    o hai, I did this a few weeks ago on my Crux Pro! Love these bikes.

    Here's a shot of my Pro geared up on Heil after riding the Wapiti / Ponderosa Loop. It is... rocky, I think would be the operative term. And steep. Definitely makes you pay attention. I would NOT do this on a canti cross bike, no way. I got a lot of badass points from the MTB guys who were out there that day, although it's not ultra technical, it is pretty rough in spots. And the climb/descent section is very long and steep in spots.

    Also including a bonus shot of my new SS out at the local bike park, which was made moderately famous by virtue of running Natz there last January. There's nothing like hucking a pair of skinnies through the pump track to make the baggy-pants crew get all googly-eyed.

    ^ I love taking my cross bike to my local bike park! It's actually where I do a lot of my practice, and I do love all the shred gnar gnar boys giving me looks as I ride through them and drop down the drop lines on my Crux! They just added a pump track, but I haven't tried it yet. Next up will probably be trying a loop of Stone Temple Circuit at Curt Gowdy... I know there will be some stuff that will have to be walked, but otherwise I think it'll be rather doable.

    I would love to ride more singletrack with my Crux Pro. I think next summer I'll do more - CX season officially starts this weekend and we're pretty committed through mid January at this point.

    If I do more wild rides on the geared, I will also give serious consideration towards getting it a Type 2 (clutched) rear mech tho, because listening to the chain rattle off the stays is maddening after several years of silence from my MTBs in that regard.

    I have the SRAM CX1 rear derailleur on a 1x10 set up, and it's definitely awesome out on rough terrain! I was kind of thrown off by how quiet my cross bike is now. Now I just need to sort out the chain ring... went with a 40t with 11-32 cassette, and I think it'll be ok at most cross races, but it got a bit tough on some of my mountain bike trails. Might throw a 38t on there instead.

    BTW, I'm pretty sure I know who you are... did you do the Candelas circuit race in the ice in March?

    I did indeed! That was me on the Crux, the only road podium (ha!) I've managed in years

    Here's one from Colorado a couple weeks ago. I rode up McClure pass before the USA Pro Challenge came through, but was early, so I kept going up the fire road on the pass until I found this singletrack...

    Wow. That's beautiful. Kind of looks like where my dad's people are from, Great Dismal Swamp area, eastern North Carolina.

    Is that even a trail, or are just riding through a meadow?

    A bit hard to see in this pic but it's a trail that follows the bluff for a few km. The part that I'm on is on the edge and not too beaten down as people play it safe and ride the single track 30 feet away from the edge.

    What size is that back tire? Looks like a pretty cool setup.

    This was more like a bombed out jeep road but it was more technical than a lot of the singletrack I've ridden so I'm counting it! (pretty sure I dipped my bottom bracket in a couple of the mud holes, and there were some fun rocks to negotiate)

    A lot like Alexcuse it's more like a bombed out jeep trail, but several really rocky areas that make it a hell of a lot of fun going down and a hell of a lot of work going back up.

    From this mornings spin, rode some trails I normally MTB. Harder on cross but fun and makes the ones that are boring on MTB more interesting.

    Cross Bikes on Singletrack - Post Your Photos-crosslakecarneros.jpg

    Picture from Saturday's failed attempt at 100 Miles of Nowhere (Fat Cyclist). Attempted to ride 100 miles off-road at Lake Los Carneros Park in Goleta CA on 7 different bikes. It was nice to get on the cross bike after the two road bikes, you can really feel how much better it works than 700x25c slicks. My knee blew up and I only made it 57 miles.

    Yeah, I know this doesn't really count, but these photos got me hooked! Not exactly a cross bike or on singletrack, but close? 26" Trek 3500 frame with Bontrager Race 29er wheels, 35cm Club Roost Cross Terra tires. Drop bars are on the way! Not a super lightweight, 24.9 lbs as it sits now.

    I miss fall. Santa Barbara doesn't really have seasons. It might rain from October to May but that is about it.

    True! I'm near Riverside, CA. The year-round riding is great as is the scenery, but it would be nice to have some seasons here, instead of just the one.

    As much as a pain it is to go from winter tires to summer, shoveling snow to raking leaves to mowing the lawn, it sure makes for a lot of fun weather to ride in!

    I didn't ride the concrete thing in the background - I didn't have a helmet and the last time I tried it on my cross bike I went off to the right (maybe a 3 foot drop to jagged rocks) and bent my derailleur hanger. Probably narrowly missed severe head/neck trauma also, had to basically torpedo my helmet into the rocks to take the impact
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    This isn't singletrack, but it was on the way to some. Junction of Buckhorn and Camuesa Canyon roads in Los Padres National Forest near Santa Barbara.

    But the single track was barely walkable, just after this point I lost the trail, thrashed around for about an hour, and then just retraced my route.
