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:
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.
