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.

Cypress frames

Has anyone heard of or have an opinion about Cypress cyclocross frames?

Todays your lucky day, I just happened to take a ton of pics of him at the last CrissCross event. The pics dont show a lot of the bike but you get the idea. So sweet, yet sooooo ugly.

Thanks for the pictures. And sorry for taking so long to reply. Busy times at work these days.

So your boss's bike is the Giant Cypress. The frame I was actually asking about is is not the Giant but is produced by a local company here in Vancouver Canada. The brand name is Cypress (the name of a local mountain) and they're being sold out of a local bike store (La Bicycletta). The same company also manufactures touring frames. I had never heard of them before and was wondering if anyone knew or had experience of them.

Wierd that they would use such a widely used Giant name! Never heard of them though, sorry!
