Well, I thought so, and it got me thinking that I might run my Lightweights instead of buying some new tubulars just for 'cross. How have they been?

Although I don't want to do it, how did you remove the logos? I know they look like they were painted by a 12-year-old with a bad stencil and an old bottle of Krylon, but they have a certain classic look to them.

Here's my crossbike, it probably weighs arround 8kgs, any comments?

builtlist
Frame: lapierre
Fork: lappiere
group: Shimano ultegra
brakes: Spooky aluminum
Cranks: Fsa gossamer with 36-46 TA rings
wheels: 4za T50
TUbes: Fmb SSC 32
Saddle: Selle Italia SLr
bars: ritchey Wcs
Seatpost: ritchey WCS
STem: ritchey WCS

I'm having a problem with the ritchey seatpost, when i ride over a bump or through a hole , the saddle jumps backwards, in a way that the nose of the saddle points into the air. i've totally cleaned the post already and put on some tacx paste but it doesn't help, im thinking about buying a new seatpost or do you guys know a solution for this problem? the seatpost is three years old.

hanoskator: Just change to a good seatpost, that clamp isn't good at all.

Interesting, so what about this guy's two bolt Ritchey carbon post?

FWIW, I use Ritchey WCS 1-Bolt 1 bolt posts on my duplicate CX bikes, and zero issues.

it's probably not the weight , i weigh 69kgs, that's pretty normal for a bike rider i guess, The seatpost is the two bolted aluminum version, I'm probably going to change the post, getting sick of having to stop every cross at the post to change bike or put the saddle horizontal again.

thanks for the replies.

my mistake, but its the same 'slider' type adjustment (looks akin to a single bolt design from the side...). In my experience, after these types slip a couple times they slip much easier.
