Spooky Supertouch American Aluminum CX Machine!

Now that the tour is over it's time to start thinking about more important matters, namely that the start of cyclocross season is only 4-6 weeks away!On this forum I don't think this bike needs an introduction, but here's my take. This is a no-holds-barred cyclocross RACING machine. It is beautiful in its simplicity and raw functionality. It is light, stiff, and has a traditional tall CX geometry.I bought this frame with the intention of racing it and enjoying it for years to come. However,…See More

"Stout used wheels abound.  Start scouring ebay and bike forums.  I don't think it would be a problem to find a set of decent used wheels for $350.  You can probably find some with tires glued.…"

"Agree about the typhoons tread.  If Challenge comes out with a team edition for the chicane available to the public, I will not hesitate to try it over the typhoon next season. Sorry to derail your selling thread, enjoy the free bumps."

"Don't let gaps open up to people you want to beat.  They will be next to impossible to close in super slippery snow conditions.  Go as hard as you can at the beginning without making mistakes.  Don't make mistakes or at…"

BSUdude replied to Paul's discussion Few build questions: TRP Hylex? 1x10? Wheels?
"What kind of road riding are you going to be doing on it? 42x11 is a pretty fast gearing.  I have a CX bike setup 1x10 with a 39T front and 13 smallest cog in the rear.  Unless I was racing on the road (assuming gravel) I think 42x11 would…"

BSUdude replied to david taylor's discussion tubular tape
"No, plenty of people probably do this.  However a well glued cross tube is going to be hard to get off, and Belgian tape will make this even more difficult.  With either method it's going to take some skill and patience to get…"

BSUdude replied to david taylor's discussion tubular tape
"+1 on not using tape on aluminum rims.  Layer the glue correctly and you don't need tape.  More than likely your tire will fail before your glue job if you glue correctly."

BSUdude replied to Graham Winterbottom's discussion Race pacing?
"Another important thing to tell yourself during races is that if you are hurting, everyone else is hurting as well (especially those behind you).  Keep hurting so those behind you have to work hard to get to you."

"One thing I would add is that if you're going to buy a new pair of wheels to use in conjunction with an existing wheelset, make sure the rim widths are compatible...I had hed belgium tubular rims (wide) and mavic ksyrium clinchers (narrow) and…"

BSUdude replied to Aaron J's discussion Tire question. Challenge open tubulars & Michelin clinchers.
"This is what I did last year and it worked great.  I had 1 set of dugast typhoon tubulars which was great (I live in Indiana too) since we only had a 2 or 3 really muddy races.  In the mud I ran clinchers (PDX front, Mud2 rear).  In…"

BSUdude replied to Aaron J's discussion Tire question. Challenge open tubulars & Michelin clinchers.
"Not a big fan of the jet, but I've had success on the Mud2 in a variety of conditions.  Never used challenge tires, but "vastly better" seems like a stretch.  You could run a mud2 in pretty much any condition on the rear and…"
