Are you sure you couldn't find a few other forums to post this stuff in? :roll: You've only managed three so far.

Looks good in black.

A few nice upgrades from my 2011 CX4.

Thanks guys!! I'm winging it most of the time!
Just took it for another ride and I LOVE how you can take it to places you'd never take a roadie or a regular flat bar.
Getting the hang of shifting and braking into dirt corners at the same time. Might keep the cross tires on for a bit longer.....

As stated above I have the CX4 which is pretty much the same except it has 105 and an alloy fork.

Currently has 11600kms on it and still going strong. I am on my 3rd rear wheel and have replaced the original brakes, bb5s with BB7s.

I also replaced the FSA cranks with some Shimano CX50 ones.

It get's ridden on all sorts of terrain and I love it.
