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".

Sexy Cross Bikes

For me...Seven are the most gorgeous Ti bikes on the planet.

Now, they've come up with a Ti Cross machine to boot, the Tsunami.



Any other sexy Cross bikes out there?

Just out of curiosity, how much does that beauty cost?

It is on display at the annual Interbike Trade show held in Las Vegas every year. Seven had several superpimp rigs in their booth.

Here is the most sexy cross bike........

I am going to paint the frame in a month because the colors remind me too much of the French flag. Any thoughts on what color I should paint this??

It reminds me of the Netherlands flag. Don't paint it! Netherlands + Cross = 2nd place to the Belgians.

Such weird looking inventions. I'm really going to have to try cyclocross one day, I'm very intrigued.

I sold my road bike (and lots of other stuff) for this one - A DEAN Torreys CTI. Ultegra triple (I'm a wimp).
Ritchey pro stem/bars, Alpha-Q fork, avid brakes, Thomson seatpost.

I race this against mountain bikes in odd endurance events, but will have to toughen up and pull the triple when I start trying to 'cross. There is a clinic here next week, and a camp in a few more weeks, so I can get a crash course in mounting, dismounting, run-ups and puking.

I've never ridden it, the carpe diem looks like a fun ride. I got a deal on the DEAN because it was the first they built with the carbon seat stays. (I saw that several companies seem to make the carbon seat stays as a unit that is sold to frame builders, so this will probably be seen on other frames soon. I love the ride so much, my carbon road bike is for sale (Trek 5200 if anybody is interested). Pretty muted on the small chatter. Washboard is still bumpy though!

Anyone here race singlespeed cross? That is just such an elegant and amazing thing... Too bad that is a check my legs can't cash!

Unfortunatly, Cross season is over (before it started!) for me - Torn rotator cuff, right shoulder (I suppose I could dismount right and carry left!, but my wife would still be less than thrilled). Surgery in the next few weeks. Race hard guys!
