Look what I found

in my garage...perhaps one of the little gnomes dropped it off on his way over to gnomefest.
Swapping most of the parts from the road bike. Other parts from Rassy's. Still need to decide on what to do about a crankset. Mine is an Ultegra 39/53 with Octalink bottom bracket. I could just swap the big ring and run 39/46 or something similar. But for the cost of a ring and new bottom bracket I could be halfway to a cross specific crankset with a better bottom bracket.
I also need a 27.2 black seatpost (hopefully lightweight). Anyone have a post, crankset or front derailler?

I have an Ultgra 2 piece crankset 53/39 not sure that would help.

I have a short (250mm) setback thomson seat post in 27.2 if that would work.

C - I think that I'm set for awhile on the crankset. I'll be able to use my Ultegra 39/53 until I get the feel for the racing.

B - I'll measure to see if the 250mm will work, but it sounds good.
