My first CX build.........in 2010

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbround Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

My first CX build.........in 2010

It all started out with me having these leftover handlebar tape



I figured.....Hmmmmm....This would make a nice CX....

So I Laced myselves a pair of wheels and glued on some decent rubber



This should be a good start

Good bartape and wheels/tires is half the battle!

I've decided on the frame and also decided to paint the fork that same Team Liquigas apple green
Then the frame-manufacture offered me a nice deal to paint it for me and put on original stickers

With that settled, I could go for a nice seatpost and stem. They wher also gonna give me the colorcode
so I could have the seatpost done as well. Now I need to find a place to purchase a 2009 Team Liquigas Fizik antares saddle

It's Jagwire Racer kit - Merida green

They have different team colors.
I have'em in gold on my Racer I

I bought'em locally, but I guess they can be had in any good online store

Thanks for that! I am in the process of repainting my old Cannondale. It will be one of those greens with white. Now I don't have to search the color code. Easy-peasey.
