I am looking for a 2nd CX (pit) bike.  I love my Cannondale: CAAD9 CX, but am temped to try the Van Dessel: Gin & Trombones as a frame/fork only build.  The geometry is very similar with a 59.5…Continue

Adhesive cable guides on CX front fork for the disc brake cable

Where can I buy adhesive cable guides to go on a front carbon fork (to attach the front disc brake cable w. zip-ties)? Also, separate question: when I tie the continuous cables to the CX frame with zip ties; how can I make these cable ends safe? Now they are like 12 separate little black knives. Do I cut them flush with a razor blade, or melt the end with a lighter?See More

"Thanks, I appreciate the vote of confidence from a fellow tall-dude! I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the G&T as a frame/ fork only (canti brake option for the fork). I will work on building it up for next season. Yea, you are probably…"

"My first bike was a G&T and now I have a custom frame from a local builder. My limited experience is that the G&T is a fast dry conditions bike. The steep seat tube angle puts your weight over the front wheel and is hard to handle in the…"

"I disagree. Life is too short to ride all the bikes I want to, why make it worse by buying the same bike twice? Try something new!"

"Get another Cannondale.  If you have 2 different bikes one will always be your favorite and thus less useful as a pit bike.  Pit bikes are only good if you can switch from one to another without any notice."

Van Dessel: Gin & Trombones

I am looking for a 2nd CX (pit) bike.  I love my Cannondale: CAAD9 CX, but am temped to try the Van Dessel: Gin & Trombones as a frame/fork only build.  The geometry is very similar with a 59.5 vs 60cm top tube and a 200mm head tube on both.  I am tall 6'-4".  Any tall riders with a Gin & Trombones review?See More

"I second the technique criticism.  You want the top-tube of the bike to be resting on your shoulder with your right arm sticking through the main triangle. The right arm will then come under the down tube and reach up to grab the bottom of the…"

"Hi Erik - I had the same concern so I practiced starts over and over and over (seriosly, lots of reps) and now I nail the entry every time. Practice is cheaper than new pedals. Good luck."

As a longtime Crank Brothers Eggbeater pedal user (for road, MTB and cyclocross); I am considering making a switch to Shimano SPD pedals for cyclocross. The reason being that on race starts, I can't clip in on my left foot in time to stay with the pack.Does anyone use the "trail version" (with outer cage) Shimano XT PD-M785 pedals for cyclocross?…See More
