rebuilt as a legit cross bike.
originally a pretty weird build, but it's actually a lot of fun. I still want to make this a lagit cross racer. Will swap out for drop bar w/ brifters. Also gotta get some cantis and switch out the cranks for a double, probably something around a 42x34. Might go with a single ring up front and possibly save money by buying one brifter. If I go with either a 39 or 42 should have plenty of gear range with that cassette.

Cool! I get to make an addition... the green CX tires cluster.

Are you planning on regular drops, or mustache? I have a flatbar Franken-CX build where I've been planning to swap bars/controls. I've been leaning in the mustache direction.


going to go with drops on this. I do like mustache bars, thought about putting them on my fixed gear actually.
