Cool. Lets us know how that saddle feels and how you like the bike after a few races.

I have seen a number of guys are using stripped saddles. Wonder how much do they weigh and how do they feel after some miles of riding (I own a stripped aspide myself and it hurts after ~30miles )

The stripped saddle wasn't done so on purpose. My buddy actually had it in his parts bin as the cover ripped off on him; I thought that it might work well on a cross bike as you're only on it 45-60 mins at a time. It's been perfectly comfy so far...no problems.

I figured something like that happened. My WTB cover is coming off. Once it's ruined I might try riding without it.

Nice bike, how much does that frame weight? Bottle and bottlecage on a cyclocrossbike for racing is so wrong,

Updated the original post with the upgrades that I've made over the last couple of years. I need to get a new weight and better pic on it.

I like the frame and actually have a second Crosso that I use as a pit/do everything bike, so I have no plans of getting a new frame anytime soon...maybe until I decide to jump to discs. I may just have the frames stripped and repainted this winter...decisions decisions.
