Is there any such thing as a semi-aero CX frame?

No, no, no,   none of the reverse-fork small-wheel faffing about the motorpacing bikes do.

Put about 50 miles on the bike so far just riding around the neighbourhood on various errands.

 

I have added bottle cages and mtb clipless pedals.

 

Also, I have adjusted saddle location (aft) and tilt (a bit down for now until it breaks in). Fliped the stem down and adjusted bars tilt up to be in line with the angle of the stem. This has made riding in the hoods and drops much more comfy.

 

Also have trued rear wheel and tensioned both front and rear wheel. The bike is starting to feel really good and I think it is ready for  a longer ride tomorrow.

It already has one. Its that 3/4" diameter X ~8" long cylinder on the down tube.

That's a mini.   I meant something like a big Silca or Zefal to fit on the pump peg you have on that head tube there.
