    fixed gear

    1. Can you race a fixed gear in cyclocross in a offical race --USCF race
    2. Is a brake required by USCF?

    I know rule vary by event. I can Time trial my fixed gear legally, but I cannot race it in a crit. I can road race in unofficial races only on a fixed gear.

    Thank you.

    Pretty sure you can run fixed at most races. I recently rode my pista using a
    freewheel & no one noticed (or cared) that I was only running a front brake.
    Later I crashed and had to disengage my brake so I finished the race riding
    a brakeless singlespeed (!)

    I was told that bullhorns are not allowed as they are considered similar to
    bar ends which apparently pose a safety risk.
