Two things are important specifically for cx
1. Tow spikes for steep run ups.
2. A set of shoes you don't mind destroying running and riding in mudslop, water, grit, and grime.

I had an SF02 and it was a great bike. Excellent efficiency and low weight for a 120mm bike. It did have a somewhat tall head tube though. I would chose it over the Camber any day. The line is a...

I don't have my first mountain bike anymore (a 1998 rigid Rockhopper) but I do have my second mountain bike. Its a still very fast Tomac Buckshot scandium hardtail. I'll never sell it.

Some times yes, sometimes no. I've had high end brakes that squeaked, and cheap ones that didn't. Add in water and dust, and you might or might not get squeaking.

The problem is making a bike last the duration of the race under horrible conditions. Having good legs, then being taken out of the race because of mechanicals really sucks.
