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.

Yes, agreed, very nice looking bike! That "6-Pack" front rack, I can't find it anywhere online.. Got a serious "must have" urge. Anyone who's got an URL to an online store that sells it?

The fork is stock. I've seen it referred to as "The World's Ugliest Fork" when Specialized is being bashed.

As far as I know the rack is only available from Specialized. Front and rear are sold as a set.

My Winterfixie died on me so I bought this very slightly used Focus Mares Cross yesterday. My first CX bike and I really enjoyed the first ride today.

This is the first picture I've seen on this thread that actually looked like a cross bike.

Woah, what wheels are those?

Edit: That was easy to find: Roval Pavé. Are those the tubeless version?
