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".

Getting a cross bike in NZ - is online an option

I've fallen in love with the idea of owning a cross bike here in NZ - our country is perfect fpr it. Only problem is lack of anyone who sells them - let alone some competition. The local cannondale dealer will get me one in for roughly TWICE the RRP in the US, soooo....., I know its kiinda sacrilige, but can anyone recommend a good online shop that would sell me a cross frame. I wopuld prefer to make it up here, as parts are actually good value, but I need a frame first. Thanks from the other side

you mean an on-line store from the USA ? I'm not sure if they will ship internationally on a frame, try a few like Webcyclery, Speedgoat, you'd just have to call them or e-mail them to ask. Lemond makes a steel frame you might be able to get through a Trek dealer in Auckland.

REI might be a source. They sell two CX models.

I know you can get a K2 Enemy in NZ. Sportive NZ Ltd. is the distributor & they are in Christchurch. Ask for Kev Mair.
