Well finally finished my 1x9 Cross build, and converted my other cross bike to street duty (since I sold my road bike)for the most part and a back up for cross racing. Bought the Fuji cross pro frame cheap off ebay, threw on tiagra components I had laying around, and the rest were take offs from my other fuji cross bike. Only ended up needing to buy a set of wheels, tires, brakes and a left brake lever so I was able to keep the build fairly inexpensive. So far I am impressed with the 39 12-26 gearing but may try a 11-28 road cassette. I won a set of origin8 pro force brakes cheap off ebay new and they are definitely better than the orynx brakes I had on my other cross bike. Now I am itching for all the snow to melt so I can try it off road!
