42T and 11-28. Should give me enough gears to climb and sprint. BBG is just the name of the chaingaurd. I might re-order the chainguard with my initials since it was only $8. Ultegra Left (not that it matters as it's just a brake lever) and 105 right (soon to be replaced with Ultegra). I need to weigh it just to satisfy my own curiosity but for now my guess is around 15lbs.

Thanks

Sure is. It's due to me slapping the wheel on and running out the door in my underwear to snap off a few pics before I lost all daylight. Don't worry, the wheel is plenty straight and the canti's could probably use a bit more adjustment.

No I there is a good inch of clearance there. just a combo of bad lighting and bad angles. There is however an issue with clearance at the chainstays for the chainring. The 42T ring was the largest I could go without rubbing the chainstays. They could have taken some notes from Redline when designing the chainstays. Other then that it has a great geometry and snappy feel to it.

...interestingly the dude who posted his blue in the 'love' thread just before yours also has his back wheel set crooked. Is this an epidemic among blue owners (or a sophisticated blue-owners' in-joke)???

I saw that too. I just assumed that since I had just thrown the wheels on for the first time a few seconds before the pics that I had set it in crooked. Maybe it's offset for some weird reason? I'll check tonight.

Yeah, that would be me. I was going to say something like "that's the style man" but no, the wheel was just crooked in the pics. It has been corrected. I do like this bike.

I honestly don't know how they ride. As horrible as it sounds I haven't had a chance to get out and ride it more then just up and down the street. And I think they made these one year and then renamed them to EC90. I don't think they changed them any.

But it makes you feel any better the wheels previous owner rode them to a US national championship.

I've heard that you need to run a compact crankset because of the chainstay clearance on those frames, how did you get a 42t inner ring? Did you use a triple bottom bracket?
No it's the double bottom bracket that I got with the DA crankset. The 42T ring just barely fits.

Seatpost works as good as it can be for cx. I barely sit down as it is. But in retrospect it's probably much softer ride then aluminum. Handlebars work ok. I'm probably going to swap them out for something more shallow. I like whatever bars are on the RL Conquest pro. FSA I think.
