New CX, Rain, Winter, Ice, Off Road Bike

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Totally sweet. I'm looking at getting a do-it-all bike, and that would be nice. Very nice.

Studded tires if ice is in your future. Pick em up soon as they'll be on clear-out.

Only one thing I'd change... a white saddle on a cross bike?

I agree, thinking of changing to a black saddle.

All complete at around $2,000 for what is shown in the pictures. I already had the SRAM Red groupo, DA cassette, stem, bars, saddle, Polar CS600 w power, and training wheels. Plan to use my existing Zipp 404 tubi's for races.

Nice ride. Just installed some TRP brakes myself (not the uber sexy one's though) and am loving them.

Gorgeous bike. Got any wider pics of the garage? That floor is awesome. I'm working on mine now and am looking for ideas.

Is that just a standard or compact crank? If you plan on racing cross, your going to want to pick up a true cross crank. With that set up, you will never get into the big ring. Super nice bike though.
