I purchased a new bike for my first season racing cross. The reach feels a little short, especially when riding on the tops or out of the saddle. If this were a road bike, I would swap out the...

Thanks. I guess I'm hoping to take my existing Speedplay Zero muscle memory and use it on a different pedal suitable for cross. It sound like the Eggbeaters might be similar.

Thru Axle question

I'm leaning toward buying a 2015 Raleigh RXC Pro Disc as my new cross bike. I can get a really good price through my team. The only spec that gives me pause is the thru axles. The RXC Pro Disc has...

Hurricane Ridge is a great climb. I rode that last fall. There are a few miles of 8-9% pitches below the park entrance, and then it settles down into 10+ miles at around 5%.

I rode over it in late June and it was open then. It is one of my favorite climbs; a nice winding road, lots of tree cover for shade, and almost zero traffic.
