Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Show us your cross bike...

why both of them got it wrong is a mystery. top of top tube routing keeps the cables less dirty and gives you the ability to shoulder. i don't get it.

but i'm not complaining. thanks!

Any love for a Santa Cruz Stigmata? They need to bring this bike back.

Nothing like showing a lil dirt on your rig!
Don't let the neg replies throw you in the 41, they don't get that riding through mud/sand/grass/etc can be exhilarating!
Keeps us sharp in "the off season"!
I'll give it another hot!

yah but the Kona doesn't show a gob of cables under the top tube w/ poor anchor points on the warbird. I'd have to get a frame bag just to hide it but the frame bag itself would be the eye sore The kona ti is clean but over the 3k budget I'm looking at for a disc CX bike

My first season


This was my first cyclocross season and it was a blast, I am hooked. Rode my first race in January on my mountain bike then started searching ebay and craigslist and came across this nice Trek XO1 with many carbon upgrades. Got 6 more races in in the fall and can't wait till next year.

How do you guys feel about unorthodox colors on cross bike? I know my buddy James loves his Stybar Crux.

I'm @ a cross road right now, & have the chance to buy this frameset too.
I was going to get one of my Spesh painted to match Sybar's Crux. Not sure if I want to build up another CXer, or just go & paint 1 of my current bikes.

Well building up a freshly painted frameset is going to be just as much work as building up a brand new one so you might as well just take the opportunity to buy that one you were looking at. I imagine it looks damn good and painting is going to cost a lot anyway.

I just got rid of one of CXers, didn't need 4.
I've built up most of my bikes, so I can handle it.
If the frameset is the E5 I may bite, the only thing that's keeping me fro snatching that Crux, is its darker pink where this one is white. Its leading me to believe it may not be a E5.
