It seems to me there are 2 types of CX fans here. Those into intense cyclocross racing, and those who love their CX bikes for everyday commuting, exercise, trail exploring, and adventure. I'm personally in the latter group. I wonder if we could somehow identify which discussions are along which lines, unless everyone recognizes the difference by thread topic. Nothing against racing, but I'd almost like to see a separate forum for the more relaxed CX cycling topics.
Just my 2 cents.
