Lightweight Cyclocross Bike: Neal's Voodoo

Hi there,

I've been looking at your blog for a bit now after being introduced via a friend, and thought I'd share my first 'cross bike with you.

Frame: Voodoo Limba scandium 52cm
Fork: Generic carbon (looks a lot like a Winwood)
Headset: Crank Bros. Cobalt
Shifters: SRAM Rival
Crankset/BB: SRAM Rival with 38/46 rings
Derailleurs: SRAM Rival
Brakes: TRP EuroX Carbon Adjust
Stem: Thomson X2 Road
Bars: FSA K-Force carbon
Seatpost: FSA SL-K 27.2
Saddle: Selle Italia Flite TT
Pedals: Crank Bros. Eggbeater SL's
Rims: Taiwanese 58mm carbon tubular
Hubs: White Industries H2 (24 rear, 20 front)
Spokes: Sapim CX-Rays in black
Tires: NOS Clement 27mm tubulars
Chain: KMC X10SL with that lovely, and dorky, gold finish
Bar tape: Stella Azzurra chrome tape (heavy and a huge PITA)

All told weighs in at 17lbs 14oz, or just hovering around 8.1 kilos. Future replacements (the fork will be the first thing replaced) will definitely make it lighter. Thanks!
