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.

looking to trade Road Bike for Cyclocross

Anyone interested in trading their Cyclocross for a Road Bike? I'm looking to get back into riding and I'd like something a little less stiff. My rides now mostly consist of going with my wife and kids in the neighborhood.

My bike is this one in Matte Grey, with only 300 miles on it:

This is the kind of application hybrid bikes are great for.

Back to the shop, Trade in, or, put on consignment at the LBS . They do that, ours does, here.

Trade in gets a better value than a straight, cash when it sells, consignment.

You probably dont need Cross-race drop bars for family outings , so MM is probably right.

Thanks for the suggestions! I also posted in Hybrid because that's likely the best fit, but I expect CL to ultimately be the solution for the sale, and also a Hybrid buy.
