    Saturday morning while drinking my coffee, and trying to decide what and where to ride. I came across this thread and well I have this cross bike that I got 4 days ago, so I decided to ride my new cyclocross bike to the trail where my wife and son are to meet me. 26 road miles 12 off road miles. It was a good day on the bike. Good thread, keep it going.

    I need to get some pictures next time I take the cross bike out. I have a standard issue Cross Check that I regularly ride on the local trails. Picking the best line keeps you on your toes and the canti brakes take getting used to on a tight descending switchback.

    Those tires look huge! What are they and what size are they? I see it's a GT, what model it is?

    I'm liking the cross bike on singletrack. My latest

    I'm not digging the bar, I am going to replace it with a Salsa Woodchipper.

    First Real CX Trail Ride

    This was my first all trail ride on the Cross Check. I was surprised at all the places I could go.

    Oh, this thread. She warms the cockles of my heart. (And my cockles, they frequently need warming. Oh, yes indeed.)

    When I started this thread, I expected to get a few responses, but I thought it'd grind out pretty quickly. It's awesome to see it going strong, and I love seeing everybody getting rad in the dirt on skinny tires.

    I haven't posted in a while 'cause I just recovered from an ankle injury. Hopefully I'll have something to contribute soon.

    Now, hows abouts some moar action shots?

    Love this thread! Not an action shot but I have been doing some local single track, gravel path and road combination rides in the Philly suburbs. Probably hit Nockamixon next to see how she does:

    Inspiring thread. I NEEDED to find this!

    After restoring this bike last fall, I took these cell phone pictures on my first (and so far, only) good, long, single track ride. (Sorry, no action shots.) The following day, the trails were covered by a foot and a half of snow, and they haven't been clear since. I can't believe how fun and nimble a bike like this was, on trails that had become a bit too familiar on a regular mountain bike. The bonus part of this ride was the fact that the 10 mile road ride at the end, required to loop back to the trailhead parking, was MUCH quicker than usual. Another month or less, and the trails should finally be clear again... and I can't wait to get out on it again. It's the only bike I daydream about riding right now - so I'm happy to see others doing the same.

    there's no other word for saying that, germany.
    some time ago there was a sswc nearby and in the course of that, i think it was gary fisher, who rode there too. and i've been told he liked it very much.
