    I paid for it last night so maybe it will be at my house when I get home. Sold the crosscheck frameset for near what I paid for the IRO, so I'm not even taking a big loss.



    Everything will transfer over with the exception of the derailleurs and gears. Traded my Force cranks with my dad for a new pair of Rival cranks(compact).



    Will start building her up when I get home from arkansas and get the frame.

    SS, knobbies, mud...
    This should reduce any 'purpose overlap' in the veggie stable.
    Will you commute on the Bianchi,and use the Ibis for sport?

    I don't do much commuting by bike now(had too tight of a schedule with school and work), but the commuting I do do is perfectly suited to ss.

    Nice frame! SSCX bikes are so sexy, especially up here in the Northwest. Excited to see how this turns out.

    I may steal that ritchey from my dad that I bought from Parker in the meantime. He isn't using it until he gets a cross frame, and even then any frame he decides on may come with its own fork.

    Yeah, all the mechanics at my shop hate that fork too. It had mad shudder when braking, but if you're riding it SS and using front/rear evenly it should be fine. I'm getting one for my SSCX build because the ec90x has fender mounts which is rad!
