Hey there. I'm building up my first CX bike and plan to race this season. What can I expect from the courses here in Southern California? Any specific recommendations you would give a noob based on type of courses most commonly used. Mud? Hills? Pavement? All of the above?
I'm most likely going to run a mix of Sram Rival and Force. At least for my first season I plan on running a 36/46 up front and 12-27 in back. Any other suggestions. Thanks.
