Really good weight. Dig the clean white look. Trek's been on-point lately for me...

Picked up a ceramic speed BB86-GXP bottom bracket to keep things spinning smooth. Klaus @ CeramicSpeed is sending over a dust shield.

Most of us in New England run 42/18 or 19 gearing. Are your CX courses really technical?

Technical yes, really technical, maybe. 40x20 just seems to work the best for me on mixed terrain and courses without long, flat sections. I've tried 40x18 and 39x17, but am happy with 40x20 for racing 45-60 mins.

SSCX gearing discussions are interesting... I think it's highly dependent on the rider and the courses. a lot depends upon your skill versus power output. me, I have more of the latter than the former, so I need a decently high gear (versus others in the same race) to make up for any speed I'd scrubbed in a corner/obstacle. riders with more technical skill and less power can carry more speed through such things, but not spin up a big gear as easily. people with a lot of both are the ones winning

anyway... pretty sure I've said it here before but I LOVE this bike. still want one of my own, in fact...
