'Tis the season. . .for CYCLOCROSS!!! And check out this awesome custom titanium Quiring CX bike that recently rolled out of Cycle to Fitness:
AWESOME!!!! It has the ability to run a full set of gears, but this ride is currently set up as a 1x10 with a SRAM Force group.
Love those SRAM hoods and matching bar tape in red! Also, check out the custom wheelset which is Velocity Deep V's laced up to American Classic hubs with DT Supercomp spokes. Did someone say "BOMBPROOF!"? Yeah, I did!
For you CX traditionalists, Tektro is still cranking out the TRP line of cross brakes to slow you down.
SRAM Force BB30 crankset set up as a single with a Salsa Crossguard bashguard and Salsa chainring. Still rockin' the N-Gear Jumpstop, because it works so gosh-darn well for pretty much everybody, except PB
Also, check out the bottom bracket welds. A Quiring is more than a bike, it is a thing of beauty!
These are the new Eggbeater 3's from Crank Bros., also in stock right now at Cycle to Fitness. For 2011, CB says that they've beefed up the bearings in the new Eggbeater 3's as well as the spings and wings for a more durable pedal. To back that up, the new "3" series pedals will carry a 5 year warranty. BOO-YA!!!
This bike also rolls on Panaracer CrossBlaster's. At 280 grams (Even occassionally a few grams LESS), these are the lightest CX tires on the market. We've also got them set up tubeless on these wheels with the new NoTubes CX conversion kit, and they sealed up with no problems. They are also a 700x31 tire so they fall under the new UCI regulations if that's your thing.
You have got to love Quiring's finishing work on his frames. Awesome paint combined with custom etching for a world class product.
When you're ready to get your custom fit dream bike, come to Cycle to Fitness to get your custom Quiring. We've built gobs of custom rides this year, and have plenty of experience sizing riders, choosing options, and getting your bike dialed in for you. Being a custom bike, it can be hard to get a "feel" for the bike before you order it up, and at Cycle to Fitness, we will make sure you get the bike that fits your needs. We always try to have 4 or 5 Quirings built up on the floor for you to see, feel, touch, and take for a spin.
When you're ready to pull the trigger on a new Q, remember that it takes about 10-12 weeks to get your frame built up, so plan ahead this winter for the spring. Also, if you're going to the Iceman this year, be sure to stop by and say "Hi" to Scott Quiring at his booth at the Iceman expo. I know he'll have something a little crazy up there, as well as some new little bits too, so stop by and check him out.
If you have any questions about this bike, or any custom Quirings, feel free to give Cycle to Fitness a call at 734-266-8203 to talk Quiring.
Buy from the shop that specializes in custom builds, and remember, People that ride shop at CYCLE TO FITNESS!
