So, i've been on here for a while so i thought, that it finally was time to introduce myself and my lovely bikes!

I'm a men's junior-rider from Denmark and in the season 2013 i'll be racing for a team called Team Middelfart Junior ("Middelfart" must sound so funny in english). So it's some pretty serious racing i'm doing and it takes up a lot of my time.

Unlike many on this forum, my priority when choosing a bike is performance over weight...

Right now i only have one racing bike, as i've picked my former racing bike, a Ridley Orion, apart to sell it. In february i'll get a team bike, and hopefully also buy either a Cervelo or a Walser TT-bike. The bike i'm going to introduce you to, is my nearly brand-new winter/CX-bike - A Focus Mares AX 1.0.
So here's the specifications:

For the road:

Frame: Focus Cycle Cross Alloy triple butted - size 54
Fork: Mares Cyclocross Carbon
Seatpost: Focus Concept EX
Saddle: Focus Concept EX
Stem: FSA OS 115, 120 mm, -17*.
Bar: Focus Concept EX
Bartape: Prologo
Wheelset: Shimano R500
Tires: Schwalbe Durano Plus (With a cut up Ultremo R as extra layer between tube and tire)
Pedals: Shimano SPD 520
Brakes: Avid Shorty 6
Crank: FSA Omega, with Stronglight 7075 44/34 chainrings
Gear shifters: Shimano Ultegra grey
Front derailleur: Shimano Ultegra grey
Rear derailleur: Shimano Ultegra grey
Casette: Shimano Tiagra 12-28
Chain: Shimano 105
Cables: Jagwire Racing
Bottle cage: Bell
Mudguards: SKS Raceblade long (Planning to decorate the rear guard with stickers n' stuff... There's nothing better to cheer up the guy on your wheel)

Weight: 10.40 kg.

Changes for CX:

Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 7 CX
Tires: Schwalbe Racing Ralph
Casette: Shimano 105 12-27

No mudguards for CX.

Weight: 9.80 kg

Extras:

So today i had my first ride on the CX-setup. How brilliant!

Although it feels totally wrong to ride a roadbike in the forrest, it is absolutly amazing how it just gets through everything.
