Lightweight Cyclocross Bike: Moshe's Serotta

All the bikes in this gallery are cool, but this one is very cool, take a look:

So here's my new rig, freshly built about 2 weeks ago. Honestly, I did not have "too many" weight restrictions in mind while building this, however they were always lingering around, like any other bike nerd. Also, when it came time to weigh in, I was pleased to see the results of 18 lbs. (flickering between a tenth), so I could contribute to this site without any scrutiny. Anyways, this is my second cross bike, first was an carbon/Al Alan, and the Serrota Legend just has no comparison. I hope I don't get bashed for have flats on bike, I come from a long history of mt. bike racing. I must say, I prefer it better.

Parts go as follow:

Frame: 56cm Serrota Legend Ti
Fork: Serrota steel
Headset: Chris King 1 1/8"
Stem: Titec Ti
Bar: Titec Ti flat
Brake Lever: NOS Kooka Rancha Canti
Grip: Titec Hellcat
Seat Post: Campy Record Ti
Seat: Selle Italia (striped)
Brakes: Paul Canti (f) Touring (r)
Crankset: Race Face turbine
Rear Derr: XT 9spd
Shift: XT 9 spd
Cass.: XT 9spd
Wheels: Mavic Ksyrium SL

The bike is rad. Between riding through the streets of San Francisco and crossing the bridge into Marin County; this bike performs phenomenally.
