I just bought a Crosshairs and am planning on using it as my road and cross bike for now. A little perplexed :? as to the gearing I want to set up on it.
Crank: I am thinking of a road double (39/53), road compact(34/50), or a cross set up 36-42/44-48

Cassette: Somewhere between 8-10 spd 11-28

Rear deraileur: Unsure.

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Hey I just set up my crosshairs (love it by the way) for cross. I went with a 38/46 in the front and I think that I'm overgeared, a 42 would be better since I never use that front big ring during a race.

In the back I've got a 12-23 a 12-25 and a 13-26 with the 13-26 being my favorite for racing.

Otherwise its basically Ultegra 9 all around. I've heard of some people having trouble with 10 speed for racing but if you aren't racing that would work too.

Cross racing is pretty hard on components so I wouln't spend any extra money for Dura Ace.
