Yes? I've seen crossbikes with Schmolke (not the extralight version - just the normal one). But I am very pleased with my upgrade to F99/WCS alu 26.0, cut off some centimeters (just like I did with the Ritchey pro in the pics) and its sub 200.

you can use schmolke handlebars on a cx bike

i asked schmolke if he can build a handlebar for cx
he said now problem : asked how i use it, where i grab most of the time ,if you use the downpostion of a handlebar he said,that he has to use more layers

i told him i never use the downposition, so he could built a lightweight handlebar

if you want to buy one ,tell him what you want to use it for

Thanks Simon, I know these tires are below standards. The reason is "between my ears". They are my first tubes ever (used clinchers all my life) and since I'm scared of punctures at awkward moments (I use the bike for 90 km rides on gravel and sand roads) I decided to go for Tufo with sealant. Flexus was not available when I bought them.

Actually I don't. They both have the same head tube and top tube length, it's just that the seat tube is 2 cm shorter on the anodized bike.

Thanks Jeremy! Regarding your pm question: you're right after 13 years on a Flite I did not get used to the SLR so I returned to Flite - which I stripped.
