Before it was subsequently road-ified.  :facepalm:

2011 Redline Conquest Pro 52cm. It's been fitted but still needs some tweaking. I need to add 1cm to the stem. The shift cables are a little long and need to be trimmed. It's in a fall commuting state right now making it easy to swap the CX wheels in and out. Once I think I'm done with CX I'll put fenders and the rack/pannier system back on. I will fit the lights as soon as I get the replacement Magicshine battery from geoman. I have less than $500 into this bike.

The maiden voyage commute was this morning. I can't get over how responsive this bike is for a CX bike. When I jump it just takes off. Now I know how flexy my Felt is. Super stiff, yet with the 25's it's a nice smooth ride even with 100# in the tires. The only aluminum bike I've ever owned was a 1st generation Klein Criterium. Super stiff, and rode like it was filled with cement. This is nothing like that at all. It is nice to be able to ride with shoes that I can actually walk in. There's plenty of float in the Eggbeaters for my splayed out right foot and touchy knees.

Never done CX before, so this will be my first year of it. I didn't want to throw down a bunch of $ for a dedicated CX bike, but I'm guessing I will after I try it :)


So, I took my Planet X Model B wheels and threw some CX rubber on them, and slapped 'em on my commuter bike, a 1990 ST400. It's a size too big for CX, but it'll let me get a taste of it just fine. Bike's setup with RSX 2x8 setup. Chainrings are 50/39 so I'm expecting to live on the 39-tooth. Cassette's a 11-28. Should do the trick. Just a hair over 24lbs. It's not light, but I don't care. The goal is to have fun.


Took it out last night for the first shakedown run. Some off-road, some on. Awesome fun.

Brand new, no pedals yet.


And w/ pedals and some mud on it:
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

Welcome back.

Thanks :)

I'm not flipping it though, not for a while. Plus all the reading I've down on cyclo-cross has suggested that you want your bars higher on your cross bike than you do on your roadbike.

I've started lowering the bars on my TT bike and the roadbike. LBS guys is making me do it in baby steps though.
