    I've got thousands of kilometers on PD-R540s and really notice no performance difference between those and Dura Ace once I'm riding.

    Oh, you'll be fine with toe clips. Just stay at the back, please, and learn how to ride in the group. You might also sign up for some local Cat 5 training races if there are any, which will help you...

    Yep, many a race has been won on Eggbeaters. Last year at Cap Cross Classic, the only guys who could clip in with all the mud and frozen snow were guys with either Eggbeaters or Time ATAC. The SPD...

    And what, pray tell, would you like us to do for traction? I'd guess that you've never raced CX. Try it sometime at a variety of pressures and tell us how you did at 60 psi.

    You were supposed to be road-fitted; CX bikes often have a higher position.

    That's because you forgot to put on road tires and inflate them to more than 20 lbs.

    If you're fitted properly, you're not going to notice much of a difference. One big advantage that CX frames have for riders who follow Rule 9 is that they're significantly easier to clean after the...

    Yep, 46x13 is a great gear, and more than enough. You probably don't need that 12 for CX either.

    Yep, seven is more than enough. One of my juniors runs seven, and I *love* that I never have to adjust it or tweak it or do anything to it. It just works, every race, perfectly, dry or mud. Great...

    Those are just fine. Many guys run full file-treads (good ones) until it really gets to be peanut-butter mud. One of my juniors uses Clement LAS for nearly everything, and had no trouble in some...

    I've trained my kids how to paceline, so even on busy roads they've all been fine when they started longer rides at 7 or 8. As long as she's steady and straight, there's no problem.

    Not only that, but if it has good tire clearance, you can put on Tektro long-reach brakes, cyclocross tires, and go race your old steel frame.

    Well, a long sleeve baselayer will do it, as well as a clear windshell/rainjacket. Small gloves are available anywhere.

    I would just leave it as-is; are you really outspinning the 46-11? Can you learn to cleanly spin faster? It's nice to be able to do road training and then just swap in the 'cross wheels to race.
