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.

Pros: no frame is more flexible, easy to buy, can be used for anything, durable as hell

Cons: heavy steel weight and hard to find used

Buy one. I just finished a custom built cross check (my first) and absolutely love the results. Mine is more of a commuter/hybrid, but with a few tweaks it can be a full on CX bike. the ride is great compared to the aluminum framed CX bike I sold to fund the cross check build. If you look around, I doubt you'll find anyone who is dissatisfied with their cross check. Plus the folks at Surly are fantastic.
