    I agree but the drop is less severe that the photo shows. I'm thinking this bike may get risers or something like cinelli priest bars. This is more of what I'm aiming for.

    like a 1x8? i have one and enjoy it immensely. not for cyclocross but yah....
    im less familiar with building geared bikes but so far front derailleurs seem to be a real b!tch sometimes despite dealing with less gears than the rear.

    eight speed is definitely the boss for reliability.

    i admit i had a dip in enthusiasm for after a pair of chain drops despite having a chain keeper. i realized that the serrated washer i didnt use was pretty important. now i am again drop free. long live double rings.

    Spoke card is from an alleycat I won, no posing here! And before I get the 'that's lame that you raced a geared bike' comments, the fastest delivery / messenger people around here are on geared bikes since we have to go to the hospitals a lot, which are all up rather steep hills from downtown.

    I don't usually use the bianchi for work though, that's what this is for:



    Also just put this together because 'winter is coming' and I need something unstoppable:

    i reckon a large majority of folks have some kind of chain keeper even if they are diligent with preventative action.

    I've raced cross for 4 years and never dropped a chain. I would focus on putting the bike down before remount. I usually see guys dropping their chains after the barriers.

    on my 1x7 i get chain drops mostly when i hit a bump or try to take a jump a little too hard. i'm learning to keep tension on the chain (ie keep pedaling) when hitting obstacles.. it seems to keep the chain on more. going offroad with any serious terrain would be a disaster though

    Since we're talking about this, I'll ask a question that's been on my mind about 1x drivetrains. Do you have to do a lot of tweaking to get chain line right? Also, are bashguards required to prevent chain drop?

    I've done it on several bikes and I've found that if you are staying on the road, you probably can get away with out a guard. But my favorite setup is a outer guard and a dog fang on the inside.

    yes, homebrew thought my bike was an Ifab at first then there was a discrepancy about if the indy would be better with campy and I joked that mine was an indy and had campy but it doesn't so homebrew said except for the shimano crank but my bike has sram so I said sram is the campy of all that is not campy. one sentence can be long.
