the spirit must be moving ! I have been in cycling for 15 years ( bmx and mt. bike mainly ) and have started to look into cyclocross . With the limited ares and the money it takes to build good tracks , cyclocross is a breeze . The best site I found was http://www.ris.net/~velodog . Patrick has really helped me out the past few days . I have also changed over my mt. bike to a cyclocross . It is a 26 " and I put 27 " rims on it . I will have to go with clipers instead of canti's . I don't know about anyone else , but I can't put out $2000 for another bike . I have a GF Tassajara and it rides great as a cyclocross . hope this helps . Keep in touch .
