Pictures of my cyclocross bike...

Finally I managed to get some scans of the pictures of my cx bike.
I built this bike around a steel Pinarello CX frame that i found 2 years ago in a warehouse in New York. The frame and fork were NOS and the warehouse fokls didn't know what to do with it and sold it to me dirt cheap. I belive that was the last run of steel CX frames by Pinarello.
The rest of the bike is pretty much Campagnolo Centaur group with Specialities TA chain rings, Shimano pedals (my old trusty SPD 747) and brake pads (vintage NOS XTRs), Frog Leggs brakes, Cinelly Grammo Ti stem, Selle Flite saddle, Ritchey seat post and cable hangers, Mavic 517 wheels and Hutchinson tires.
The frame size is 60 cm and I since I am 6'3" I thought it'd be a bit of tight fit. Well it turned out that this frame is more comfortable than my road bike. It rides beautifully.
Steel fork is a bit flexy but it works well in mud and on off road.
Le'me know what you think.
Thnx
