I built this in Jim Kish’s 2009 Ti Class. I wanted a light, durable cyclocross bike that would leave me fresher at the end of a cross race than my aluminum ‘cross bike. As pictured, the bike weighs just under 19 lbs with pedals, and rides like a dream.
There are some things I might change next time around, but I’m very pleased with it as a first effort and am looking forward to tackling the ‘cross scene this fall with my new creation. Overall, riding a bike built from scratch was a very rewarding experience.
