WTD: Cyclo Cross bike

by will   February 5, 2009  

Gears or Singlespeed. I'm 6ft 3" so i guess about a 56cm - 58cm.

Looking around the £300 mark, but ideally less.

but you can bag a specialized tricross for about £300 on ebay if you're lucky, singlespeeds have gone for as little as £220. cracking bike for the money.

before you go anywhere on that Singlecross take all the moving parts apart and whack a load of decent grease in there, the sealing in the hubs/headset/BB is really rather rubbish

i had one last year and the rear hub packed up after four rides, i did take it off-road though and treated it bad, things should last better if you're using it mainly for grubby road pootlage

it's a great bike let down by cheapo components, but for £200 it's quite bargainlicous
