Carbon frameset wanted

Hi, My first post! Seasons greetings fellow crossers! Any ideas very welcome, cheers! I'm looking for a Ridley X Fire frameset 2013 (cantis) 52cm. Or a similar frameset sized 54cm, but must have bottle cage lugs, as I like to use my bike for road training as well as CX racing. Framesets don't seem such easy things to source (in my limited experience)? I'd go for a Kinesis Evo if it had lugs, but oh well..

Bradford National Trophy, Peel Park - a modern-day classic.

I don't know what it is, or how to describe just why, but this is still just the best 'cross course in our country.  (Okay - the best with under 7,000ft of climbing). 

With my injury, I was a spectator this year, but did that spoil my enjoyment?  It did not. 

Here's a big bunch of photos I took (sorry - i only just arrived at the end of the J / W event and only started taking pics for the U16s and Sen / U23 event. 

My piccies are…

Giant TCX SLR 2 (small) - For Sale 1 Reply

Bike is in very good condition, with a few marks from use. This mainly consists of some rub on the cranks....which is the downfall of black chainsets everywhere. Have a look at pics linked for more info.I am the second owner, and the bike was bought originally in December. I bought the bike to demo, as no UK dealer had any stock of the bike in a small. Apparently, this is going to be the case till the new models drop at the end of the…Continue

Press Fit Bottom Bracket Creaking 2 Replies

It appears like the Shimano Pressfit 86 Bottom bracket in my frame is creaking under pressure. I've already removed cleaned and re-greased the pedals and chainset.Creaking BB86 gets loads of hits when googled, so I guess it's nothing new. In my mind the 'problem' is the use of plastic cups which surely must deform over time. I also wonder if the cups can work loose and creep slowly out of the frame (limited by crank/chainset)To save endless faffing and frustration I'm thinking of replacing with…Continue

Best UK Course 17 Replies

I know it's horses for courses. Not literally, of course.My mind has been on what makes a good course lately. It's hard to say in a totally unbiased way, because each rider - at all levels - tends to favour a course that they themselves do well on.Not talking 3 Peaks, Harriers v Cyclists or any sportives here, people - we're talking hour plus one lapSo what's your fave?  Here's mine:National Trophy:Peel Park, Bradford. It's a belter. Short climbs, proper forced dismounts, straight, wide tarmac…Continue
