    Action shot from yesterday from the final race of my local series. (I won the day in SS A's, which gave me the overall season title in SS A's). My time in yesterday's race would have gotten me 4th place in the geared Elite's.

    Have been loving the Felt with the Beer Components adapter.

    I was seriously considering a Zona, and when I went to purchase one the shop had a large Crusade in stock. I asked what it would cost to order one for me and the rest is history. The price was great, so I went for the traitor. I think the Zona (your year specifically) looks better, but this grade of tubing for $599 was too good to pass up.

    Wow! Indeed!
    I really like the "Smoky and the Bandit" paint job, but that's a great price for the Crusade.

    Nice to see Belgian bar plug ends and what appears to be a sweet IRS-equipped Baja Bug in the same photo. Oh, and your On-One CX bike is nice! Watcha got for a motor and transaxle in that puppy?

    That pompino is nice!

    I wish On-One would make a matching straight-blade, segmented cx fork to go with their segmented seatstays.

    As soon as I saw that bike, I knew it looked familiar. I talked to you in the parking lot of the sports complex last w/e. The bike looks as cool in person as it does in the photos. Nice rig!

    Hey all,
    I'm building a belt drive SS CX bike. What gear are you running? Is your rear hub freewheel? SS cassette? Geared Cassette? I'm worried about the chain (belt) line.

    Tektro Mini-Vs are awesome in every way except they don't have vertical clearance for a fender in front, so I'm considering canti brakes. Otherwise, it's quickly becoming my favorite mixed terrain bike :-)

    There are some awfully sexy bikes in this thread. I have been contemplating the ss conversion on mine and this certainly is motivating me to take the plunge...particularly after destroying my rear derailleur on my last ride. Just need to figure out a gear I can live with for my typical ride that include road, gravel, dirt, and some singletrack.

    Post your SSCX!

    I just took delivery of a 2013 Rocky Solo CX. Use it to commute to work. Why a CX and not a road bike or a 29er? This trail is about 30% if the ride (though only about 15% is single track) the rest is typical marginally-maintained roads.
    Still figuring out the shifters but so far loving it.

    I live in NY but have been to Asheville last summer and I love it there. I stopped into Liberty Bike to get some maps and enquire as to where to mtn bike.

    Going to bike around Harrisonburg VA next month and hoping to get back to Asheville in the fall.

    My wife was born in Yonkers, raised in the Catskills. Loads of good riding there and here. SS guys have to be pretty strong in both places. I have gears. 'Nuff said :P

    Never ridden much in VA, except a gang of us rode the VA Creeper end-to-end about 10 years ago on what I'd now consider an All-Mountain bike. 1% grade in soggy gravel on 2.5s. Even downhill, it was pretty miserable.

    We live just north of Yonkers and our favorite place to ride is Stewart Forest in Newburgh. It's long flowing single track perfect for an older rider like myself with a FS 29er.

    We did ride Bent Creek when in Asheville and next time we want to try Dupont.

    <Q>I've been hunting a steel, disc SSCX frameset for a long time now. Was hoping for vertical dropouts and some sort of tensioning system but I think it's time to give up on that dream and go with horizontal dropouts.</q>
    These were my sentiments exactly until I found the forthcoming Traitor Crusade. It's going to make the ideal single speed CX bike IMHO. Can't wait until August...

    Still a nice bike, but you’ve got to do something about that gearing… as in, get rid of the cassette, for starters.

    My Major One set up for an early spring gravel grinder. For 'cross season obviously it loses the bag and bottles. Also, gearing goes down to 42:18 so my legs don't explode!

    Quick question for all of you that race sscx, what gearing are you running? I live in New England and just bought a complete NB Zona. It has 42-17 and seems a bit tough on hills. I have yet to race, but know this combo will be tough. What gearing are you all running? I'm thinking of swapping out to a 39t, with a 17 or 18 in the back. I'll post pics too.

    I don't race. But I do live in New England. I'm running a 39-19 and it's great for gravel roads with good climbs and singletrack.

    42/17 would be tough, try a 20 on the rear cog and see how that feels.

    I do have a ss mtb and also run a 32-20. I'm trying a 39-17 and 18 to see how that feels. I may also pick up a 19 as I love riding cross bikes on single track. Thanks!

    Last season I raced 42x16 in my first race in Boise. Way too tall. So I went back to what I used 10 years before in Colorado- 42x18 which worked ok.
    Building up my new bike I decided to try a smaller gear. I'm starting the season 39x18.
    I think for some of our courses I'll put the 16t on.
    If you don't have a lot of flat, fast sections on race day I'd definitely go 39t.
