My CX bike had a creak which became ever louder when I stood on the pedals (up hills, sprinting).The eventual solution? Clean all dirt off the rear dropouts and skewer. Then smear grease on the…Continue

I like my Bont road shoes and will need new MTB shoes before the next cyclocross season.How are Bont XC shoes for cyclocross? Does the firm sole give enough for muddy runups or jumping over…Continue

"There are several groups that train in Woodland Park August-November. There are many good routes around the park with lots of offroad, runups, etc. The Greenwood area has many gravel alleys that I like to do sprints through. There's a 1km…"

"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…"

"Good catch. I found out the source of my creak was a frame cracked on down tube AND seat tube just above BB. Yow! "

Fixing that creak

My CX bike had a creak which became ever louder when I stood on the pedals (up hills, sprinting).The eventual solution? Clean all dirt off the rear dropouts and skewer. Then smear grease on the skewer and also the inside and outside faces of the rear dropouts on the frame.For now, the Principle of Silence is being observed properly and I can ride in peace.See More

Geoffrey Grosenbach replied to david taylor's discussion neutral support questions
"They would definitely have an air pump. I suggest bringing your own kit with extra sealant. I put some CX tires on an old heavy set of wheels that I use as a backup. You might consider buying an extra pair of disc wheels if you're worried…"

"I took a disc-equipped bike and retrofitted it to use TRP 8.4s. No regrets...a great brake. I ran them a bit loose in muddy races but they clean quickly after one rotation of the wheel. I wouldn't worry about clearance unless you notice…"

The Cheer Handup

At today's race some kids were at the race with a parent doing a "cheer handup."My first reaction as I turned the corner on the first lap was "What a bunch of prudes! Holding out a piece of paper? 'Cross is about the BEER handup, or at least a donut or some bacon!"They were still there on the second lap. "Cheer handup, cheer handup!" As far as I could tell, no one had taken one yet. Not surprising! This is Cat 3; serious racers who are extremely focused.Third lap they were still there, although…See More

"To clarify: yes, you can run road sized latex tubes on 'cross tires."

Geoffrey Grosenbach replied to Kris Fleming's discussion Latex tubes
"I've used them and know a friend who does. Latex can stretch quite a bit before there would be any problem. I have flatted twice on latex, so it's not bulletproof, but I like the ride quality."
