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.

IGH for cyclocross

Does it make sense to use an Alfine hub on a cyclocross bike?

Course dependant..

If you got no big run ups, Because the portage may be a bit of work ,
but just a quick barrier leap shouldn't be too much ..

Maybe one of those 3 speed fixie hubs? as I read they are Direct in high,
the other 2 are reduction gears..
to get over modest hills..
