Cross is Always Coming! 2015 Raleigh RXS Belt-Drive SSCX

Picked this up from a friend and have some plans to make it a little lighter and have it as my main CX bike for next year. I'll keep my traitor in the pits if needed.

Size 56
i9 Wheels/Hubs (debadged)
Older SRAM RED carbon crank coming
Zipp Service Course Beyond Black Bar, Stem, Seat Post coming as well
Black/Pink Supacaz Tape
Fizik Arione Saddle
I'll also throw a fresh set of MXP's on when the season arrives with latex tubes

Love it. I really want belt drive but I'm not willing to commit to SS on the road. It would take one windy day along the coast to make me regret it.

Still waiting on the stem and seat post to round out the build. Picked up a pair of force cx1 hydro levers and post mount makes locally and covered up the red on the crankset with a little pink vinyl to keep the color theme going

I recently tried SS and it wasn't for me, but anything belt-drive is just sooo cool and sexy.

I am fascinated by them.

So awesome. The regular 68 width Red cranks fit fine? I have the newer version of the RXS and had to use the 73 (wide./mtn) width of the s900 to make it work.

the older 10sp red gxp cranks fit fine with the excentric BB that is on there. Except the SRAM and other TruVativ GXP-compatible cranks, including my new crank, step down on the non-drive end to a diameter of 22mm. I ordered a new sram GXP bottom bracket and will install it tonight. Silver, but oh well. and this tape:
