Why a Cyclocross?

Postby limbot » Sun May 04, 2014 7:28 pm

Weather has been rubbish down here in Hobart this weekend, constant rain and drizzle. Got a bit of a break in the weather and decided to do a quick road ride.

Trouble is the wind was blowing.and the cars were kicking up all the spray as they went past. Not the most enjoyable experience.

Solution? Dive off into the nature reserve and do some trailing riding. No wind and no car spray :)

That's inspirng as I'm hoping to get a cx bike soon to do virtually the same.

May I ask what tyres you are using as the trails around my place look similar to the one in the picture?

It's the OEMs that came with it, Vittoria XG Pros (32mm)

Probably should have dropped the pressure a bit as they were set to 70 psi for the road ride but didn't cause me any pucker moments except when I hit a patch of sand. :p

I'm mainly a road rider, but since buying a CX bike I've been having so much fun on 4WD tracks and single track!
