See, when you race for Richard Sachs, you get a racing bike, not a training bike, so sometimes, you’ve gotta make due. Here’s one of Dan Chabanov‘s new House Industries-designed Sachs cross bikes in “training” mode.

    That awesome set up is Brittlee’s creation!!

      I’ve seen that done on track bikes for years!

      • chris campbell

        Yeah, I didn’t phrase it right. I meant to say that was her bike with the set up!

  • dan chabanov

    Thanks for putting this up. I just uploaded a few more detail shots of my bike to Flickr.

    I have this picture of the rider starting with 2 zip ties and then adding another in anger every time (s)he ejected a bottle. Just a funny image this brings up in my head.

    Yeah, cuz dem bosses weigh soooo much. RS got a little carried away there ATMO.

      it’s not about them weighing anything, it’s less shit to catch yourself on when portaging the bike.

        Also less work for him when he’s building all the team bikes.

    wouldn’t a proper CX training cage be holding a beer?

    I guess for the price of one of these frames, someone would expect a more elegant solution, like this one: http://vincero-design.com/products/advantages/
    And, if for Sven Nys is fine to carry his bike with bottle bosses…

    … this pic of Richard’s own race bike with similar set up. (Captian and crew of Fram eating from the same enamel bowls)
