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.

Orbea Lobular - What Is It? What is a Cross Bike?

Hi. My friend is wanting to buy a 2004 Orbea Lobular with full dura ace and ksyrium SL wheelset (also carbon fiber chainstay, seatstay, and handlebars) for $699. I looked at Orbea's website and they have a Lobular Cross. I am guessing the 2004 is a Cross too, and Cross is meant for cyclocross.

Is it a good bike? Is it a good price?

Can't beat it for that price. Depending on the condition that is... Be careful of bikes raced as they could be pretty heavily abused.
