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.

26 incher needs upgrade

i ride a verycoolfun comfy 26 inch drop bar all steel gravel bike, i love the bike but it is heavy fork was cheap crazy heavy flexy steel, need up grade
wheels old heavy strong need upgrade
everything else is ok good quality works well, i can nickel and dime the improvements and get it up to speed over time but wonder if i am just wasting $$
anyone happy with their 26 incher
i need about $1000 to get newer ok bike may not be best level of performance but i keep getting smoked but 700c gravel bikes
