Here's a preview of the platform that I'm starting off with.
Another Colnago in the stable.

Image

Likely with the following since I have parts lying around and they are pretty cheap to replace:
Ultegra 6700 shifters, front derailler, rear derailleur
Brakes: FSA K-Force
Crankset: undecided, but I like the compact ratio

Additional pictures: https://imageshack.com/a/tMeq/1

Will provide pictures of the bike when build is complete.

A very excellent platform for a build. Looking forward to the final bike. What wheels will go on the bike?

I think I'll pass, but the boss has given me approval to build a new bike. Hmm... I have her old Ultegra 6700 groupset lying around. Oh, and a Bontrager Race handlebar, and Bontrager SSR wheels, and Shimano cables... oh boy...

How lightweight should a CX be? What's the lightest so far?

Playing with the numbers I could drop an easy 950 grams off mine changing components over to lighter versions and that is without tuning.

I've built up my Redline amd turned out to be 16.92lbs. :( that's with Omni seatpost. Will change to another alloy seatpost to see if it could be lighter.

I can't believe how light some of your cx builds are!

I have a 53cm Ritchey Swiss Cross that I am scheduling a 1x10 Sram build for this season and moving to Avid Shorty Ultimates (which I freaking love). It's currently around 9kg I believe (steel is real)

My other cross bike is a 52cm Specialized Crux Force build with sworks cranks, shorty ultimates, and some heavy clinchers on Specialized Terras. I think that one is around 7.7kg

I'll try to post up a parts list, and pictures :beerchug:

Have never even thought of weighing my cx bike. One reason I love having a cross bike, aside from being able to hit the woods or trails if I can only ride at high auto traffic times, is having one bike I don't mind getting dirty, crashing, and not having top-notch parts on. It's still a great bike, I just don't treat it the same as my road bikes.

Oh well, nothing wrong with having beautiful, light cx bikes too. I just like having one in the bunch that I'm okay leaving muddy and cruddy after a ride. But only for a day:)
