    Cross Bikes on Singletrack - Post Your Photos-015.jpg

    This is on the Rollie Pollie Trail at the Desert Trails Bike Park in Mesa AZ. I had to ride it, it's named after my fitness level.
    I need to ride more...

    Took my Crossrip out to the Knot outside Sumter SC. It was a full workout but a fun ride as well.

    I just rode today on singletrack, actually I do it almost every ride. At first you think "nah" then you're like "yeah!" It's flat addictive

    FLAT ADDICTION!? you must be running some extremely low pressures! Have you thought about rehab(tubeless)? Do you need an intervention?

    I was riding by myself, so no action shots. My first ride I was on Stans Raven 35c, which really was not enough tire. So I switched to Specialized Trigger 38c Rear and Specialized Renegade 29 x 1.8 (measure out to 44c on my Crossmax) front. With that setup it is really awesome on singletrack.

    How do those stock tires ride in dirt? I've been itching to get my new Crossrip Elite out on some trails, but seeing as I have never ridden even a MTB on trails, it makes me hesitant and I have heard bad things about those Bontrager Hardcases...

    Sweet ride, though!

    I've ridden road bikes on dirt quite a bit, and it's pretty fun. You get used to sliding around and it happens at a slower speed than it would on a mountain bike. Since you've never ridden a mountain bike the steering won't seem too quick.

    Last fall I tried to do Fat Cyclist's 100 Miles of Nowhere on all of my bikes in a tiny little off road area. I started out with my two road bikes and rode around 17 miles each on them. When I got on my cross bike with knobby tires it made a huge difference in how hard I could corner and traction when climbing. So I would say people saying bad things about Hardcases's off road abilities are probably correct. But I would try it out and if you like riding on trails put some cross tires on.

    I second the go ahead and ride with them. I learned to ride off road on slicks and it was a blast.

    Just be reeeeeallllyy careful in any wet/slick areas. My shoulder and neck had an unfortunate (but thankfully low velocity) encounter with a tree when I was riding slick tires and wasn't so careful.

    The 40c in the front provides next level grip which allowed me to descend trails I'd never would have considered with smaller/narrower tires. CX sure keeps it real.

    Thanks. If yours have tread on them they are ok. mine in the photo had about 900 miles on them and more or less road slicks so it made it a good bit more challenging with no grip on the climbs.

    My bike is more of a road bike with clearance for very big tires, but it looks like a normal road bike lately.

    Went downtown to eat lunch with my brother, part of the ride as usual is on dirt. Maybe not true singletrack in width but I did several deep mud crossings, some minor roots and rocks, etc. I have 3 bikes, but my CX is the go to 'out the front door' ride.

    Here is a picture of last Sundays ride. The ride was about 30 miles with about 10 miles of single track. The Skyline trail up here in Big Bear Lake, Ca is the newest trail built here, it goes from east to west with an average elevation of 7500'

    From a small park, out by my house. Typical AZ terrain, for the Phoenix area. Rode from my doorstep, to the park, did a couple of laps on the singletrack, then rode back home.

    In Ellwood Mesa on the cyclocross commute. Technically putting a post in the middle of trail doesn't make it singletrack, but there is a lot of singletrack on Ellwood Mesa and I like the look of this chute.

    The bike industry is banging on about + size wheels, so here's me playing out on my 29- on our regular Wednesday evening ride. I'm not going to win any Oscars for editing but I hope you enjoy!

    Touring bike on singletrack? Closest thing I have to a cross bike at the moment. Actually rides nicely in the dirt and rocks.

    I rode my touring bike a lot on cyclocross terrain before I got a cyclocross bike. I didn't get knobby tires for it, just relied on how much the size of the tires helped. Low bottom bracket height is the biggest drawback.

    Cross Bikes on Singletrack - Post Your Photos-other-trail.jpgBeen riding the cross bike exclusively while recovering from a broken leg back in March. No racing for me this season but it's nice to get out and spin around. I've been exploring the trail network at some of the local parks and doing some road riding- Trails like these are super fun on skinny tires, really twisty and smooth except for some roots.....seems like a good way to get back in shape
