gio’s cross bike
cyclocross is undoubtedly an appealing practice. that’s why we couldn’t resist too long to this mermaid song and shortly after the beginning of the single speed cyclocross italian series we decided to build up the first casbah cyclocross frame.
here we have some technical specifications:
frame size 55×55 made of Columbus Cromor tubing
wheels: size 28 1/4 with novatec hubs on drc ktc 380 rims with vittoria cross mx pro tyres
crankset: sugino messenger 165mm
gear ratio: 38/18.
brakes: tektro cantilever
brake levers: miche
stem: extasy 100mm 6°
headset: tange 1 inch
frame is also suitable for front and rear derailleurs implementation, since we are pretty confident some of us will also participate to the geared series. Is amazing how attractive can be pedaling in the mud.
special thanks to gio for the amazing pictures and for the testing.
