My first time ever taking a bike off road. I just got the Cross-check a week prior and decided to bring it out to some of my favorite local hiking spots that's mostly double track through flat, sandy, FL upland forests. I didn't consider how badly flooded the area would be so I ended up pushing through short stretches of deep water.

This is also my first non fixie in the past 18 years. Def appreciated the gears through the soft sand and wet muck.

I posted this one a few months back. It had Gatorskins then, and now has Schwalbe CX Comps.

I found a muddy ravine that just had a horse or two down it. Hoof prints are a mother to ride down. Luckily it was thick mud. Mostly slid down, stayed clipped with my road shoes and pedals... sketchy!

Amazing bikes.

but there is something about those ultra deep carbon wheels that rubs me the wrong way.

Very nice bike. My wife got one last year. Raleigh makes really nice bikes for the money. Congrats and have a great time.

I recognize the I75 Landbridge from hiking on the Florida Trail but was wondering what the bike trails were like in the area.

I know Santos is popular but how about West of Santos on the Greenway?

I love those Super X bikes...it's a shame they don't come in any rad color schemes. I want a bright red one.

Yeah, they also need to run the gear cables along the top tube and give us a little more mud clearence on the rear end...

Okay, my Lemond Poprad upgrade is nearly done. Just wheels next.
I added the Ritchey WCS forks and Chris King headset today.

You're from my part of town.
We should take our Opus's out for a ride round town.
;)

Opus.girl 08-19-13 10:50 PM

Ghost I think I would slow you down! LOL but since I have a fellow 604 here may I ask a question..
I do plan of commuting to work but would still like to take the occasional off road paths if I feel.
Could you suggest tire type/ size that will make my trip more speedy but still confident to go off road if I want to? Also keeping in mind our type of weather ( rain )
thank!
