Last week I build myself a new toy for upcomming winterseason. It's not complete ready, there are still some parts to replace and drop some weight but it is for sure a lightweight crossbike at the moment.

It feels really quick, great handling and it's awesome for shouldering.

Updates coming weeks:
KMC Sl chain,
New wolftooth chainring
ALU jockey wheels
Sram red cassette
Alligator cableset
Cervelo expander

I allways want a really light crossbike but without compromise because it will be used in races a lot. So normal XTR pedals because of the mudclearance and none extreme lightweight parts. The weight now is 6.3kg, hope to save another 1/200grams the coming weeks.

Sweet build. I'm hoping to build up a CruX soon with discs and CX1 HydroR. Whats the story with the tape?

Nice! Also keen to know about the tape as well as the tuning to the Toupe.
