Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking 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.

two questions, sites and redline question

Does anyone know of any more populated forums for cyclocross? Right now there are only 19 users browsing this section and cyclocross season is right around the corner, I'm surprised there aren't more people on.

Anyways, the second question is about Redline's geometry, I had a redline 50cm and just got ride of it because I felt too cramped on it. The redline 50cm has a 52.2cm TT but like a 55cm c-t seat tube. I just bought a Cannondale cyclocross which fits me 10 times better, it's a 50cm and has a 53cm TT on the seat tube c-t is like 52cm. My road bike has a 54cm TT. With a 100cm stem on the cannondale it fits me perfect for cyclocross, a little high on the stand over but I just have to learn not to slip out of my pedals I tried the 52cm Redline with a 53.5cm TT and I couldn't even get the saddle low enough, my legs were too extended. Why do they do this? The Redline are SWEET bikes and it killed me to get ride of mine but I really didn't want to go with like a 110cm stem, I'm racing cyclocross with it, not touring or riding road. Not only that but if I fell off my pedals with that 50cm Redline I could say good by to my little friends, there was absolutely no standover height on that. Are Redlines meant for the gifted of tallness?

Try http://forums.roadbikereview.com/forumdisplay.php?f=47. The 'cross forum here seems to attract folks who own 'cross bikes, but tend to use them for purposes other than racing.

Exactly! Roadbikereview has a lot of serious racers who contribute to the forum often. Sometimes this means heated debates but nevertheless you'll find more hard corp cross folks there. Nothing against this forum, its equally as helpfull. Bring on October!!!!
