Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) 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 : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I talk about my experience on my Poseidon Redwood converting the stock Prowheel Charm crank to a two piece Prowheel Charm crank and Shimano external BB
Feedback welcome.

I am surprised they still put square taper BB on bikes. How much difference can there be in the cost.

It could also be because of part availability.
