Feast your eyes on the Nashbar Carbon Fiber Cyclocross Frame and Fork - the absolute finest 'cross frameset to fly the Nashbar flag. When the chips are down and you want to ignite the 'cross course - or simply fly through the woods with the greatest of ease sans number pinned on your back - you'll most definitely want a carbon fiber steed to keep the weight to a minimum and the turbo boost set on maximum. The C10 ultra-high modulus carbon fiber frame plus full carbon monocoque fork are plenty light, plenty stiff and are a stealth black blank canvas awaiting the build of your dreams. We've dotted all the Is and crossed all the Ts so you can crush any 'cross course: this bad boy features internal cable routing for front and rear shift cables (the rear extends through the right chainstay) so mud, grime, and nastiness is kept at bay, full Di2/EPS compatibility for electronic shifting devotees, disc-only brake set-up, plus a massive bottom bracket shell ready to rock a BB86 bottom bracket. Buy it, build it, and blast over barriers to your heart's content. C10 ultra-high modulus carbon fiber weave construction is super stiff and super lightweight Full-carbon monocoque fork with tapered steerer tube increases front end stiffness Thick, solid fork legs increase front end rigidity for the rigors of cyclocross Internal shift cable routing along down tube (and continuing along chainstay for rear derailleur) for front/rear derailleurs Fully Di2/EPS compatible for those opting for electronic shifting BB86 bottom bracket shell keeps weight down and stiffness up Disc-only brake set-up is the future of cyclocross Plenty of mud clearance Gloss black finish over carbon weave is visually stunning

Pretty sharp bike. I'm sure its a Fuji Altimira CX. They are exactly the same as far as I can tell. Plus until they make a color darker than black you couldn't ask for better aesthetics.
I don't actually have this Nashbar frameset, what I do have is the 2013 Fuji Altamira CX 1.1 in red, which other than the paint job, looks identical to this Nashbar bike, so I thought I share some of my thoughts here.
PRO: Super stiff, fairly light, huge tire clearance, 46c front 42c rear, CON: no compliance at all, slow road handling. short front center, is a major issue in technical single tracks, front brake cable routing create unnecessary bends.
the short front center is only an issue when the road gets technical and twisty, not an issue at all at speed. 1234g frame weight for 54cm is decent, but is not as light as I thought it would be consider the 56cm test frame for Bikeradar.com was 1124g, and that was a Altamira CX 1.3 with lower grade of carbon (at 2013).
