Cyclocross

We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.

TRP’s CX9 cross-specific v-brakes

trpcx9.jpgThough I love cyclocross, I’ve long had a love/hate relationship with the equipment used on most cross bikes. I ride a variety of terrain on my cyclocross bike including standard cross races (usually flat, sometimes muddy) but also very hilly gravel roads near my home as well as things I’d normally take my mountain bike on. The biggest difference from my MTB and my cross bike is the braking – I have sure-footed discs on my mountain bike that can reliably slow me down any steep descents with good control while my cyclocross bike’s ancient cantilever brake design mean I’m mashing them to the rim with all my might, white knuckles showing on the downhills as I watch the edge of the trail approach my front wheel at way too great of speeds.

Tread for CrossCat

Hope this tread works across all conditions and I choose the right tire pressure for the CrossCat tomorrow.

Tread

A CrossCat is a Cross Race/Alley Cat mashup crazily conceived by Raleighs Sally, Go Means Go, and a qualifier for Sunday’s Single Speed Cyclocross Worlds.

I’ve been traveling, haven’t raced in a month, and just partied for 2 days in Vegas with these people

perfect prep for SSCXWC sure, but racing against competitiors like this and any equipment advantage will help and I don’t have a pony. Always wanted a pony.

Cyclocross Tubies

Took the Hugga Hodala with new hoops out yesterday and was amazed at the difference cyclocross tubies make. I should know this from the road yes, but still it was an Episode of Glee ride.

I was giddy afterwards singing an a cappella version of Van Halen’s Jump because the bike lost five pounds and the ride changed from “occasionally harsh, choppy, abrupt” to like “pedaling over a Tempurpedic mattress.”

Our new one cross tip to rule them all is

Get the best tubies you can afford.

This wheelset cost us about $500.00.

When Mark V gets back from Taiwan, we’ll try Hutchinson Tubless on the geared Redline and see how those ride too.

Another Hed wheel hack by Mark V. This time it’s Ardenne rims laced to a Paul WORD hub for Single Speed Cross. See Mark’s earlier post and more photos in our photostream. The tires are Tufo Flexus Primus.
