Thought it might be nice to see what people are running now. Just got my Orbea back from its SRAM-ification. Wheels are completely un-exciting Ultegra/Open Pro's right now for training/offseason.

Bike is an Orbea custom cross, Alpha Q carbon cross fork, SRAM Red, Pauls Neo Retros, FSA crank, BB, front derailler, seatpost, Al bar, Ritchey WCS Al stem, KMC10SL chain, Specialized Toupe saddle.

At 421 posts, the last thread (the second of its kind no less) was getting a bit unwieldy. So a third age of the "post your cross bike" thread is here. Prolific posters of the cross forum, I salute you! Now show me shiny picture of your cross bike already.

:cool:

From early last season. . .

Eventually the Thomson layback went on the Soma, a Thomson 0 degree went on the Scattante and the Soma got a twin DA/GL330 wheelset with Grifo 34s (better clearance) and a polished Kinesis Al fork.

Also in the household. . .

I've posted this CrossCheck in its previous SS incarnation. Sorry about the mess in the background. It was geared full-time last season. It also had a color-matched steel fork for a while. . .

I saw Sycip at NAHBS in Indy and liked the quality.

My Bonfire. Changed from the last time I posted it in that I now run a 1x10, have Tektro cr720's up front and Oryx in the back (I may ditch the rear and go with another 720-not thrilled with the Oryx), Ritchy WCS stem and Bar and a differnt seat. I would like to go with yet another seat (white) this yr as I'll be running white Challenge XS tires a lot of the time plus new wheels. That should be it for this yr.

That fork looks a bit wonky...or is it just me?

Edit: 'Had'...I get stuff.

scattante cross...

here's my new rain trainer (built just in time to miss all the rain). I'm pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. The only "new money" spent was on the frame ($150. thanks craigslist.) H2O cages, fenders, brake shoes and a f.der adapter. Prolly $250 total.

Everything else was in parts boxes or begged/stolen from friends garages. tri-aligns, bar end shifters, an Ned autographed bottle from 1998 LOL!. I may have to get a new saddle. 30 minutes into a 4 hour ride and I remembered why the aspide was sitting on a shelf.:mad2:

I was even surprised by the weight. 20.85lbs as shown (that's a powertap rear and wire bead 700x28 Gatorskins....not svelte). not too shabby for a cross commuter.

...and yes, I admit it's a bit pimpy w/ the red+white accents, but it's down right bland relative to my others.
