It's my first CX race of the season tomorrow. Up in Yorkshire, there have already been a couple of rounds, but they've clashed with other commitments.
I'm not sure if my legs are quite ready for the shock of riding as fast as possible for an hour. They've spent the last 8 months concentrating on keeping turning for 24 hours or more. I'm game for a laugh/cry though.
Now, Mikey is very traditional in his views. Cyclocross bikes should have cantis. I've come to 'cross via mountain biking. It's around 10 years since I first used disc brakes. There are a lot of benefits to them. Not all directly apply to a genre that simply needs a bit of speed reduction here and there, but many do. It also provided me with a nice opportunity to buy a new bike, and who can argue with the desire for nice shiny new things?
Enter the Kinesis Pro 6
I'll let you know how I get on.
