Special Notes about bike: The bike is build up around an old hybrideframe which I got really cheap. I looked for older parts at the shop where I work. It rides really well, although I'm currently looking at a new "real" CX frame. The only thing I dislike about the frame is I can't shoulder the bike. Will post a pic asap.

Cheers,
Setzer

Special Notes about bike: The frame is one of two I bought from Jeremy Powers from an
ad in Roadbikereview.com; they were his frames for the 2000 Worlds in the Czech Republic,
which he rode to the top finish that year among U.S. juniors. One of my Squadra Coppi mates
is building up the other one to replace his Redline. Mine's got a fine mojo, so I'm sure he'll
be as pleased as I am!!
