Cool Stinner Frameworks x Mudfoot x Coors Light cyclocross, disc

Hello! Here are a few photos of my Stinner cross bike I just built. Other than another icetech rotor to match the rear wheel, the build is final and won't be seeing any other upgrades. I'm really loving the stopping power disc brakes offer and the 5800 group (Ribble!) feels fantastic and tubeless is definitely the way to go. This is currently my only road bike so once I put slick tires on there I'm going to be a 'road bike with disc brakes guy'. Kinda bummed about that :/
Thanks for looking!

- Shimano 5800
- Stan's Iron Cross
- TRP Spyre
- I drank a lot of Coors Light during this build

Do you like the TRPs?

How much Coors Light? I did a 3-beer bike build, and then had that "I hope I tightened the headset properly" thought as I was bombing down a hill the next day.

Great looking bike. Properly dirty.

Beautiful. I'm jealous of your trail conditions this time of year.

Great looking bike, I am a big fan of the new 11-sp stuff, I think the 10s 105 felt like junk.

I like your flat/tool kit, what do you use for inflation though?

Thanks for the words, y'all!
Seriously loving the TRPs and the 105 group; so crispy! As far as inflation goes, I've got a hand pump mounted at the bottle cage.
My buddy came over and we split a twelve pack, smoked ciggies, and talked about long reach brake calipers \_(ツ)_/

I love it. The ciggies and the bike. So complimentary...

Nice ride, and I wouldn't be bummed about that at all. I've been doing that for a few years now. Most of my rides consist of road and some percentage of dirt. I like the ability to mix it up and head off-road on any ride if I choose. Club Roost Cross Terra tires have a meaty knob on the outer edge of the tire with a sort of reverse knobby in the center. It equals a pretty smooth, low rolling resistance ride on the road, but good bite in the dirt, and very good grip when cornering.

Enjoy both worlds when ever you want!

Riding CX bike on Road only makes you tougher
I raced few road races and crits on my CX bike and it worked just fine. Small adjustments on the handlebars and seat placement make a world of difference when it comes to bombing the corners.
