NTM: Zanconato Cross/go anywhere

Folks,

This was a bit of a rescue effort for me. Originally built for Mike himself, this frameset was originally painted by Keith Anderson. It was later sold and had rivnuts installed for a downtube water bottle cage.

I bought it from the third owner out of respect for Mike and because I have never had a true cross bike. For this spring, I will throw some fenders on it and make it my go anywhere ride.

I’m trying a set of (gasp) clinchers and some of those new swanky Pirelli 4S in the 28mm size. Coupled with the C17 Campagnolo rims, there is a whole lot of surface area going on.

I just finished the build tonight and can’t wait to take it for it’s maiden voyage in the rain tomorrow.

Build is Campagnolo Record 10 speed CT very last generation
Deda Newton bars
Deda Zero 100 Stem
Flite team edition flow
Record carbon post
Zonda c-17
Zanconato Racing bar tape
TRP Eurox Cantis

Thanks Mike for the back story!

It's perfect. I absolutely love the color and build. My cx bike is my favorite go-anywhere-do-it-all machine, and I had the sense to have him put one bottle boss on it back when I was racing. I wish I had him add two though, and fender mounts... and maybe a rack mounts too.. I just rebuilt mine with a record 10 RD and CX cranks which make it quite light!

Hawt! Let me know when you want to ride some sweet Loudoun gravel and I'll be there (along with my Zank 'cross bike).

Thanks guys...I can't get over how plump those new Pirelli 28s are on the C17 rims...I got to measure it with my calipers, but it has to be close to 30mm

Very nice Stephen. All it needs is a set of Eurus/Shamal or similar type of tubular wheels.

Very good Stephen. Another nice one; as we all know: Mike Z builds one hell of a bike. This is a classic; from a simpler time in bike land. I love it.

glad to see this one is getting some love! I had it for a short time and really enjoyed it, but just didn't ride it enough and needed to scale back somewhere...

anyway, it's an amazing and beautiful frame and Mike builds a hell of a bike. ride the snot out of it!

Such a cool bike!

I'd definitely throw some 32 or 35mm tires on there. If it's a go anywhere bike not sure 28mm tires make sense, but it looks like you're already planning on that based on your comment above. Not too familiar with the boutique tire brands but I LOVE the Schwalbe G-One Speed. On pavement they seriously roll almost as fast as my road tires, they grip very well on gravel (other than loose cornering). Compas makes some really nice stuff as well.

You probably knew all this...lots of people use 28s on the gravel of course, but if you can go fatter I would. That's why I LOVE my 47mm 650B Byway's on my gravel bike :-)
