Fanmail: CX Bike Owner March 02 2013

So last month I decided (I was talked into) building up a CX bike. Not for racing, but for some fun mixed-terrain kind of rides. My co-worker and friend, Patrick Keller connected me with the folks at Ritchey Bikes, and not long after, I had this sexy thing in the garage bike stand. I bought a used Jamis CX just for the components and now that bike will be built for my other co-worker, Erik Homsapaya. Needless to say, I have some pretty cool colleagues. Thanks to Mike Ahrens for the sweet deal on the wheels!

By the way, it rides like a dream!
