For Sale Giant TCX 1 ML

I bought this bike last fall and I'm just not that into Cyclocross. Never raced. It has about 427 miles on it. The only major mishap was when the rear derailleur got caught in the spokes and broke the derailleur & derailleur hanger. The derailleur, derailleur hanger, cable & cable housing have all been replaced brand new.

"I agree. Last year I ran Speedmax's and they worked great. Especially nice was mine were the 40c so I had a bit extra girth. Conti Speedkings also worked pretty good, too. On the monster crosser I had Ritchey Zeds but at 42c, a bit bigger than…"

"I simply run an aggressive mud tyre in the winter. The (discontinued) green Michelin Mud tyres were awesome. This year, the Vittorias that I have seem to be working okay. Honestly, I used to run Ritchey Speedmax semi-slicks, and those worked…"
