Planning to build with some spare parts from the garage. DA 7800 1x10 drivetrain, Answer mini SX BMX crank, Dati/Kinlin/CXray wheelset, TRP mini V brakes, crankbrothers pedals and seatpost, generic stem and bars. Should be ready in time for the Christmas week of CX in Belgium.

Haven't they heard about scato / scatlogy / scatologie before naming their brand?

Frameset arrived today. It feels a bit heavy. Unfortunately my scale is dead so I can't weigh it. I'm considering putting these on it...

Build list is going to look something like this:

D/A 7800 shifters & derailleurs (may go 1 x10)
BMX crankset converted for dual chainrings
Kinlin/Dati/Sapim wheelset
Crankbrothers seatpost and pedals
Generic stem
Giant 36cm short/shallow bars
KMC X10sl chain
TRP mini-v brakes

All parts I have in the parts box in the garage. Just need to buy a set of cables.

Build complete. Pictures to follow. I had to use a crappy bottom bracket which will be changed soon. Seatpost wound up being a Ti Pro Lite and I had to use a really old Ultegra front derailleur. I used a one-piece Extralite 42/28 chainring and a 12/28 cassette. I had to use white derailleur cables because the local shop didn't have any fully sealed cables in any other color. Also ended up using an Ultegra chain. I also added cross-top levers and stuck with the carbon fork that came with the frame.

I don't know... it's a Belgian brand with French being one of the country's official languages. It can't be any worse than wearing VERGE clothing....

Very cool! What led you to go with the direct pull brakes over standard cantis?

Honestly, I had them in the garage.

But, also, a bit easier for smaller hands to manage... closer to the rim, which has disadvantages, but better stopping power with a shorter pull of the lever.

I've said it before. Ted, you're a good dad. I'm up for adoption. Bet you don't have a 56 year old son. :wink: Yet.
