    Post your SSCX!

    Road Bike Review's CX forum has one, but I thought it sad that we don't have a SSCX thread on eMTBeeR.
    Or maybe I just wanted yet another place to post pics of my new bike...
    Anyway, CX season is pretty much over for most of us, but it seems SSers tend to keep riding their CX bikes year 'round instead of hanging them in a temperature- and humidity-controlled cellar to protect their tubulars.
    Here's mine, show me yours!

    Nice! I figured that we'd see a greater diversity of SSCX bikes here than on RoadBikeReview.com.

    Another shot, from the rear. Yes, that is a bottle opener on the non-drive side.

    They are ritchey pro Biomax. They are pretty light and very stiff.



    I cut off the ends of the bar though because I never used them. Its grown on me since I first did it.

    Nice one, looks great. Maybe I should go down that path.

    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.

    It has tensioning screws in the track ends. I haven't had any problems with them. It has a derailleur hanger too if you want to do something weird--like put gears on it

    I actually have an Alfine 11 wheelset sitting here ready to go. Don't have a shifter yet - was going to get Versa VRS-11's, but I'm tempted to wait for Di2 now.

    My new cyclocross commuter! Chromo, SS, simple, cheap and fast as hell. I'm loving it. I have never ridden anything with dropper bars before but I am getting used to it.

    It's the best riding bike in my quiver! Which includes a Vicious Slider, Giant TCX, and a Niner. The hourglass stays do their job well, but the tube diameters keep things stiff laterally. Love it.

    But it's actually a three speed. Tringlespeed? No derailers, though.

    SS/FG (flip flop rear wheel, ridden mostly FG), yeah it's technically a 26" wheel, but it's kind of a monster cross bike I guess. I don't really care, it's fun as hell!

    Does a FGCX qualify
    42/20 gearing seems to be the least wrong in most situations...

    Had this Nature Boy a couple of weeks now. Primarily my daily commuter but I've gotten it dirty a few times too.

    When you find yourself on the side of the majority it's time to pause and reflect.

    Those Nature Boys are really nice bikes. A buddy of mine who works as a mechanic at my LBS has one that he rides just about everywhere. If I didn't already have a Cross-Check built up in a very similar manner, I'd be all over a Nature Boy.
