Well the Swisscross has been out and about at the start of the cross season.Unfortunately it has not been without misshap! A few weeks before the season start i found a crack in the crown of my 531 steel forks.Finally found some forks in a 1" flavour.They happen to be carbon though and ahead! Gone was my lovely Ritchey Forcelight quill stem and a more modern ahead stem fitted! It rides nicely,if maybe a bit more modern looking! Oh well it still has a period correct Ultegra groupset on it! Hope you like it!
Thanx Max
