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.

Looks like a bike to work day tomorrow, but may have a shower at some point so it was time to fit the fenders.

Bamboo of course

Got a new bar with a short reach that is very flat and a shallow drop.
31.8mm though so had to buy a matching stem

Planet X is great kit.

Another ride and some dirt and Tarmac, nothing fell off and the new bottle cage mounts stayed on

The Planet X bar and stem put the levers in a better position, time for some miles.

wheel re-build on the cards, but the bike is basically done.

Well, obviously we're all even more awed than we were before. (Seriously - I am awed.)

..But aren't you worried about Pandas???

not too much, I don't think there are many in South Leicestershire!

I do use the canal tow paths a lot though, hope no dogs decide it's a fast moving stick to chase!
