    More Cross Check Action

    Yeah, I'm a dork.

    Apologies for the goofy shots. My cinematographer was summarily fired after the shoot.

    They're the flowy-ist. Also epic.

    Good job!

    One of the best threads on MTBR...

    ...and a chance to ride another type of bike is always a super event for me, but mine isn't a new fangled ride. A Raleigh Road frameset I got from a friends shop and to tell ya the truth I don't even know what year/model it is, but I can tell ya it's a true road bike that I rigged up single speed with old stuff laying around the shop makes it so sweet! In the process of up coming paint job, so I hope ya don't mind the naked looks of it.

    I don't question it, ask too much from it. or lean on it hard. I just ride it expecting nothing but fun!

    Sweet ride, NEPMTBA! Cool that you don't know the pedigree of your frame and pieced it together. the first bike i took off road was a rattle can ross frame that i built up in a night with spare parts and the fattest tires that it could fit. I had a blast on that ride, and from what i hear, a friend is still enjoying it. those are the kind of bikes that forces you to forget about gear and brands and just ride.

    BTW, are those 32 or 35 tires on there?

    First singletrack ride

    Me and my buddy took my cross bikes out on some fun muddy singletrack yesterday. This was the first time that I took my bikes out for pure single track fun other than short sections of singletrack during cyclocross races. We brought our mountain bikes just in case we couldn't stand it. We had so much fun that we decided to do a second lap. I slid out and had a small crash. They handle a lot differently than mountain bikes do. I found the front end giving out very easily on wet muddy turns. I was able to clear all of the up and overs. The bikes handled a lot quicker than our 29ers, likely because of the shorter wheelbase. Overall lots of fun and I would do it again.

    Hey guys........new here/first post. Fun looking thread!!! Loving all the pics, too. Just what I'd been looking for; some confirmation that riding a cross through hell IS crazy, but not unheard of at all.

    I don't have a cross bike, yet. But, I'm in the process of doing my research and selecting. There's some great trails here in Arkansas. After I get a ride together, maybe I can join in the photo sharing here.

    In post #98 of pg.2 of this thread, there is a "Singular" belonging to Martini. Sorry....can't quote or post links, so please refer, if you would. Anyway....

    Could/would you, Martini, or anyone else, tell me if that's an IGH on there? If so, brand? Speeds? Also, the tires....model? Size? I'm in love with this ride. Very nice!

    Patience, young Skywalker.

    The "intro" thread is in General, at the top.

    I got nothing on Martini's bike. But it sure is purdy, innit?

    Purdy an' tuff! Yeah, that thing is righteous. I'm wanting to move in the direction of a build such as that one, but alas......this "middle aged" Skywalker don't have the moula for it, yet. I just purchased a CC frameset to build. Eventually, I'll have a framebuilder install some disc mounts and get a wheelset built with the IGH thing happenin'. Probably in another year or so after I get some dust collectors sold.

    Thanks for the reply and the "intro" direction. Cheers!

    It's a Singular Peregrine. It has a Phil Wood EBB, so it can geared, single speed, or IGH (which I think it what Martini has). Disc only, clearance for about 2.0" tires.

    Iv pretty much gone 100% cyclocross, Its just more enjoyable to go "road" riding and take dirt trails at ease.
    This was on a section of the Fullerton Loop, in socal.

    I actually don't have the bike anymore, but it sure was flexy! A good friend has it now, and rides it around Mt. Diablo all the time.

    I tend to ride alone, so no action shots. Here's my brand-new Nature Boy Zona on the maiden voyage (yes, I'm going to be flooding this forum with pics, I'm pretty excited about it.)

    I finally got a cross bike after riding road bikes and mountain bikes for a few years now. It isn't the greatest cross bike, but it gets the job done. Here is mine on a trail yesterday.

    Nice! it's cool to see photos the different terrain people are riding on. being from the midwest, i've always always wanted to do some riding out west. this summer hoping to do some riding out in Albuquerque, NM while there for a wedding.

    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking for a couple of months since I decided to start riding my bike properly again. This is the best thread on the forum

    I made this video of my ride today in Thetford Forest (UK) It's Specialized Tricross from a few years ago, I'm halfway through replacing all the original running gear. Mostly used for commuting, road riding, and blasting trails. Not really into racing at the moment.

    youtube.com/watch?v=zbQR1Uv-cBA



    Ok, back to lurking!

    I'm 215 lbs, and don't have any luck with canti brakes, especially when riding off-road on a descent of any significance. No descending shots here, but the discs help for varying conditions as well. 135mm rear spacing with Stans Crests. The Crests are rated at 190 lbs max rider weight I believe, but have stayed true so far.

    On Rocky Ridge in Santa Teresa County Park; San Jose, Ca. I think I ride my CX bike single track as much as I do on fire roads and such.
