Thanks, good to know, I have ultegra and 105 on my road bikes and I think they are the best shifting drivetrains I’ve ever used. Wish mtb stuff could feel close.

Like a Phoenix from the ashes, the Domane rides again... well, not really, but my crash replacement frame arrived and I got it built up. Just need to hack the chest puncher off the steerer tube. Think I might swap the cover on the power meter back to the black/grey one since the red doesn't really match the red on the new frame as well as it did the old one.

Hell yeah man. I also finally got the warranty claim on my wheels sorted out, and got this weird monster built up. Just like yours, I still need to cut the fork (and remove the tubes, and a few other tiny things).

But in the mean time have some shitty photos.

2012 Scapin Style 1x Campy Easton 3t build
2012 Scapin Style 1x Campy Easton 3t build
2012 Scapin Style 1x Campy Easton 3t build
2012 Scapin Style 1x Campy Easton 3t build

Spec list:
Frame: 2012 Scapin Style 58cm (built by Cicli Barco). Steel TT, seatstays, dropouts, BB lug, and headtube. Carbon downtube, chainstays, ISP, and headtube inlay.
Fork: Mizuno FK-SL
Bar: Bontrager XXX VR-C 44cm
Stem: Bontrager something 90mm (pending the fit working out)
Tape: Silca Nastro Piloti bar tape
Wheels: Roval CLX32 w/ titanium bolt-on skewers
Tires: Conti GP5000TL
Brakes: Campagnolo Chorus Skeleton, dual pivot front, single pivot rear. I assume "skeleton" refers to what will happen to me if I actually point this bike down a hill.
Crankset: Easton EC90SL w/ 44t direct mount ring (giving a top end close to 54/11) and Enduro ceramic bearings
Derailleur: Campagnolo Record 11
Levers: Campagnolo Record 11, front shifting mechanism removed
Cassette: 3T Bailout, 9-32
Saddle: Old-ass Specialized Toupe
Other: Syncros Coupe Cage sanded free of logos, Specialized AirTool carbon minipump.

Initial thoughts: Works pretty much exactly how I want it to. The braking absolutely sucks, but I knew that would be the case going into it. If I take this to a purist Campy shop I'll get my ass beat. Being able to get through my entire gear range in either direction in 3 paddle strokes is a pretty great feeling.

Really nice, do the newer versions still have 40mm tyre clearance?

There is no "newer version". The Crux has been unchanged for the last few years. It will fit 38s but not nicely. 35s fit with about 6-7mm clearance on either side, which is perfect imo.

I've been out the CX game for a bit now, the last Crux I had was still on canti's and had Zertz inserts Redface

Trying to weigh up between something like a Crux/Super-X and then on the other side an Ibis Hakka, Aspero or Lauf Anywhere. I think most of the riding will be doable on 32-35mm but there's always that extra 1% where a 40mm tyre would be nice

LB AR46 rims on dt 350 j bends, with sapim d-light spokes

Looks good but you gotta ditch that reflector, kills the lines of the bike.

It’s just a light - was out early doors this morning for a ride, crazy how much shorter the days are getting already Frown

I tend to ride with a light even in the day, then drivers can't claim not to have seen you

I put small LED lights front and rear. I put them on flashing mode every time I ride. I notice bikers with lights better when I am driving thank bikers without lights.

Good call, lights are definitely better for getting noticed.

I'm waiting on the Cycliq taillight and headlight that have cameras built into them to arrive... pre-ordered them back when I wrecked with the car but they still haven't started shipping yet.
