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.

Ordered a new 08 Conquest Frameset

I finally got a little $$ hoarded after an entire season of near misses, and called Seattle Bike Supply on Weds., my frameset is on the way! This will be my first real cross rig, although I built a sorta crosser from an abandoned '99 Trek 7300, it steered like crap. Lean it into a turn and it flops over like it was shot.
I expect the Redline will respond a lot better!
Can I get a witness from the choir?

I also had a Trek 7300, heavy aluminum!! Then a Miyata 3x steel but lighter and faster (or was it me? HA!). I now have a Conquest and it does what it was made for, thankfully. So hopefully, you should be very happy with yours.
