My bike has a bit of crazy colour scheme but that is the way I like it Everytime something wears out or I fancy an upgrade I try to get it in matching colours.
Flanders 57c-c frame, chorus ergo's and front derrie, chorus-alu rearder., colorado brakes, pro stem and FSARD220 bar.
Changed since then:
- new Centaur rear derailleur
- new KMX X10sl chain
- new Veloce 13-26 cassette
- new tires: Continental Speedking 35mm
- and I cleaned it and made it dirty again, and cleaned it, and dirty again...
So new piccas on the way off the completed lowbudget-project!
edit: oh, weight: too much! but it's a winterbike, so i don't care!

I use my 'cross bike when the weather is junk, just cause it's a popcan (albeit scandium) and my nice road bike is custom steel. The components are just about ready to go in the trash – it's all '04 Tiagra off of a Redline Conquest that I used to own. I got this frame for a great price off a friend and I switched everything over. Eventually, this'll have the '06 Centaur off of my road bike, along with some nice tubular wheels for racing.
But for right now everything works perfectly on the bike and I don't feel too bad about not washing it off after a long road ride. I've been meaning to switch the tires out for slicks, but lately, I've just stuck a Ksyrium Elite on the front and kept the Ritchey Speedmax on the rear. I figure the extra resistance that that adds helps me get a better workout when going on a fast team ride.
