    Thanks. I did a longer ride yesterday and the reach was short enough that anything out of the saddle felt awkward. I'll split the difference between the current stack / reach and the setup on my road...

    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.

    I switched from Continental GP4000S to Schwalbe One tubeless in July. With about 1,000 miles on them, I'm happy. I weighed the wheels before and after, and it was a 140 gram weight penalty per...

    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...

    I've commuted on a Supersix in Seattle for the past five years. It works great. I put some race blades on it if it rains and just use a backpack.

    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 found my own answer. The pass is open year round to bikes, so we are free to ride up there any time. Only cars are prohibited right now. The trick is finding a time when the roads have been cleared...

    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.
