Today was my last race of the year. It was a very good way to end my season.
The rains of yesterday delivered the mud we'd waited for all season. It wasn'y especially wet or gloppy, and I didn't get a whole ton of it on me or my bike; but it was thick and deep enough in spots to slow everyone down and force many off their bikes on runups most could've ridden in dry weather and so it was good enough.
The course was a modified -- some said watered down -- version of the USGP…
I came in to season thinking I would do a couple races. I think I did 12. This might be the best or the worst sport ever,could be both. I've realized despite my 36 years of age and 0 years of bicycle racing, I still want to search and destroy! Racing C's next weekend. Thank you Metropolis Cycle Repair for having me. CX is a puzzle I will crack.

Johnny Newb here and having a tough time washing front wheel out in muddy corners - more trouble than the other newbs. I realize that this is a technique problem, BUT what tire can I use in the front to help the cause. I spend each race passing several riders in staight sections only to watch them pass me as I am re-mounting after going down, over and over again.
I am trying to slow up heading into the corner with excels coming out, pedaling threw the corner as much as possible,…Continue

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.

The day dawned cool, almost crisp, and cloudy. I enjoyed a nice ride down to the venue from my house. By the time I'd gotten to PIR at around 10:15 am, the clouds were breaking up a little. By noon the sun had broken through and I no longer needed my long-sleeved base layer; I swapped in a lighter sleeveless layer instead. The course was mostly dry, with long stretches of gravel and pavement that I didn't remember from last year. What mud there was was dry and tacky. In short, this was a…Continue

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
