Cyclocross, the only way I know how
So for the 2012 'cross season, I'm going deeper with the super light weight 29er hardtail. This time around, it's a Felt Nine Race aluminum bike with a carbon fork and mostly XTR 2x10 components, with a bit of Dura Ace thrown in. I'm doing Stan's Crest wheels with Geax Barro Race tires. All told, I'm about a pound and a half lighter this year than last, somewhere around 19 pounds total. That's lighter than plenty of the 'cross bikes, so there won't be any excuses, not that I need any excuses to lose badly.
