wich one.
For now I have these on my list:
Colnago Scandium
Salsa Chili con Crosso
BMC Cross Machine
Specialized Tricross S-works

Í would be very happy if somebody would tell something good or bad about those frames.

It´s coming just for training, not racing and will be build up with Campy Chorus.

And I´m 184cm and 90kg......

How many km's are you planning to use it for?

If your planning to build a winter training rig and riding 10,000 km's per year or more durability would be the most important factor, otherwise it would come down to geometry and weight

Well, It´s winter here for about 4-5months so not so many kilometres per year.

But I dont mind if frame is stiff, light and durable....;)

C50 Cross? It would match your stable well....

Again, while not yet available, it will be soon - the new Yeti Cross is my pick for the hot frame this coming season.

I just plumped for a DeSalvo titanium 'cross... then I don't have to worry about durability if I use for winter miles. price was very reasonable for a full custom

Empella Bonfire SL

Great geometry, very stiff, and a great fork.

C50 would be nice...but, price is way too much.;)

What fork would be good in Salsa Chili Con Crosso?
Easton is not possible.
And should fork be straight?

Is Yeti available allready somewhere?

I hate to be the one to spread bad news, but I talked to Yeti over a month ago and all their frames for this year were already gone/ spoken for. As a company they are not known for building to projected demand so much as building to what fits their across model production capability. Hopefully things have changed somehow as I would love someone in my area to get one so I can check it out.

Of the frame you list, I have only ridden the Specialized. I really like the TriCross geometry/comfort more than the Empella and Redline bikes I tried.

I am selling a new Sibex 56cm ti cross frame in the Weight Weenies classifieds. I don't know if I'm allowed to post photos here, but PM me and I'll send more info and pics.

A friend of mine is racing a BMC with the EASTON-fork. He likes this bike. It is build up with Record and neutron. Realy good, there is nothing bad to say, the Geometrie suits him. The frame is not superlight but incredible stiff and well balanced. The paintjob is allready nice.

Take this one or one of the others. If you can afford it for training it is a comparison between Bugatti and Aston Martin. Go for the one how is ready with the colour of your girlfriends nails :lol:

Show us some pic´s if the bike is ready

Is Python good fork, really?

I found many topics where you were talking about it.

I think I´m going for Salsa frame, Python or Empella fork, Chorus group.
