Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Blue CX 5.5 - thoughts?


New to this forum, and the world of cross. I'm looking at getting a cross bike, to use in the city and to race come next fall. Anyone know anything about the Blue CX 5.5? Opinions, thoughts?

As well, I'm a bigger rider (6'1", 210). What wheelset would you recommend?

On the wheels I would just go with the standard set of Mavic Open Pro's ultegra hub 32 spoke. I am 6'2" and 185lb and I trash my wheels racing and so far they are still true. Even have a back up set of the same set up for my pit bike.
