    FINALLY found my new CX bike for the year!!!

    Finally, my search is over. Won a ridley crossbow frame (too poor for x-fire/night). Going to give Shimergo a try with campy hubbub conversion to 105 RD 11-28 cassette with 40t chainring. Velocity tubulars with some of the $35 vittoria tubulars. Jagwire race cable set (states that is campy compatible).

    Should be built up for around $900 USD. There is a site (realcyclist?) selling Tiagra model for 899, but I will be a bit lighter, with tubular wheelset. Should be a decent cx machine

    Why not use a Shiftmate from Jtek?

    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    yes, ebay.

    I am going to try the hubbub first because it is free, i am not opposed to Jtek, but seems like adding additional hardware (especially something that needs to spin a pulley, in a mud prone bike and position on the bike is only asking for trouble. I may just get campy spacers at that point

    That's a very minimalist build.

    well, the shifters and tubulars are still on the way from ribble... I didn't know that it was going to come with a seatpost, so anyone looking for a 31.6 seatpost, let me know
