    Cheap knicks usually have chamois that ends up like a wet, bunched up nappy,...

    Unless you have Frodo-like proportions, I'd be getting something bigger than a 58.

    You can get standard 110 bcd chainrings to fit damn, offset Campy cranks. It's a bit of mucking around, but can be done by filing down the tabs and making the bolt hole bigger.

    I ran 160 cranks on mine. You have to watch pedal strike, so shorter is better, particularly when cornering. I did it once and...

    About .99c

    Go CX specific. It'll only cost you the price of two chainrings and some labour. Fixed gear is for banging together totally inappropriate parts, not CX.

    Those black foam things belong on baby buggies and Strong V's were never meant for "longer rides". Get some bar tape and some road bike gloves.

    There is an argument that shorter is better for a fixed gear as it's less prone to pedal strike when cornering, and gives you better spin. I ride 160 on fixed and 170 on road bike.

    Apart from getting tyres to fit, there's the issue with weight, since you're carrying the bike a fair bit. I'm looking to buy an aluminium cross frame. Nice and light and will fit the tyres no probs.
