Using a rigid MTB as a 'cross bike...
OK, first things first, I've never done any cyclocross, but I'd describe myself as reasonably capable on an MTB. I've been thinking about getting into 'cross racing, but I don't really want to spend money on a proper 'cross bike at this stage, as I'd have no other use for the bike if it didn't work out. I figured I'd ask you guys, what would you say to using an old rigid Saracen MTB for my first few races, just to get a feel for the sport and see if it's my sort of thing?
Thanks in advance...
