I got one for Christmas!
Nah nah naah!
Nice wee video of the Scottish Cyclocross Championships from this weekend shot by Russell.
Am using Michelin 'Jet' and 'Mud2' tyres at the moment depending on the weather and expected terrain. They are great but do not last very long; I suspect they are more racing tyres. What is the best general purpose/training tyre? I do a lot of off road on moorland and tracks; a lot of the tracks I do are quite rocky and tend to destroy the Michelin's...
Kings Cliffe Flyers run Cyclocross training on Thursday nights at Kings Cliffe Active. 7:30 - 8:30. Cost £2.
A good hours training on cyclocross skills and fitness.
If you're interested come along or contact me if you want more info.
Having just moved 8 miles out of town, I'm looking for something I can use to run the commute and for a bit of weekend fun/fitness, and that I can maybe think about doing some light touring on. I'm after a decent balance of speed and comfort, and something I can ride year-round.
I had been looking at a Genesis Croix de Fer, as that seems to be a sturdy workhorse that could easily cope with winter commutes and would be a bit of fun for the weekends. My concerns, though, are the weight and the price.
The Crux is a rare beast; a thousand pound cyclo-cross bike that's designed for actual cyclo-cross. It's not a jack-of-all-trades utility bike dressed up as a CX bike but a 'cross bike that's designed for what cyclo-cross really is - racing.
