Introducing the new winter trainer: The Lapierre HM X-Lite CX Francaise de Jeux Team Bike.  A cyclocross bike with road geometry makes for a true cross bike. With full fenders and fat tires this will serve as a super Chicago Winter / Spring trainer and transition to a bad-ass gravel race machine and finally back to a cross machine in the fall. It is pictured here looking comfortable in a Shackleton-esque Chicago Lakefront setting. A special thanks to the Saj and Michael from Get a Grip Cycles for sorting out the build.
