    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    So, is racing cross (never raced cross myself) on a SS more or less of a factor than in the mtb world. In other words, is it less of a big deal with regards to fitness and being able to compete with the geared guys?

    I know the climbing around here tends to be less in a CX race than an mtb race.

    Ideas?

    Also, are disc brakes allowed in all CX races now?

    I am a relatively novice racer with just one season under my belt but my impression is that running SS is not much of a disadvantage depending on the course. We had 2 weeknight race series here in town and one of the courses was flat with relatively few obstacles. There, running a SS was much tougher because the boys and girls with gears could plow you on the straights. The other course was a bit more technical with more off camber, more tight turns and a little bit of single track. There, running a SS was much less of a disadvantage, in fact some people ran better on SS than geared. From my limited experience the climbs tend to be short and steep so as long as you can muscle up them or run up them you will be fine

    Discs have been allowed in all the races except the UCI races. Recently, however, that ban has been lifted and are now legal in the UCI races.

    Wow, what a cool bike in black. Looks like a sensible year round training/gravel path bike especially with discs. From where did you order yours from if you don`t mind me asking? Currently I have a Miyata Triplecross which don`t really cut it anymore for a number of reasons.

    ya, i really like the black. i probably would have ordered that if it was an option when i ordered the orange one. i do like the orange though, and i didn't have an orange bike in the quiver so it fits nicely.

    it is a nice training/gravel/commuter that's for sure. i ordered the orange one at a LBS that sells raleigh. not sure where the black one came from.

    What is your three speed setup? I wouldn't mind two more gears myself, for the hills.

    Another NB Zona

    Finally finished my Nature Boy about a month ago and I absolutely love it. The Brooks wasn't quite right for me on this bike, so I switched it to a Selle Italia something or other. A few changes to make at some point, but I'm enjoying it.

    I never got on well with the big ol' B17. I find the narrower Professional or Swift fits me better.
    However, I'm putting a cheap saddle on mine for 'cross season- just not willing to risk a Ti railled Swift!

    Heh, yep I got a pretty good deal on the hubs, but bought the MiniMoto's right after they came out, which was a bit painful at full price... however, I do like them and they fit the classy look of the frame nicely. It took me about six months to buy all the parts, it was well worth it though.

    I've tried to use the B17 on several bikes and have been disappointed that it hasn't worked out. I bought the mens one on the advice from other ladies, after having horrible luck with their women's saddles, but it's still too wide (although better). The saddle I have on the nature boy now is a narrower women's one and is much more comfortable

    What gear ratio are you all running? I'm considering a SS build and not sure what to start with. I already have a 20t ENO freewheel off another bike I'm not using, suggestions for front? Thanks for any info!

    Well, I'm using a 42x16 right now, but will probably put a 17 or 18t on for the season. I'm moving, so I want to get a feel for the courses before I decide.
    42x18 is kind of classic CX gearing. To get an equivalent gear, you'll need a 46t ring. However, look at what the 1 speed guys in your local races are running. If the courses where you are are really fast, with little sand, mud, or climbs, you might want to gear up. Conversely, if they're technical courses, you might go down a bit.

    My Crosscheck, 39x18 right now. Thinking about bumping to a 42 up front...planning on using it at the weekly cx race series coming up soon.

    My offering. I built the frame in my buddy's shop, and pieced it together with **** I had laying around, hence the bastard title. It's a blast to ride. Super fast and smooth as a prom queen's thighs. Experimenting with the flat bars right now. Really liking it.



    Calmer'n you are.

    in 'need' of some upgrades, new wheels on the way soon hopefully to replace the current boat anchors. I'm sure new wheels will dramatically improvement my next race placement

    Trek X01. Not sure of the year. Just added 40c Ritchey Max's. Really helped out the ride quality.

    I'll be sticking with a 40X17 until I get an eno hub. The only cross race I did last year was promotion cross here in Lexington, ky.

    Should be solid. I heard 39x17 was okay but a touch small on the flat sections. I think Im gonna run 38x16 unless its muddy.

    Just finished putting my Cotic Roadrat together for a bit of cross use this winter.

    It's the SS flat bar 'Rat which has just been fitted with Magura MT4 hydraulic discs and a set f Schwalbe Racing Ralph's.
    it's currently running 45x18 but when the new chain arrives on Monday it'll be getting converted to a more friendly 39x18.
    I'll have to get some pictures up tomorrow!

    34/40 up front, and a 16/19 White Industries freewheel in the back (with a 16t fixed cog on the flip side).

    The CC's long dropouts can take up up to 6 teeth of cog difference, hence the 6 tooth chainring difference. I can run 34/16, 34/19, and 40/16 (40/19 uses up too much chain) I have to run a half link to make this work, though. Otherwise, the 40/16 ends up being too short and not able to get clamped in the dropout.

    1982 Trek Cyclocross SS

    Just finished this project:
    Surly Track Fixed/Free hubs on double wall rims
    Shimano 600 Cranks
    TRP EuroX Cantilevers
    Old steel SP seatpost
    Selle Saddle
    Salsa Stem- 1inch and used an 1 1/8 in to 1 in adapter to use thread-less
    Threaded Headset
    Deda Bars
    Lizard Skins Tape
    Cane Creek single speed levers
    Maxxis Tires
    I took older Trek frame that i had been riding around as a commuter to a local frame builder and had him braze on canti bosses, extra bottle mounts, and STI mounts because i plan to tour on it this summer. I had the clearance for larger tires because originally this frame was meant for larger 27" wheels so when i downsized to 700c. I can now run fenders, and large tires thanks to this. Enjoy!

    More of a monstercross I guess in current set up. Had to trim the side knobs to make the 2.0 Mud X's fit.

    Monstercrossed Cross=Checks are a blast!
    I had some IRC Mythos' on mine for a while, definitely had to break out the nippers on some of the knobs on the rear, though.
