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.

Show us your gravel/cross bike...

Wow jacobs,

Really loved the bike in it's raw form and the painted version just adds to the grin factor. Awesome job.

My CX bikes

I saw another Airborne Carpe Diem in this thread and thought 'how cool!' So here's my CX Carpe Diem.



[EDIT: 14-Sep-07]

I just finished up my "monster cross pit bike" ... Surly Cross-Check

New Bike.
Need to take some more interesting pictures of it, and do a lot more riding, but I am pleased so far after barreling through 6 miles of cross country courses down in Blue Ridge , GA.

Still need to replace saddle (this one is a loaner hence the weird color) but I figured the bike can't get much weirder anyways ...



I love that Schwinn!!! So sweet!! I was wondering what type of hub brake that is? I have recently built up a Sturmey Archer XFD front hub-braked wheel and was a little annoyed to find that the cable is only compatible with flat bar levers. Unless of course I want to do some major surgery..... Anyway, please let me know what hub brake that is and if it fitted drop levers straight out of the box. Close up pics of cable/hub connection? Please...

Thanks... I have the SRAM VT5000 front. I would say that the lever are borderline on giving enough pull. I am working on something that would increase my pull.

oh noooo... your crossing that slippery slope where you'll soon need a frame to find a home for all the displaced parts your collecting.

Whenever I replace a perfectly good part I quickly burn it to a smoldering paper weight. This keeps me from having to explain to my wife why I now have another bike. It also avoids the vicious cycle of replacing the parts on your parts bike which eventually leads to another parts bike which leads to another parts bike......

i digress.

Well if you aren't running an STI lever you could always take the easy way out and get a dia-compe v-brake compatatible road lever.
