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.

bike opinion Trek 1000

I found a Trek 1000 for a good price. The picture shows an original fork but it looks more vertical than many other bikes I've seen. Is this bike known for being twitchy? or is the picture just misleading, or perhaps angle of fork isn't really a concern. I'm hoping this bike will be good for general road fun, 60 miles or less, and my commuting next year. I plan to add a rear rack to it.

I did, thank you. Actually I posted here by mistake. I don't even know what Cyclocross is. I did post to a couple of threads though because it is a timely item that is moving fast and I was desperate for a consensus opinion. As it turns out the the seller is no longer responding and I fear it has been sold ...
