    I have a Soma Junebug bar on my bike, with a similar bend. Looks pretty weird, but I love 'em. Lots of good hand positions and lots of wrist clearance in the drops. I'm surprised that they're not more popular.

    Before I had a cross bike I used a touring bike instead. Before the touring bike I used my road bike. I still sometimes do.

    ^ what bars are those?

    That's the nicest picture of the cowchipper I've seen. Other pictures don't make it look very flared, but that really shows off the effect on the levers.

    thanks, you really jammed a big tire in that fork! there doesn't look like there's much clearance.

    i just finished building up a SSCX and I want to try a flared bar before i put tape on my current bars which are Cowbell 3's. the Cowchippers are on my short list along with On-One Midge, Soma Junebug, and Origin8 Gary's. right now i'm thinking the Midge, Cowchipper is second.

    I am just not sure what would be best for standing climbs and high torque on the bars that comes with SS? if i set it up with the proper stem i can use the drops for technical single track, just not sure i will like the angled hand placement?

    When I get home I'll take a pic from the rider position. That really shows the flare and I have it set up for out of the saddle climbing and but low enough for one finger braking in the drops. Really like the bar, took a fancy carbon bar off for it

    My experience with a lot of dirt drop bars is that you can't set them up so that you can actually use the hoods. I have tried Midges and Gary II. Most dirt drop bars will require a stuper tall stem or a very flexible rider. I don't know where Cowchippers fit on that spectrum but I am loving my Cowbells for the variety of hand positions.

    It depends what the goal is.

    I find you have to decide what your primary position is (hoods or drops), and then if you're lucky you might be able to use the other one as a backup.

    On my fixie I've got a midge that I ride in the hoods position, and I honestly think it's the comfiest setup ever. But I can still use the drops as a secondary position - for control on descents, or on long flat sections - but I can't spend forever down there.

    (not technically a crossbike, but it sortof looks the part)


    And I've got a true "dirtdrop" mtb with the newer Gary Sweep bar set way higher. There I'm in the drops almost all the time, but the hoods give a bit of a stretched out position for boring sections.

    There's definitely compromises, but they can give you some options.

    That front tire is a life saver on loose and fast singletrack, 700x47 I believe.

    Got a little ambitious on the Fisticuff and hit some Moto shredded single track on the way to work...1x1clyde what front tire is that? I'm looking for a 700xmid 40s tire for the front and rear.

    I have my sights set on some Panaracer GravelKing SKs. 40-43mm inflated, tubeless-ready, not terribly expensive.

    my next choice would be WTB Nano 40mm TCS tires.

    Actually ran a Nano 2.1 on the front of the fisticuff for a few days but I wanted something a bit faster so I threw on a richey speedmax 40c that's on closeout on Jenson for 20 bucks right now. Really want something in the 45-48 range for days when I want to hit single track that always involves a little chunk here in AZ but rolls fast enough on gravel. Price point has some stupidly cheap Vee rubber 29x1.9s that I'll try next. I'm a cheap guy when it comes to tires and for 7 bucks and under 500 grams with a fast rolling tread I'm sold. That fat back tire is a Vee Rubber V10 in 2.10 (they size REALLY small which is why I might like the 1.9) that I got for 12 bucks and it's light and fast enough to do the trick. My rides usually mix in a good amount of pavement so burning up expensive knobbies ain't my thing, in fact I can't recall paying more than 20 for a tire since I started this madness five years ago.

    Thanks for asking on the front tire....it's a lifesaver for this setup

    sorry it took so long but I finally mounted the Vee Rubber V10 up front and got a new V7 for 7 bucks from price point on the back. They both measure just a touch over 1.75 inches at around 40 psi. Makes for a much nicer ride on the rough dirt roads. I might have to stock up on these as the performance and weight for under ten bucks is a steal.

    Not a photo, but a 3 minute video edit of one of the trails in Dupont State Forest in NC from this weekend:

    https://youtu.be/tMcug3YzJzU

    What I love most about my 'cross bike is that I did 20 trail miles in Dupont on Saturday, switched wheelsets, and did a century road ride on Sunday.

    Yeah, I did 30+ miles of hill work on the road and then turned into the local trail system for a few miles of trails. I wouldn't want to beat on my road bike like that.Cross Bikes on Singletrack - Post Your Photos-20160607_073913%5B1%5D.jpg Not quite singletrack but close enough.

    At what point does a cx bike become a drop bar mountain bike? Thinking about putting 1.9s on my cx bike but it seems like that makes it into too close to a mountain bike. I already have a mountain bike so i don't want to be redundant. Why go bigger when 35s do the job? Why choose 35s over 1.9s or 1.9s over 35s?

    For me it really depends on the terrain and what you want to ride your cross bike on. I've found fast rolling 1.9s to be more comfortable and faster on dirt than 35cs, they also allow me to more comfortably include rocky forest roads that are not graded or maintained into my routes. Throw single track into the mix and they are a no brainer. If my rides were more of a mix of well maintained gravel and paved roads I would stick to 35s for lighter weight and faster rolling on pavement. Horses for courses.

    ^ yup. My cross bike sees more offroad time than pavement so the tires reflect that. 35r/40f knobbies on 27mm MTB rims. i hit singletrack, greenway, and pavement only when i have to. I also plan to use this setup for cross racing, so that prevents me from going to a bigger/more aggressive tire.

    if i needed to i would keep a second wheelset with road slicks, which i may do soon for charity road rides and the occasional ride with family or something.

    cross, gravel, monster cross, drop bar MTB, they're all capable of blurring lines and all versatile.

    I run 42c (approx. 1.6") tires for a little bit more offroad traction and cushion on nasty terrain. Its still quick enough on pavement for me. Its like a dual sport bike, does everything good but nothing great. The 42c tires are skinny enough for me as my mountain bikes have 4.0" and 3.0" tires.

    I think 42mm would be a nice compromise. 1.9 would be excessive for the kinds of trails I ride my CX bike. I like taking the CX bikes on long road rides with gravel/singletrack mixed in. if I want to ride gnarly trails, I will ride my mountain bike.

    Well it was much more slidey than I had anticipated. Maybe 33c tyres arn't the best choice for pebbley mtb singletrack.

    Surly products across the board have never been about light weight. if your looking for a grippy, durable tire at and a good value then the 41c Knard is an excellent tire. if your looking for weight weenie tires look elsewhere.
    Rigid SS 29er
    Fat Lefty
    SS MonsterCross
    SS cyclocross
    all steel

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Well I'm 6'3" and heavy so I'm less concerned about weight.

    Ah ok. I've just got the mxp tires and find them very slippery on singletrack. Not super grippy. How are the x'plor?

    So far good. I haven't had them on actual single track yet but they perform well on gravel and dirt and not too bad on pavement. I've had them in just some minor mud but not enough to form an opinion. I'm hoping to try some single track on the bike soon.

    Sope Creek, Marietta, GA

    Picked up this Lemond to use for a commuter, which involves cutting through a National Recreation Area via the Sope Creek Trail. I'd done the top loop several times but today was the first time I did the lower loop.

    I certainly was timid. First time taking it through proper single track. I normally run a Giant Trance or Talon through the same area. I just went a little slow through some heavy rock gardens and walked down one of the vicious downs. Was fun, and climbed better then I thought the 36-28 gear ratio would.

    2016 Ridley X-Night on the Bridal Path via Riverside trail. Mt Seymour. Knocked the front wheel out of true slightly but didn't burp or otherwise come undone. Continued up to Penny Lane and Good Sir Martin singletrack climbing trail.

    Raced my Stuntman at the local mountain bike race series, Over the Hump, this week.
    Always fun to race against a bunch of people on Scalpels and Epics. I ride single track on it all over SoCal, though. With 2.1" Racing Ralphs set up tubeless, it can go pretty much anywhere.

    Nice. There are a lot of things I like about the Stuntman.
