Registration for this year's Alma GP presented by Velocity USA is NOW OPEN! Race day is Saturday, September 12. Camping is available on site. Singlespeed race is sponsored by Beer Components! Gearing around 42/18 is likely where you'll need to be on race day...
When you register, be sure to pre-order your Verge Sport jersey (by July 31). Pick up your jersey when you pick up your bib number at either the Alma Brewing Company on Friday, September 11, or on race day (Saturday, September 12).
The 2014 Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross p/b Eclipse Cycling is featuring a pretty awesome prize for the SS winner this year - a set of ss-specific Velocity Major Toms!
More information is available on the race website, www.AlmaGP.blogspot.com or the FB page: www.Facebook.com/AlmaGrandPrixOfCyclocross
Lap of the course:
Allan, both bikes you mentioned should work fine. There are a lot of happy people with bikes from both companies. Are they the best? No. Are they innovative? No. Are they sexy looking? Not likely. Do they go when you pedal them? Yes they do.
There have been quite a few ss mtb's around in Michigan with happy riders. I would give preference to nashbar over bikesdirect just because nashbar has better customer service and support should something come up but bikesdirect is an okay option if that's not a concern. Keep in mind that bikesdirect is done pretty much only online, I'm not sure they even have a phone number where you can call them. I had a warranty issue that they did great with but it took a long time because it was all through emails.
Whatever gets you riding is a good choice.
Just getting started in cross and Im wondering if anyone has purchased a single speed from Nashbar or bikes direct. They have those steel frame single speeds and I was wondering if any one has one and what you think of it. OH, I'm older and just want to race to have fun. Thanks
SS race at the Ithaca GP (9/7) still caps the day at 2:00, just after the elite men! And to commemorate the Ithaca GP umbrella at the world championships this past February, 50 limited edition shirts will be available on race day for only $10:
