I use this X-22 mostly as a roadie even though it is a cyclocross.
Wheels are Mavic OpenPro Ceramic with Chris King hubs. XTR cantilevers, CK headset, Ultegra Chainset. Love it!

Nice thing you've done with the cabling of the mechs. Much better routing of the Shimano cables. Smart.... :D

thanks chaps. i got it new from the bike shop. it was not custom so unsure how high the head tube extension is. eyeballing it is about 1cm FWIW. a higher headtube would be more comfortable over longer distances. am thinking of getting a higher rise stem for extended tours. yes, it is a painted wound-up fork. :-)

Yes 700c. If I remember correctly they were panaracers. They have been swapped to really skinny road tyres now. Unsure where the original tyres are ....

Lovely, like the colour too. I have a Gunnar Crosshairs, also made by Waterford precision cycles. The Gunnar is the 'budget' Waterford though.
