What Did You Get For Christmas?

I know Christmas is still 3 days away so just go along with my early celebrations.

I went to the LBS this morning because my wife wanted a new saddle - as it turns out she had taken my cross bike down the day before and got this done.

All the parts swapped off my old frame onto a new Crux!!! The running gear is 9 spd 105 so looks like I will be doing some upgrades.

Here is the bike before the new frame.

I am so stoked, I have the best wife ever.

BO Gear Backpack

Not purely cyclocross related but worth a mention is my new small backpack from Brisbane Outdoor Gear. I have been hassling Dave for one of these ever since he mentioned he was working on them. I prefer riding with a backpack as opposed to a messenger bag. I will mainly use this when commuting to work, and seeing as I try to carry as little as possible this bag will be perfect.


The bag has cleverly contoured shoulder straps that feel like they disappear when in a riding position. Inside the bag there are multiple pockets for separating out all your stuff. The standard bag has no padding in the back but the one I got has a custom pocket for adding high density foam. Dave can also add other custom pockets inside the bag as per your requirements.

Check out the BO Gear website for more cycling bags, tool rolls, foot straps and pouches then you will ever wear out.
