Not my main CX bike, but I thought I would attach some pics of my newly built-up '08 Lemond Poprad Disc, in full gravel grinder mode.

Just the frame was stock. Here is the menagerie of franken-parts that I am currently running:

  • Kona Project 2 Rigid Fork 
  • Tower of spacers to get the bars to saddle height
  • Shimano 105 brifters
  • Shimano 105 standard triple crankset 53/39/30
  • Shimano Tiagra Triple Front Derailleur
  • Shimano SLX RD-M662 Rear Derailleur
  • Avid BB-7 Road disc brakes
  • SRAM PG-990 11-34 9-Speed Cassette
  • Salsa Woodchipper bars
  • Kenda REDLINE Kross Supreme Tires 700 X 35C
  • Velocity A23 rims w/ SRAM 9.0 Disc hubs

I love the True Temper OX Platinum frame, it rides so nicely for a clyde like me (6'-4" & 220 lbs). The overall build is not lightweight (mainly due the front fork and wheelset), although I haven't weighed it; just know it is pounds heavier than my Cannondale CAAD9 cyclocross bike. But this is the most fun bike I have for gravel, general urban riding, and light singletrack. It also makes for a cyclocross "pit" bike for the few races that I do per year.
