After a 20+ year break from road racing, I'm thinking about trying a CX race this year. I'm not going out to win, just to have a good time and establish a baseline of my fitness level. If all works out well, then I'll take it from there....we'll see.
I'm want to use my alloy Monocog which is fitted with 700c wheels (yes, they fit nicely!), discs and drop bars.
I currently have a 36x16 ratio on there now, but I think that might be too much gear for a beginner???
