Rode DCCX today: my first CX race AND first competitive cycling event all at once. I cannot believe my good fortune in starting out on this race. Yes, I bit it a couple of times... all remounts. There were only a few dead-leg moments.
My undying gratitude is owed to the couple who shouted for me to come closer to the right side tape riding one descent into some mud, as that was the only spot that hadn't been rutted axle deep by the 4:15 start!
I am going to…Continue
I never thought I would Race a bicycle. I'm glad I did. This was my 7th race, got 7th place. I hope those numbers don't start a trend, 102'd race 102'd place, that won't work for me. My old fighting spirt is coming back, and I love it.

After a month my new FMB's have a gummy/sticky sidewall. I only use a mild soap to wash my bike. How do I get this stuff off so I can recoat it with a better sealant?
I know I am not the only one with this issue, at this point I would just like to know how to safely remove the origianl stuff?

I'm selling a very lightly used 2010 Slingshot DD-x frameset, $800 obo. The frameset includes a 5 degree sweep Ritchey WCS carbon cx fork and Cane Creek IS-8 headset. The bike was built up for last cx season but is about 5cm too tall for me. I judged sizing incorrectly, unfortunately, based on VTT, not stack and reach.
The frame has an Aluminum alloy main triangle bonded to a carbon rear triangle, it is extremely light, stiff, and responsive, yet comfortable enough to enjoy…Continue
