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.

Surly Crosscheck

Shimano Rear Derailleur (didn't even need a jtek to get this to work!!)
Shimano m520 pedals
Tektro cr720/oryx Salmon Mtn Pads
Ultegra Compact front (gonna replace with a 39t and bbg guard)
Stock bars, stem, wheelset, 12/25 cassette

Probably gonna paint it orange and get some blue tape.


Love this bike- it has character. If you paint it, please paint the fork as well. How close to perfect is the fit of those Hudz on the Cane Creek brake lever?

Thanks! I used a razor blade and cut down the sides slightly. Here are some pics for comparison. I apologize ahead of time as I know this isn't the thread for this...

Nothing compared to most of your guys' bikes, but at least it was cheap.





I was skeptical about the flat bars, but after riding it on some MTB trails I'm glad I kept them. 8x1 XTR/XT drivetrain. Ready to find some CX races

Here's my 2007 TriCross Comp, set up for road duty. It's got just shy of 6,000 miles on it.

Here's a pic of mine. I just finished getting it together a few days ago. I bought a Kona Jake the Snake frame and transferred over my 2000 Lemond Zurich components to it. It has Ultegra shifters and front derailleur, rear DA derailleur, Paul's Neo Retro brakes, Mavic Open Pro wheels (with ceramic braking surface), Ultegra hubs and Maxxis Locusts tires. I had switched out the gearing on the Lemond to a 50/34 crankset and a 12-27 cassette previously, so this is the gearing on the new JTS. I'm new to cyclocross, but not new to cycling. I also have a 2009 Cervelo RS road bike and a Giant Rainier beater MTB.

Here is mine. Its a conversion of an old hybrid. I raced on it once with downtube shifters. They weren't too bad, but I did finish 2nd to last.

Yeah, it's a 1 x 10 and I have yet to drop the chain on my commute, maybe 500 miles so far. I love the fact that I built it myself , including the wheels, and I can go anywhere with it.

That is one sharp, sharp looking bike, bet it rides swift...................................you done good on that build.

Dusted off the bike (actually stole it back from my teammate) for a ride. Sorry I'm blocking it a bit...

I think you need to have a single speed to rock a sticker like that. I think it's a UCI rule or something.


BTW, nice bike and caught in it's natural state.
