Nashbar Cyclocross Shimergo

Cross bike is still very much a work in progress. I love the Shimergo shifting. First heard about it from Cyclocross Magazine:(link below) and wanted to try it out. Shifting is absolutely perfect. Only downside is 10-speed rather than 11. Love that I was able to remove the shift mechanism from the left shifter Purchased the Nashbar frame and fork on sale and have been happy with both. Started out with parts that I had lying around and have slowly upgraded things as I found deals.

Nice! I run 10s Shimergo setups on my road bikes, but I've been meaning to setup my CX bike with a less involved 8s or 9s Shimergo setup for a while, but it's already the end of the season. How's the CX/general riding scene in Chicago? I moved to Arizona from Gurnee I've been thinking about coming back to visit and maybe race either in the summer or the holidays next year or something.

Yea, I love the Shimergo. Shifts very well, easy to service; checks all the boxes really - especially for cross. Cross in Chicago is very, very well organized actually. I was only able to do one race this fall because i work most weekends, but there are races all around the immediate Chicago area and surrounding suburbs almost every weekend in the fall. They're really well attended and a great atmosphere. Definitely recommend trying to fit one in if you make it back.
