N Plus One -- by dwaine

Sunset silhouette of bicycle
Today is N+1! The race garage has a new adoption.

Cross season is here and with it comes a new addition to the race garage. This week I brought home a used cyclocross bike. The frameset is just right but the fit and some of the components are not. I'll need to marshal a number of parts to tune this machine into a winner. This is a call out to any Cyclopath who might want to clear out your unloved bike bits in exchange for some cash. I'll keep this list updated as my needs are met.


46mm wide handlebars
90 or 100mm stem with carbon friendly clamp and 10 or 17 degrees of rise
Campagnolo shifters 9/10/11 speed
Crank Brothers Eggbeater or Candy pedals
Lightweight saddle, 140 to 150 mm width


Lightweight 175mm road crankset
Dura Ace rear derailleur
Rebuildable lightweight hubs 24 front, 28 rear
Mountain bike shoes size 46
Crank Brothers cleats
Lightweight 27.2mm seat post

p.s. The image used above is an outtake from an Instagram photo session ( Expect the full reveal when the new bike is ready for prime time.
