    Post your 'cross bike

    Now that there's a MTBR forum for this, we need a picture thread! Post your bike, and tell us how you use it.


    Happy 'Cross Bike! by Andrew183, on Flickr

    This is my 2009 Kona Jake. I bought it to race, but I took that picture while I was having suspension trouble and my MTB wasn't ridable. It sees some singletrack time for fun and practice, I've already started doing 'cross workouts for this season on it, and I loan it to friends as a road bike from time to time.

    Mostly stock. Saddle is a recent acquisition, pedals are Time ATACs, the rear wheel is a $34 spoke and rim replacement on the original hub, and the front wheel has an old Shimano LX hub as a replacement for the crappy Formula hub, with original spokes and rim. One crank arm is a replacement, with the wrong finish. Chainwatcher added. And, of course, V-brake pads and holders.

    I take this bike everywhere. Kinda like a CX bike. Except it's fixed. I'm special that way. I built it up around a 1973 Schwinn Le Tour frameset that I found on Craigslist.

    2008 tri cross comp

    I really love this bike I dont race x-cross but really like the versatility of this bike it has been in the woods often and goes every where my mtb has been....loves single track of course does not brake as well as a mtb with hydro brakes and big rubber but makes an old trail new also great for ripping thru road, trail, parks, school lyard, and hydro trail combos

    2007 Rocky Mountain Solo CX


    I use it for multi surface rides (some road, some trail)
    Lots of commuting in the summer.
    Spring / fall road riding, while I wait for trails to dry.
    Sometimes a point to point race in the spring.
    A few cross races / practices in the fall.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Here is my SS, a completely non-stock Bianchi Volpe. This setup is how I raced it, though without the light and with a different saddle. Pictured next is my K2 Enemy in gravel mode, though it is the bike I have had longer and raced on more. I may sell it if I move though. It is a good bike but I've never really been in love with how it fits or handles.

    The volpe is also going on a tour of France and Spain with me in a few weeks, albeit in a completely different configuration.

    EDIT: sorry for the picture weirdness. Not sure how to fix that.

    I got me one o' them cyclo-cross mo-chines



    It does a bit of everything. Commuting, road rides, singletrack. I'm hoping to do my first cross race this fall, and maybe my first tour sometime this winter.

    Entered a cross race last winter and had a blast so I decided to put a bike together on the cheap. Some Craigslist and family deals. About $600.00 bucks later and I got this. Right now I use it to tow the kids trailer around. Will race it this winter.

    Another basic steel do-it-all bike that provides service for anything from centuries, road group rides, CX races and long single track sessions.

    My SS CX bike:


    Since that photo I changed the brakes to Paul Neo Retro's, and ditched the Cane Creek levers for the SRAM ones (liked the shape of the hoods better).

    Do the SRAM levers have a longer hood (kinda like Shimano brake shifters)?

    2009 Redline Conquest Pro

    This picture is the day I brought it home from the bike shop. Love riding singletrack with it but since I got my Mojo HD it's pretty much only being used as a commuter with slicks. I'll get it back out on the trails sometime soon. I'll get a better picture of it later.

    My '01 Gunnar Crosshairs. This was my gateway to dropbars and until recently it was used for everything from road to singletrack. Last year I added a 'real' road bike and the Gunnar now primarily sees singletrack, cx races and the occasional ride to the pub.

    From the a local race a few weeks ago:

    Here's my new 2012 Giant TCX. It should be ~17 lbs when built with race wheels (DT Swiss RRC 46 tubulars). Ready to go tear it up in the Pro/1/2s!

    They definitely extend longer than the Cane Creek ones. I have Shimano road levers on my road bike and loved how the hoods felt. The Cane Creek ones felt very wide and bulky at the base and then taper to almost a point. Didn't like riding with those very much. The SRAM is much closer to the Shimano's. The shape has been way more comfortable! Hope this helps.

    no. she rides a 52 and i ride a 54 so frames are not the same (differences on the mtb are taken up by different stems/seatposts).

    other than that they are the same... though it isn't necessarily required as we aren't planning to travel far from home during CX season. caveat being that might change if her power/speed comes around significantly.

    i don't think we will do CX nationals in any case because we have **no fricking clue** how to race in -1000 degree arctic conditions.

    Andrw what size are you riding? I'm hung up between get a 49cm or a 52cm. My road bike is a medium Giant Defy Advanced 2. It has a 54.5cm top tube. The Kona 49 cm has a 53cm TT, the 52 cm has a 54.1cm TT. I'm thinking the 52cm would be a better fit?

    Mine's a 52. I think the idea of downsizing for 'cross is misguided, provided a cyclist's road bike actually fits him in the first place. I do run a smaller stem and less drop than I think I would on a road bike. But, only by one stem size and flipped up vs. flipped down.

    The one trap is that different seat tube angles can mess up a top tube comparison.

    On these cross bikes that are running 130mm BCD cranksets... what size chain rings are you running? I was thinking 44/38. Does this sound normal?

    Sorry for the OT. Some beautiful bikes in here.

    I'm currently running a 38t ring on my 130mm TruVativ BCD with an outer guard. I've run the 44/38 combo before and it's a great set-up IMO for doing anything and everything. I've dropped to the 1x10 as I'm only doing limited races this season that are slower/dirt oriented courses and trail rides which will be fine.

    Even has "my" pedals. You should ship it to me.

    My nicer bike is a Lemond Buenos Aires. '99 model - so an all steel frame, and carbon fork. Kickass bike.

    How do you like the Ranier? I found a shop that has a frame in my size that never sold. Handling? Ride? Weight? It would be my race bike.

    Thanks for the compliments on the cross check. I hope to have it completed for the five-boro next year.

    I really like how clean that bike is. What kind of frame is it?

    I believe it to be a Pake C'Mute, but Dion please correct me if I am wrong.

    Nice to see so many singlespeeds.
    I was thinking of racing a 1x9





    but after the announcement of this

    the gears are coming off. I'll update it when done (gluing a tire on my ss wheel, different right brake lever, new bar tape).

    Masi Speciale CX Uno 2011 - apparently the last 2011 available (at least the last 53cm).

    This is my first CX bike and the first bike I've had since I was a kid. Don't know why I waited so long! Everything is stock at the moment but definitely planning some mods.

    I changed a few things on my bike. First, for all y'all asking what the frame is, it is a Pake' C'Mute. I wrote 3 reviews on this bike and my first one made the Pake website. For the few that actually read my blog used my review(s) to make their purchase. Therefore, Pake owes me a t-shirt for free marketing

    The changes:

    1) Had my old Ultegra triple that I turned into a double 38/30. The 30T is a bit small, so I may change that in the future. The 38T made a HUGE difference. Nice change from the 34T single ring I've had up front since I originally built the bike.

    2) Truvativ T40 flat bar cut to 675mm.

    For all those who don't know, I am a former freestyle BMX'er (trick rider). The Vision Street Wear head tube sticker is an homage to those days, and, well... the top cap says it all. I will be a BMX'er (at least in spirit) for the rest of my life. RAMP UP THE JAWN!

    I love all these bikes! The only thing missing is lugged steel disc race bike. Peregrine is close but not quite. I think its a little heavy, and the bottom bracket is eccentric and not lugged, i think. Steel is real!

    Homegrown Bicycles Frame

    This is my new frame built by HomeGrown Bicycles out of Nashville, TN. Great to work with a local builder that I could drink beer with. Paint is by Joe Bicycle Painting out of Cali.

    Many years ago I converted my wife's '06 Sirrus to drop bars. This is what it normally looks like, not a cross bike:



    Today I swapped some parts around so I could lend the Sirrus to a friend so he can enter a local CX race this weekend. Aside from the brake cable routing, I think it should work fairly well:



    The saddle and seat post are borrowed off of my 29er, the wheels are the originals that came with the Sirrus, and the tyres are some old 32/30mm Speedmaxes from my cross bike. I also swapped the brake control from 'American' to 'rest-of-the-world'.

    Is that the nashbar fork on the airborne? I need a disc fork to convert my fuji cross comp to disc. How do you like it?

    Sure is. It's been great. It's handled CX racing and fast singletrack mtb'ing on moderate mtb trails. I've almost come to think of it as bomb-proof for anything CX-related and moderate mtb'ing.

    Very cool bike. The paint scheme is actually a Merckx deal, he made the 7-11 frames. He also did Motorola's and Telekoms frames and they are styled the same in blue/red and pink/black.

    Thanks! I don't know much about the 7-11 history. All I know is that this builder also built the bike for Andy Hampsten, the one he rode at the Giro a long time ago.

    And at 7-11, people can still get their favorite Slurpees.

    It's more or a bastardized cross/ 96er I plan to use it as my city crevasse commuter and fire trail bike. it was a city mountain bike before with risers.

    Not the best photo, but here's my Jamis Nova Pro. I stripped it down to the frame last year, and added the following:

    SRAM Rival drivetrain
    AVID Ultimate brakes
    Alpha Q CX20 Fork
    Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels
    Challenge Grifo tires
    3T bar, stem, and post

    It's right at 19 pounds.

    It rides pretty good now, although I am researching custom steel and Ti options.

    This is "Sweaty Betty" my fixed gear mountain bike. I will be racing cross and losing tomorrow on it.

    Did a quickie job polishing the 1992 deore cranks. They look okay now...

    Note the front derailleur. It is necessary to keep the chain from jumping off under heavy frame flex.

    Peace and grease!

    Finally finished building my Yeti ARC-X. Full Sram Red (with exception of PC-1070 Cassette), ENVE cockpit and wheels. Seatpost is Ritchey until ENVE sends me new one at the end of the month (they're back ordered). Better pics coming shortly - this was on my camera phone. First ride will be at USGP New Belgium Cup tomorrow.

    Since the original build (top) I have upgraded to Veloce Ultra shift ergopowers, switched out the stock Deda ergo bend bars (25mm) for Deda's version of variable radius (31.8m) in a 46cm, got a Fulcrum big ring to replace the one I bent crashing, made a custom 12-27t cassette from a 12-25 and 2 Miche cogs, and switched from Schwalbe Marathon Crosses for Maine to a Marathon Racer/Plus combo for TN commuting.

    Thanks - I'm pretty pumped to ride it. Don't know the weight. It's light though. Will probably weigh it after the USGP races. Put new chainrings on as well today.

    My new Scattante



    I bought this frame from Performance for $270. Took the shifters, wheels, bar/stem, cranks, chain, cassette, and rear der. off my old Trek 5200. Added some Time pedals and cantilevers and a couple of tires that Blue Sky had for $12 each. Haven't weighed it, but I am guessing it is somewhere around 20 pounds.

    Got the bike completed last Thursday. Rode it 2 hours Thursday and then drove it to PA for Iron Cross.

    I wish they would come up with a better name than "Scattante." That kind of sounds like something the cat would hack up.

    PS - anybody want an old Trek 5200 frame cheap?

    My Yeti Race rig

    Yeti Arc-X, custom paint, mullett setup. I made the adaptors over the winter last year. Front fork is a 26MTB fork from Trigon, would rather have a straight blade fork, i am sure one will be out in the near future and i will swap it over.

    Dont mind the stem, it is a butchered unit that i was only using for sizing and such, it has a nice new clean Uno white stem on it now, bike weighs about 17.5 lbs in race trim

    Upgrades from a prior post. Added the Reynolds wheelset with Mud 2's, some xtr pedals, and a specialized toupe ti seat. Dropped about a pound. If I can go to a Force crank will drop another 1/2 lb. So far loving the new look.

    I'm just learning about Cyclocross so I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but I see that disc brakes are allowed in racing events so why are there only a few bikes here that have them? Aren't they (disc) better for the mud and muck?

    Yes, in my opinion, tons better than Canti's, last year was the first year UCI allowed them, companies are just starting to come out with adaptors and such for hydraulic discs, Some of the big companies Shimano, SRAM are working on hydro units in the brifters but probably wont be out till next year.

    Mechanicals seem to work well, but not a lot of frames come with disc tabs yet. Specialized, Stevens and the chinese are starting to come out with new bikes with MTB 135mm rear spacing to use 29er rims and such. I think in another year or two you will see more disc cross bikes than Canti. That being said, a lot of old school cross racers do not like the disc idea and the fact that realistically you cannot share wheels with your road bike is not helping, it increases the cost of a grass roots sport significantly.

    kinda the reason i went mullett, i only use the rear for trail braking, so i just need to scrub a little speed and the Canti achieves that. Front disc hauls my fat butt down really quick and modulates wonderfully, i can also pull the disc off the front and have a road wheel set, since i use standard road 130mm rear hubs.

    A little long but i hope i answered your question. And of course this is all my opinion, i happen to love the disc option for cross, but i am in the minority....for now.

    I think we'll see more and more 'cross bikes with disc brakes now that it's legal.

    It's not too hard to lock up the wheels on a 'cross bike. But I think I get better control with disc brakes, so if I could have some little 140mm mechanical disc brakes on my 'cross bike without throwing a whole bunch of money at it, I'd take them. It's nice that the wheels interchange with my road bike, but meh. Especially if I used rims with braking surfaces. I bet the spacing goes to 135mm, though - unless some big companies decide they really want the standard to stay 130, the availability of tons and tons of nice mountain bike hubs will probably make that decision.

    Nope.

    However, our sources tell us the initial brakes will be mechanical, not hydraulic, and the MY2012 levers won't be hydraulic-ready.

    I know this Voodoo Nakisi has a flat bar attached but soon to be a drop bar. Super fun with the flat bar however weighing in at 22lbs with the pedals attached. this is a 58cm. Why isn't there more people riding these?

    Um... dealer network? My 'cross bike came as a complete. I was racing it a couple of days after purchase. I've chipped away at the build since then, but honestly, I can't imagine buying anything but completes when getting a bike for a new discipline. If I don't know how to choose parts, I may as well get a better deal.

    just finished the build this weekend. swooped the frame on ebay, and took the group and wheels of my road bike. didn't realize the frame had pearl-ish paint until i pulled it out of the box. still have the 50/34t up front, waiting until next paycheck to get the 46t.

    Hello everyone,
    Just bought my first cyclocross bike, a Cannondale CADX 105 size 51. It is a perfect size for me (my height is 5" 10") but I'm getting toe overlap when doing a tight turn. Is this normal on cyclocross bike? I had the bike properly fitted at my LBS.

    Thank you for any advice.

    ^^ Pulsarxxx yeah toe overlap on the smaller frames is normal, you just have to learn to ride around it which will become natural after a couple weeks. I'm 5'8" on a 51 Caadx as well, red one above, and could have probably ridden a 54. Setup with a 130 stem and 25 setback seatpost but I like the smaller frame. Post some pics man!

    If the above is not a misprint then I believe you got ripped off. My OPINION is that they sold you a bicycle that is too small for you. I don't think the toe overlap is normal, Unless you're running a 29er tire ala monstercross.

    Yup. You would just have to buy brakes in addition to frameset.

    Nah, I'm 6'2'' and ride a 56 CAADX, I get a little toe overlap as well. I like a smaller frame with a long stem to keep the front wheel firmly planted in turns. I also run a crazy amount of drop for a cross bike. Bike probably fits him fine.

    Here's mine. It's "cheap", but it's fast! It's a Schwinn Avenue I got from a neighbor's yard sale. I put a stem riser, fixed stem, road bar, and toe clips on it. The bike was a lot of fun stock (Walmart hybrid, $240 new), but I like it better with the road/ CX set up. I like the Kenda Kourier tires a lot. The stock freewheel was pretty lame, so I put a MegaRange 34t on it. The bailout gear saves a lot of chain ring shifting.

    I guess it really is subjective! 51c just seems small to me & I'm the same height (5'10").

    Thank you for your advice Crosstown. I tried the next size (54cm), way too big for me. Couldn't figure out the Cadx geometry but size 51 is just right.

    Must have looked through this thread and the one on RBR 20 times trying to decide what CX bike to get. For the types of rides I have in mind, disc brakes were mandatory so I ended up getting the 2012 Specialized Crux Apex Comp. I wish they sold the higher-end Crux models with disc brakes.

    First ride yesterday and I know it's going to give me thousands of miles of fun! I don't often seek the mud and puddles but was doing that yesterday

    Parts Bin Special

    Old 90's GT Tequesta I saved from the landfill. Ditched the original fork and found a generic cr-mo rigid, converted it and the frame to 700c by grinding off the brake bosses and re-welding higher up. Original cranks running 42t chainring 1x3 (up/down/flat gears) with Rohloff chain guide and friction shifting of a Shimano 200 derailleur. I mix and match the sprockets for different courses. Ditched the flats this season for spd 520's. Total out-of-pocket costs <$30

    I got my cross check to where I can ride it. I'm not finished with the build, but I love this bike.
    I put in 2 hours of road time today give or take and this bike is plush!

    My Traitor Crusade, strictly fixed only. Bit out of focus, though.

    Built this one up for the race season, but now relegated for all-riding, this bike is alot of fun I must say. I can now do big loops with road, dirt, mountain, road, gravel, single track all in one ride.

    The dornbox frame looks really nice! I bet it isn't the lightest thing in the world but it probably rides like a dream!

    I've posted this in the 29er forum as well, I had hoped to do some low key 'Cross races with it. But, mainly ride dirt, gravel and pavement around town. Steel Rock Lobster, I had stripped down and powder coated. The other pic is my daughter and her single speed R/L she rode in a local 'Cross race here.

    Here is my 2012 Norco CCX3 with upgraded disc brakes (Avid BB7) from the factory, they were supposed to be spec'd with Promax brakes but had some problems so the first batch was built with the BB7's.

    That's a great upgrade on the brakes.

    How are you liking that beast? I work at a Trek shop and I'm looking at getting an Ion CX Pro frameset and building it up with a Force gruppo. I've been on the fence about what frame I want to get.

    Already made a few additions to my new Norco.

    Took off the dork disc, added a wireless speedo with cadence, a Pedros seat bag made from old tubes, and a WTB Rocket V seat, bottle cages, a mini pump. I also installed a set of my tried and true eggbeaters.









    If the weather works out I'll be able to take it for a ride this weekend!!!!

    Haha not commuting, I'm an evil SUV driver. I have been getting some (fitness) rides in though on these stupidly cold wet days! Bar mitts and lots of wool help, but only a little.

    Great fork - it made such a difference on Specialized Sirrus (turned into high speed commuter bike). Looks great, feels good, got one cheap (regret not buying 2 - for other bike).

    Don't lie to justify your shitty mudfest you call a race course.

    That was not fun and you know it.
