New to forum, like what I see. Gobs of good information. Just purchased a cyclocross bike, going to get back into riding (been absent way too long). Unfortunately, the season is short up here in Fargo, but I'm going to make the best of it.
I'm guessing you bought your cyclocross for riding and cyclocross racing?
I bought a cyclocross bike (see picture below) to use as a commuter. Great for potholes and crappy streets.
My bikes: 2001 Litespeed Tuscany---2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO carbon
Welcome. I know what you mean about the short season. I grew up in Duluth, MN but now reside in Atlanta where we can ride year around.
