Columbus Life Slant Six CX Racer

The CX bike as I test it at the first race of the season.

I decided to make this bike for two particular reasons, the first being I had a hard time finding a stock size CX bike that fit my lanky frame.  Secondly I had been very disappointed with the performance of all the CX bikes I had ridden from the big manufactures, every one seemed to have a nasty fork shimmy and steered entirely to slow.

After reseaching many geometries and a little experimenting I ended up with a bike that preformed exactly the way I wanted.

Built up for the maiden voyage, tipping the scales at 19lbs. 

Not bad for a 60cm bike.
