Exactly as pictured. Orange, 60cm (i'm 6'4" tall), CX1, Enve, I hate money.

Now the waiting game. I'm at the bottom of the list (because employee purchase).

Damn dude. Makes my bike look almost poverty.

Just for racing or mostly adventures rides? I'm dumb, whats the standard gearing on the CX-1 as you'll get it?

Nothing you have/do is poverty-mode It was actually you that got me thinking about using a large-tire CX bike as a primary trail weapon.

I will likely use this for pure fun. Maybe do a couple random beer fests cx races up in boulder, but only in the slow categories. There are some really cool gravel-grinder type of trails that I can take on my way to and from work.

Stock gearing is 42t wtih 11-36.

So much fun to ride. Having big a pretty decent XC racer, dialing it back a notch on the cx bike is fun on single track. You can't bomb stuff at 30mph like before but still regularly embarrass guys on 6" trail bikes. On fire road you'll own anything.

42x36 isn't bad if you're cat 3-ish. If more cat 4-ish you might end up looking for a smaller chainring for the 15 minute + climbs. For short climbs though (<5 minutes), that gearing is fine for just about any fitness level.

Well, Its official. Building (welding) my first bike frame! Ordered the materials to build an SRAM equipped "super commuter" that has to be stylish and functional.

I went with aluminum for this frame. Its going to get polished and thats it for the finish. I want to be able to see whats happening to the frame, if there are any cracks that develop i dont want paint covering it up.


Final design: Seat in CAD drawing is not at the proper height LOL



Red circle is standover height. I made it nice and low being that its a "commuter bike". wearing jeans, etc so low standover is nice.

35mm seat tube and top tube, 42mm down tube, 50.6mm head tube for tapered fork, 30x19 oval chainstay, 19mm single taper seat stay, PF30 bottom bracket and standard road dropouts.

^^ good luck with the frame build. You might consider a gusset of some kind for the seat-tube above the top tube- looks like there would be significant leverage and fatigue happening at the ST/TT junction (even if the seat isn't going to be that high).

the seat in the picture has a 740mm long seat tube, I will only have it set at 570 to the seat rails more or less.

Here is the real height "render" hahaha.... makes it seem much more reasonable and I wont need that stack of shims on the under the stem after all LOL.

I plan to buy a proper CX bike next year. Are through-axles really worth it? I will definitely wait until road-bike hydro is better than it's current state.

Through axles are an incremental improvement. Not game changers like hydro discs.

I would get through-axles if you're going disc... I have disc with QR axles and the fork is especially flexy. If no disc- buy whatever.

Must be BMC, Cannondale, or maybe even a No22 depending on how rich I am on the right day.

Not a ginger, I do indeed have a soul. Above all I was wearing a zoot hat yesterday. Today is my Santa Cruz hat.

No idea where Bones restaurant is either.

Through axles : It's how God intended.

Might have to forgo enve wheels on Stigmata. Budget may not allow such ballerness. But damn they are a good deal. Might need to unload a bunch of stashed bike parts.

OEM wheels are always a stupid good deal. Impossible to replicate the deal outside of that. When I worked at GT Bicycles we would buy the original 26" rim brake Mavic Crossmax's for something like $400 when stripped off a new Zaskar Team that had been stripped by customer service (where I worked) to give the dealer the frame for a warranty or something. Those wheels were something like $1200 retail IIRC. doitttt

Bicycles racing is so hard, even in the slowest category. Why am I doing this? I would definitely if this is a reality of middle-age.

By which day will I disregard the concerns for downstairs neighbors and use the rollers?

Maybe monday, friday, sunday, and monday. Rest of the days look real nice, you can wear shorts and a t shirt and not get too sweaty.
