Here is my 1995 Steelman CycloCross. I finally had the frame repainted last winter. Since I decided I was going to campaign it once again this year, as my primary race bike, I figured it deserved to be spruced up. I had dabbled in aluminum and carbon cx frames the last few years, but had never really warmed up to their rides. I love the feel of a well made steel frame, and this one certainly qualifies. Components are a mixture of a Campagnolo Record left brake lever, a Chorus ergo 10sp brake/shift lever, and a Centaur carbon rear derailleur. I run a single ring up front with a carbon chain guard and a third-eye chainwatcher to keep things running smoothly. Braking is handled by Paul's Neo-Retro and Touring canti's with Swiss Stop yellow king pads. Wheels were hand built by me with NineGs T50 carbon rims laced to American Classic hubs with double butted spokes. Shod with Tufo's Flexus tubulars they make an awesome race wheelset.

Enjoy, Steven
