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.

Steel frame cross bikes

Hello, this is my first post on this forum.

Besides the Jamis Nova, LeMond Poprad, and Surly Cross Check what are some steel frame cross bikes?

Can't say I like the color. I ride a mtb by this guy and it's wicked.

I ride a Pinarello steel frame cx bike. I've bought a steel frame made by Pinarello. it was one of the last runs of steel cx frames by this Italian manufacturer. The rest os the bike is pretty much Campy Centaur and bunch of other nice goodies. Rides like a dream. Last time I checked I noticed that Pinarello switched to Aluminum in their cx line. Too bad. I know a place where you can get one of these frames. Email me if you need more info: iemir@yahoo.com
Otherwise you can go full custom as other person has suggested.

The Bianchi Axis crossbike. I got mine in May. Awesome bike once you get the front brakes properly tuned.

2005 Poprad switches from Reynolds 853 to Platinum tubing, gets a true cross double crankset with a 12-27 cassette, carbon post and better quality inline levers.. still basically the same price and still 105 all around.. white with blue panels paintjob looks awesome to boot. buy it!

I bought one this past Saturday. It was supposed to arrive today (Wed.) but now is scheuduled to arrive Monday. LBS said, maybe, a slight chance it will get here by Friday. I sure hope so as it will occupy my weekend.
