Signed up for my first cross race at Charm City next month and trying to figure some things out. I have 2 cross bikes- the geared one is my road and gravel bike, and an ENO’d singlespeed is my commuter.
I’m wondering if it would be dumb to begin my cross racing career on an SS? My thoughts as to the benefits are less things to fuss with, I can just concentrate on riding. Drawbacks include the inability to switch rear wheels if I flat and the possibility of being undergeared at times. Some advice given to me was not to bring any pit bike/wheels, just go out and ride, and if I have a mechanical, I’ll probably be just as well to wrap it up for the day.
