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.

Classic road quill stems and cyclo-cross?

Hello,
I am wondering if anyone uses standard negative angle quil stem on his/her cyclo-cross bike? I know that the negative angle crates an agressive road-bike riding position. Should this be an issue on the c-x bikes?
Thanks

what do you think those of us who started racing cross before threadless was around did (and still do)?

My Colnago uses a standard quill style, and I use a normal -17' ITM on it. Works fine. Heck, if youw ant the bars higher you just raise the stem, simple as that.
