Hi all. I'm hopping over from the roadie forum as I'm looking at picking up a cyclocross bike and trying my hand at some cross riding, but I have a question for you experienced crossers.
Just as roadies always mention budgeting for the ancillary items (pedals, helmet,decent shorts, etc.) during a road bike purchase, what would be prudent for me to budget for in this initial purchase. I'm already accounting for the standard items: pedals, saddle, etc.
But what do some of you veteran cross folks find as key to riding cross that newbie riders would be wise to pick up/budget for?
