    Started the build for my son's bike..

    Thanks to krisdrum, I have got all the stuff to build up a CX bike for my son.

    My wife and I are concerned about his preoccupation with CX now. He can't make it for more than 10-15 minutes without mentioning his bike, getting into CX, and/or setting up our own course.

    If he keeps going like this, it'll be time to slip him a benadryl mickie so he can get some sleep...

    I told him about this forum, I told him he could ask you guys about this stuff for awhile...I need a break

    Built my son a cross bike after he raced last year on a mountain bike. He can't wait until the fall.

    My wife has the same problem with me. It gets worse in the fall.

    That's great. He could be obsessing over much worse things than CX.
    Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness.

    Yeah, we are looking for CX in our area. He should be ready to race in the fall if he works at it..
