"I was just thinking the same thing. I haven't done Ithaca yet so I am really looking forward to this Saturday!
How do people feel about the different Tailwind age groups and classifications this year? It won't really affect me…"
"Hi Patrick. Yep, Scott does great work, his prices are actually fantastic compared to other custom builders too.
Stock bikes are getting so freaking expensive that custom frames are starting to make more and more sense, especially if you…"
"Hi Randy, my reason for not wanting discs on my cross bike is from personal experience. As such, I might be the only guy out there who has had a problem and I'm not trying to change anyone's mind:) My beef with discs…"
"I too am getting really tired with the whole disc brake thing, but then again I'm not going to buy them in any case so I won't pay attention to the marketing. I just think they are more trouble than they are worth for cross, but…"
"Interesting post Adam. The B over 40 group is still pretty big even after the split. From my perspective (back of the pack) the racing experience is the same as before the split. The races are still fun and they still hurt just the…"
Don't worry, you will like cross. A lot.
I got a custom Ti frame built last year and tricked it out with good components and nice carbon tubular wheels. I love the bike, but it didn’t make me any faster than my…"
I'm racing B's and also a couple of singlespeed races.
The splitting of the B's will be interesting, the category is certainly big enough.
Moving the singlespeed race to a different time than the B race is a great idea and more…"
I absolutely agree with what Curt said. The Masters race is the second fastest race but the fast B guys are PLENTY fast.
I have only done one ss race so far and there were 4 of us doing it. The winner was a…"
"I am doing the Bs again. I will also do a couple of singlespeed races, maybe day 2 of Double Cross and day 2 of Vet's. I am usually cooked after the first day so I might as well try to have fun on the second day.
I agree with…"
I started cycling in April of 08, so I am a beginner. I love road and CX and MTB.
I also like to run, I have many 5Ks and 10Ks under my belt as well as a half marathon and a full marathon, but cycling has captured my full attention lately...
Current Bike Collection:
-Quiring Cycles Ti cross bike
-Redline Conquest Single Speed cross bike
-Gary Fisher Paragon hard tail 29er
-Giant road bike
-Kona Jake the Snake 'cross bike
-Old Peugeot mountain bike modified with drop bars, transformed into a single speed. It would pass for an old 'cross bike if it wasn't for the 26" wheels. It looks as strange as it sounds... It is my commuter.
Mad Anthony at Fort Wayne in Detroit
I already have it, a custom Ti cross bike
Favorite thing about cyclocross:
Pretty much everything, but the people are the best thing about it.
