After a few weeks on my new ride, I guess I should get around to posting up the new bike that’ll be taking me through this year’s CycloCross season — AND all my road riding for the foreseeable future. Say hello to my Fisher Presidio!
OX True Temper Platinum frame – MADE IN USA!
SRAM Force Gruppo
Chris King Headset
Avid Ultimate Cantilever Brakes
Force Crank w/FSA Pro Road Rings 46/36
SRAM PG1050 12-25 cassette
I’m running Crank Bros Candy pedals this year again, might give Looks a try later though as money allows.
As far as controls & stuff that my body hits I’ll be running a newer-style Bontrager XXX Stem & Seatpost (OH NOEZ! CARBON AND CX!!!) with the new Bontrager Anatomic Race Lite handlebars. I’m sitting on a Bonty RXL Evoke Saddle – and still maintain that the Evokes are the most comfortable saddles that I’ve ever ridden.
Wheels are the fun bit. I’m planning on having 3 wheelsets ready to rock. My Classics will be running Vredestein Prematio tyres as CX Training/Pit Wheels. I am rebuilding my old Cane Creek Volos wheelset for commuting/road riding. As far as race … well, I have a special set of 50mm carbon tubular waiting for some Challenge Grifo tyres.
So what next? Time to ride. The road ahead is looking mighty fantastic, if I do say so myself! Cross season starts Oct 2nd for me, and it looks like I’ll be racing the majority of the series. PUMPED!!!
