Hi Guys,

as requested in the "show your Cross bikes" gallery: 8)

Buildlist:

Frame: TCX Advanced M/L (56)
Fork: Giant
Headset: FSA
seatpost clamp: Integrated into frame (Giant)
Seatpost: Giant D-Fuse post
Seat: Specialized Romin Pro on the pictures but meanwhile changed to Selle italia Flite Flow Kit Carbonio which saved around 60g and suits my bud better.
Stem: Giant 100mm
Bar: Syntace CDR Carbon 44cm
Bartape: Lizard skins 2.5mm
bottle cages and hardware: Arundel Mandible oil slick
Brakes: Shimano XT with icetech brakepads and XT hydraulic lines
Front derailleur: Shimano Di2 DuraAce 9070
Rear derailleur: Shimano Di2 DuraAce 9070
Crankset: Fulcrum RS Black
Bottom Bracket: Campagnolo ;)
Chainrings: Stronglight CT2 48/36
Chainring bolts: Fulcrum Alu
Chain: Shimano Ultegra
Shifters: Shimano R785
Cassette: Campagnolo Chorus ;) currecntly the only way to use 11 speed on tune disc hubs as far as I know. Works flawless!
Wheels: Tune King/Kong, Sapim CX Ray 28 front 32 aft, NoTubes Iron Cross rims, Schwalbe Racing Ralph, Stans sealant --> tubeless :)
Pedals: Speedplay Frog Stainless
Polar/garmin/computer mounts: raceware Direct Mount for Bryton Rider 60

Did not weight the setup above but with my second wheelset (king/kong, CX Ray 24/28, H+Son Archetype, Conti four season tires and conti inner tubes) the setup is approximately 100-250g heavier and came in at 7.85kg at the parktool scale at my LBS.

Planned upgrades: Thomson Cross Bars, Syntace Stem, XTR Brake Calipers, Tires with better mud shedding ability. Other than that I do not see any reason for changing anything.... its just a great fun to ride this beauty out in the woods, gravel and mud! :thumbup: :thumbup:

As stated by everyone else, nice build! But why did you clean your bike before taking the pictures? :wink:

Nice bike! Still debating whether to spend the extra dollars on the Di2 Hydro over CX1.

Tubeless is really great for CX purposes. However the Schwalbes are not specifically made for tubless. Thats because I have to run rather high pressures (~2.7 bars). I have some tubeless specific tires here that I will install tomorrow. Hope to be able to run pressures around 1.8 to 2.0 then....

Would not be a debate for me, the Shimano Hydro discs are really, really good! In my opinion better than the SRAM hydro bits and pieces...

The battery is in the seatpost. Fixed it by wrapping bartape around the battery...

Really nice and clean looking bike. I love the framelines and love the color.
