Lugged Cyclocross

here are some pictures of my new cyclocross frame. its made with Columbus Life oversized Tubing and Slant 6 lugs. Tommy did a great job on the paint. he asked if he could do a marble finish on the head tube, banner and seat tube, i usually let him do what he wants. i think it came out great.
I decided to run a good amount of carbon fiber parts on the bike, FSA carbon crankset and stem, Winwood carbon form, Modelo carbon bars and Campagnolo Record Carbon Ergoshifters. The shifters are paired up with an 8 speed Shimano drivetrain which is my new setup of choice. the pull of the Campagnolo 10 speed Ergoshifters  matches the throw of the Shimano 8 speed rear derailleur which is currently a long cage SLX, but if i switch over to running a 1x8 setup, then ill switch it to a 9 speed Saint which i have in the toolbox. Almost went with a carbon seat post but i stuck with the tried and true Thomson. the seat is a Selle San Marco Regal saddle which has been recovered by LEH Seats wheels are Velocity Dyads laced to a DT 240 in the rear and a Paul hub up front. all the stopping is done with the new Paul Mini Moto brakes.
