Building up my first cross bike and still pulling together the last couple of parts.
Van Dessel Holeshot Frame w/VD carbon fork
Ultegra SL Shifters/Derailleurs
TRP Euro X Brakes
And some random "will due for now" cranks, seatpost and saddle.
Stuck on two things.
Handlebars - Carbon? Bad idea? I can get a K-Wing from a trusted source for a price that makes aluminum less appealing, but is that a wise move for a cross bike.
Tires - I know there is a review thread, but anyone have any suggestions for clinchers for races in the Mid-Atlantic area?
