    +2, it looks great. Spendy little dip into the Hot or Not thread. That went pretty quickly from 'the cables kinda bug me' to 'I'm going full 6800'.

    Not exactly, I want a cyclocross bike too and figured all the old parts from this one will mean I just need to find a decent frame so it works out. But yeah

    Had to be more than that...didn't come over from the UK that quickly. Great for the economy though.

    People are crazy... You might want new rings for the crank too, cause CX gears and such.

    And for me, SO close to being hot. Longer stem + slammed would be nice, but not everyone can do that. So at least cut the stack above the stem.

    Going to ride it like this for a while to make sure it fits me right before I go and chop the thing. But it will happen.


    As for the eventual cross frame, I think a 105 compact will be fine on flat converted rail trails of gravel, so maybe not exactly cross but you get what I mean.

    By the way, how do you post pics so they are bigger in your posts, I can't seem to get it to work even though I can in other forums.

    You mean by lowering the bars? I test rode it and it feels fine so far, not uncomfortable at all. Longer rides will tell though. We'll see.

    He was looking for suggestions in the first place. After a collection of thoughts, he went and upgraded the parts he wanted to. I doubt it was because of peer pressure within the Hot R not, but it may have influenced his purchase. Regardless, nice upgrades.

    I think it's great when people actually do it then post, as opposed to posting threads about it for months before we see anything.

    You should get a geekhouse cyclocross frame...c'mon, you know you want to!



    Also, for big photos...just host them on another site like imgur or something, then copy the jpg url, click the img icon in the reply section, paste the url, and uncheck the "retrieve remote file" option and it should post the larger photo.
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!

    I've taken too much advice from you guys today, that's where I'm going to draw the line, unless you buy me these shorts to go with it...
