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.

I thought you were getting an Axis? What made you change your mind? I only ask because I've been going back and forth between the Lemond Poprad and the Bianchi Axis and if the build was a better option (financially that is) then I might actually go in that direction. If so, I will need a lot of advice as to what are some of the better components to get. Thanks.

Those on my bike are good componants. And YES the build is definatly a better way to go. I'm getting a 2 grand bike for about the same price as the Axis man! Get sponsership with them! Go to www.ridesoul.com and check them out. They are looking for my cyclocross riders and sponsership is almost sure. Go look at the level 2 sponsership. Awesome guys to deal with. In fact, find their number and call them. They will fax or email you specs and the like on the frame and they don't mark their componants up very much at all! You'd be surprised!

Definatly the way to go.
