I started racing cross again this season, but the MTB doesn't always cut it. So I'm looking to get my first cross bike soon & wanted to see if anyone had any opinions, feedback on some of these…Continue
I like it a lot and have been surprised on how comfy it rides. I thought the Alu frame would be harsher, but it's not at all. Obviously, the carbon fork helps out. Rode it some more lately on the road due to problems with the road bike,…"
"hi mark a!
great decision to try a 'cross bike.
CXM reviewed both a fuji and the XO 1. both were fine bikes - the treks are impressive with their mud clearance and the housebrand parts were actually pretty nice (wheels, tires, cockpit).…"
