    Got me one of these, but they are very rare now, new 2011 version out in august/september.

    This is the Ultegra version;

    On my phone so can’t post photo but i have a Focus Mares AX2 and love it. Mostly use it for singletrack and general exploration. So much fun and more versatile than I expected. Brakes are rubbish though if you’re used to discs.

    GaryL, that looks lovely! Any good as a do-it-all bike, ie. Off-road explorer, commuter and light tourer (back panniers only) as well as possibly a cross racer?!
    Was starting to think next bike would be a croix de fer, but my head is being turned…

    I’d say its strength is its offroad manners. I largely ride it instead of an MTB if I want to link up some more spreadout/less ridden trails.

    Not fitted a rack though but have run it with slicks and some SKS race blades – super smooth ride and the slack angles make it very stable (some would say slow to turn) so I’d wager it would be great with the full rack and pannier setup. Racer? Bit heavy with discs – 23.5lb as above but the Cotic wheels alone are 2.2kg with skewers. 23c tyres bring it down to 21.5. I reckon with new wheels 21.5lb with cross tyres and discs is perfectly doable without spending big money – I think sub 20lb is going to cost you somewhat.

    The Croix de Fer is very good, the X is just a bit more special and lighter (tested both for about 6 months)

    Cheers Gary, that was very helpful. Racing would be more ‘give it a go’ than competitive…

    Not the best angle. Droessiger frame. Think the frame cost about €180 new, including paint+decals (from a pretty sizable range).

    teetosugars, really like your Guerciotti. Did you build it your self or was it done by Planet X?

    Tony, not looking to get one until about October time otherwise I would be very interested.

    To be honest, I bought the frame from them, bought the 105 from Ribble in their sale, and then took it all along to my LBS ( Royles in Wilmslow) and handed it over to them..

    Here’s mine – glad I got one with the second set of brake levers on the flat part of the bar. Helps my confidence hugely off-road.

    I do like the look of that Cotic X above. Would make a nice set with my Soul.

    Lovely Cotic X there!

    Does anybody know the weight of the fork? Would have thought that there was some potential weight loss there by going carbon?

    Paul78 – What wheels are those?

    GaryLake

    Don’t know the fork weight but I’ve got the Carbon one on there.

    OK, thanks, the Cotic website states a steel fork is provided.

    Also, I’ve hopefully got an FSA SL-K crankset with proper CX ratios coming so reckon there could be a good half pound difference between it and 105.

    Last years race bike, now demoted to road riding and turbo training duties.

    That’s mine. Only changes are the addition of some mud. Only way I’d ever replace it is if they did a version with a disk mount, other than that, I love it.

    Somewhere near belgium, but might be france as I have onions on my bars

    Like that Yeti. What’s with the top tube shape? Functional or aesthetic?

    Ta, It’s to allow more comfortable shouldering apparently. It’s of great help at the 3 styles and kissing gates I encounter on my way to work!

    Sorry about the link, not about to try to stick these in Flickr:

    This is my Uncle John before I bought it (I paid “250 a couple of weeks ago..!). Yet to ride it (needs a saddle, and I need the time). Some changes will be needed before the cross season (new bars and stem change tyres).

    EDIT: this is my SS cross bike. Based on an old Holdsworth road frame. For sale if anyone’s interested…

    Mail me and we’ll sort something out. It’s a 52cm, btw, but a nice long 54.5 toptube.
