Rate my Build

Thinking of a build? Actively planning a build? Built it already and think you could have done better?

Submit your build list to be mercilessly critiqued and rated on an absolutely arbitrary and as yet undefined scale of anyone's choosing.


I'll go first...

I have never been a huge Easton fan, but who cares

Otherwise, it sounds awesome!

Doesn't matter what I think. The purpose of that bicycle is to absolutely delight just 1 person in the entire world. You're the one. Yours is the only opinion that counts.

Was hoping for some advice, constructive criticism, or maybe even a joke to laugh at.

Oops! Should have figured that out.

So, are you going to build it?

This reads like a top shelf CX bike ready for racing. What's not to like about it? Only things you could nit pick are mostly personal preference items like saddle, bars and whether you need seatpost with setback. But you won't really know until you put it together and start the fitting process. If you have around $2300 (frameset) + $900 (wheels) + $1200 (groupset) + $45 (saddle) + $180 (bar) + $119 (stem) + $120 (post) + $85 (pedals) + $44 (tires) +$12 (tape) + $14 (barfly) = $5019, then go for it!

Yes I agree, I don't care about anyone's bikes but mine, mine are the best, mine are the coolest. This is all ego and arrogance but it gives me the the confidence and assurance we need to cycle safely and exercise strenuously.
