Thanks @Hulsroy @Dcls !
Tonight I'd like to write you about my CX.
This is my oldest project. I built it several ways since the day I bought it in 2014, from a lad I knew on the french pignonfixe.com.
The frame was sold with the Genesis fork and the Rigida wheels which belong to the Vitus now.
First version was also my first geared-bike, and the first time I had two bikes at the same time (I now own more than 10 ...).
Due to the "Shimano" writing in the seat stay I wanted to stick to the Japanese manufacturer to "look pro" lol. The best way to do so was of course by throwing on it the simple 105 8-speed I had on my drawer.
Apologies for the crappy picture.
After a few rides in the country side and some painful races, I quickly thought it deserved more than a heavy-duty setting.
I switched to a Ultegra parts and hopped on the 1x trend train, more because of my laziness regarding the front derailleur than because on any mechanical gain. It derailed more than expected until I found a much needed narrow-wide chainring.
Here on a nice afternoon ride with a Pan Bagnat and a bottle of Perrier in the front bag.
Despite the fact that everything on this bike was a mismatch, it all went well until I found a cool carbon fork.
Even if I really like what they do, I'm not a Fista-kind of man. I had to do a complete makeover. The breaking of the front shifter the very next day I installed the fork dug the last nail in that ugly blue paint's coffin.
What are your thoughts on the paint and on the groupset I should install ?
I am planning on a pale green and a Sram 1x groupset.
Thanks for reading
