Update on my first cross bikeFender
Sep 17, 2003 8:16 AM
So last week I posted I was getting a cross bike and had some questions on the build. We'll here's a little update.

I bought the SOMA double cross in cobalt blue (bellisima). As for parts I have the following:

- Cook bros crank (need chain rings)
- Speedplay frog pedals
- Sram PC 69 chain
- Ultegra 12-23 cassette
- XTR rear derailleur
- Deore XT front derailleur
- Flite Saddle
- Rock Shox suspension Seat post (might switch to a carbon post I have laying around)
- ITM Milenium stem
- Dia-Comp Cantilevers

My next purchases are going to be a set of wheels, most likely a set of mavic MA3 with XT hubs and double butted spokes. For shifters I plan on 105 or possibly handing down my ultegras from my road bike and upgrading to DA. Bottom bracket still not sure, but it won't be a shimano BB.
