After watching cyclocross in my area I find that the bikes are just as complex as some of the newer mountain bikes out there. What happened to simplicity? Dura Ace and front suspension? What gives? I would like to build up a planet x with a front single gear and yeah sure, nine speed in the back. I still have some old xt canti's, and some old bars, and various other parts. After reading about the planet x, it seems that every one loves the bike. How about for a bigger rider, say 215lbs? Any flex at the bb?
