    I don't know if others have come across this before, but while daydreaming about riding some singletrack at work today, I found the "any bike anywhere" manifesto. Pretty cool, it talks about investing in technique and skill instead of investing in technology. My favorite quote: "a road bike is equal to or better than a mountain bike if ridden with skill like I have.

    .........and now for a cross bikes on singletrack shot.......

    You might insight a riot around here with remarks like that!

    I like Kostman (and Grant Petersen) a lot and I've always agreed with that myself. The new AM bikes have opened up the biggest advances in terrain and technology in recent years and watching those guy's ride is amazing. However, for me it comes down to the sheer joy of being outdoors and the combined challenge of balancing my equipment, skills and excitement. Riding a cross bike on all types of trails just makes me smile a bit more for some reason.

    Nice XCheck btw, that's the bike that hooked me on CX trail riding!

    Agreed! I think it's cool to see people who really focus and excel in one discipline or aspect of cycling. for me, though, i dig the challenge of trying to take my bike as many different places as possible. i also think it's pretty cool to experience something like the type of riding most people did off road prior to the advent of MTB's.

    Not quite CX, but.....

    One configuration of my Jamis Coda Elite (Steel Flat bar roadie) now has a Thomson cockpit, and clipless pedals in addition to the 37mm Sweetskins you see mounted on the wheelset in this older pic. There is enough bite to the tire's tread that I definitely take it on local singletrack, and it's a blast.

    I can easily keep up with my buddy on his brand new Specialized Epic. I'm on a stock Surly CrossCheck with the exception of FireCross tires and I weigh in at 250lbs. Nothing breaks, nothing gets tweaked. It's all about the line and your ability to flow. I have way more fun on this bike on the singletrack than my mountain bike. It's not the bike that makes things happen, it's the motor.

    Rode some yesterday, ended up in switchback central. Lots of climbing and descending, not very flat. Wish I had disc brakes! I only snapped a couple.

    Those Kenda's look mighty big on your CC. I like the look, more off-roadish than cyclo-cross.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....

    Damn, this thread is awesome! Lots of great shots, lots of sharp bikes, makes me want to be out in the woods right NOW!

    Some of yous need to post better shots of the bikes though...Dion, Antonio...better pics, please!

    Never thought I'd experience this, since I'm a roadie, but pick up a cx bike earlier this spring and now I'm full bitten by the bug. Even checking out cx bike shots more than road bikes...and about to trade out one of my road bikes for a second cross steed. Oh wow, my world is getting turned upside down, but in a good way!

    Nice photos everyone!

    I picked it up at a swap meet a few years back. It's an SKS x-tra-dry that i cut down so it's shorter. I'm pretty sure it's the older model of this: Amazon.com: SKS X-Tra-Dry Fender - Rear: Sports & Outdoors
