    My first CX build.........in 2010

    It all started out with me having these leftover handlebar tape



    I figured.....Hmmmmm....This would make a nice CX....

    So I Laced myselves a pair of wheels and glued on some decent rubber



    This should be a good start

    I've decided on the frame and also decided to paint the fork that same Team Liquigas apple green
    Then the frame-manufacture offered me a nice deal to paint it for me and put on original stickers

    With that settled, I could go for a nice seatpost and stem. They wher also gonna give me the colorcode
    so I could have the seatpost done as well. Now I need to find a place to purchase a 2009 Team Liquigas Fizik antares saddle

    It's Jagwire Racer kit - Merida green

    They have different team colors.
    I have'em in gold on my Racer I

    I bought'em locally, but I guess they can be had in any good online store

    Thanks for that! I am in the process of repainting my old Cannondale. It will be one of those greens with white. Now I don't have to search the color code. Easy-peasey.
