|cyclo-x for single track||10|
Aug 11, 2001 1:54 PM
i've recently been considering selling my two mtbs and my old road bike and get myself a nice cx. it would be used for commuting, road riding (no racing) and off roading. however, i can't help to be sceptic about how it performs in the dirt, especially on single track. one thing to consider is that i live in sweden and our single track can get quite technical. also, most of my riding would be well suited for a cx, but i'd still like to single track from time to time.
so, can anyone shed some light on this subject?
thanks in advance!

|If you are looking for speed on tough singletrack a cross bike is not a good choice. If your singletrack has a lot of drops and big rocks it can be a challange.Its much tougher on the upper body with no susp. What is great is clearing a tough section in front of a group of MTBs, the look you get from them is worth the extra effort. :-)|
