up... since then, the stem angle has been turned down, i put my proper pedals on and i installed a carbon fork and a fsa crank.

    my muddy rear wheel on the rack after a race.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    That Strada looks great! My road bike is a Bianchi and I was very disappointed that the only Bianchi cyclocross frame on the European Market was a limited issue which was way overprized for its quality (1400 USD for the frame and fork, while they make a 950 USD frameset with the same tubeset). By now they've dropped the prize to 1150 USD but that's still way to much for what you get.

    BTW, that Axis isn't bad either

    Thanks, I bought the frameset for $120 from a guy who had it hanging in his garage and never built it up. It's only Reynolds 520, but the complete bike is still only about 22.5#.

    My replacement cyclox is:
    2004 Redline Conquest Pro Frame/fork
    Full Ultegra
    Bontrager stem
    Cane Creak Headset
    Salsa bars

    How long do you think that nice clean white cork will stay that color?!

    Here's mine as a before and after.

    I considered it a challenge to make this an ebay project bike, keeping most of the upgrades to deals I can get on ebay/craigslist, although I've had to make some exceptions.

    Rides great, been on a couple of singletracks already. Coming from MTB and road, still getting used to the geometry on tight singletracks. Very good roadhandling too, more so w/ road slicks. Korso wheels are holding up well.

    Here's the upgrades...
    New retail:
    Weyless Korso Aero rims (on sale at Supergo)
    2 tubes (lbs)
    bottle cage (nashbar)
    salmon kool stop pads (lbs, man they can stop the bike...)

    from old MTB:
    Cateye 2 computer
    Candy SL pedals (now changed to ebay Speedplay frogs for easier mounts/dismounts)

    ebay:
    Selle Marco Era USPS saddle - new
    Syncros seatpost - used
    Ritchey crossmax tires - new
    Bontrager stem - used

    wishlist:
    spooky canti's
    full ultegra drivetrain
    black open pros w/ black spokes and phil wood hubs
    speedplay frogs

    Here is my rig. Usually has 959 pedals on it rather than flat pedals. When I race it it normally wears tufo tubular clinchers as well.

    Your bike mechanic is wise beyond your wildest dreams.

    If you can't be good at one sport then you can be okay at three.

    Nice, were the road lever disc brakes hard to find? Where'd you find them?
    Were the disc allowed where you raced?

    Here's mine, hopefully,
    - shortly after competing in the 3 Peaks last year (hence 'survival bag' under saddle)


    - steel f&f
    - Campag 9 levers onto Shimano XT 8 block, via Campag 9 rear mech (works fine) 48/38 - 12/28 block (might be 11/28, not sure)
    - 105 hubs/mavic front & ambrosio rear rim (no particular reason)
    - 20 year old (at least) mafac cantilevers
    - Ritchey trailmax? tyres (rubber side-walls)
    - Time atac pedals

    Only thing missing from the pic is a co2 inflator which should be taped onto rear of seat-tube (used it during race & shoved in pocket after!)

    The disc brakes were easy to find, I ordered them through my local shop, Avid Road Ball Bearing disc brakes. I never got hassled at any races for having the discs, I think that rule only applies to international races.

    ok guys dont hate me for saying this can i make a Trek 820 into somthing like this or are these different frame. i like the curved handle bars because they are comfortable once you get up to speed.

    where do you guys buy your aftermarket parts for your bikes? and websites?
