Wanted Cyclocross Bike

by Jonny7C   September 8, 2012  

I've done a bit of 3rd & 4th cat racing this year and fancy a dabble at cyclo cross but don't want to shell out a small fortune of it's not my thing. Does anybody have a 2nd hand cyclo cross bike that they're looking to part with? I'm 5ft 10. Cheers.

Have a look at the Ridley X Ride CX - I have the 2011 model, Ridley claim it to be the lightest Alloy cyclo cross bike in the WORLD! Although it has carbon forks.

Mine has Ultegra Gears and Levers with V-Brakes - Sram Chainset, 34/48, - cassette 12/25 It's been used for about 200 mile only road use. I put Michelin road tyres on it (makes a beautiful lightweight road bike) I would consider selling it for about £850 providing I can find a road bike to replace it of similar value; and as lightweight. It's a 52cm frame, I'm the same height as you 5ft.10in It fits perfectly, it's not really a 52cm, imo cyclocross are a different size to road bikes I'm a 55/56 cm in a road bike. Ridley X ride new = about £1400.

With Road tyres

With the original tyres, I removed when new.

Thanks Mostyn but I've managed to pick something up on e-bay. Plus it was a bit out of my budget price range.

I did West Mids cyclocross at Redditch yesterday. The way I feel today, possible rethink, buy a X-Box and play virtual cyclocross .... much less pain!!

Anyone know a good knee specialist?
