Is it worth it?

UKCyclocross.com is in its 7th year. Traffic and usage has grown year-on-year, but for a few quid or goodies donated by businesses for banner ads, its net value is in its users. It is a labour of love for me - I do love cyclocross and wanted to see some central place where we can go and share things, sell things, say things, ask things... but I'm not sure it's worth it. 





The problem is mainly to do with cost. The software platform the site runs on works…

Kids Bike Wanted

We're after a new bike for our son, who is almost 11, 143cm tall with a 69cm inside leg. He does junior tri races & cyclocross, so needs something light with good grip & mud clearance. Probably 26" or 650c wheels. Maybe 700c. Any tips? Seen a few online new. Ebay is full of chaff so it's hard finding 2nd hands ... Anyone got one in the shed? ThanksContinue

Rear mech solutions 9 Replies

Last night at the London Summer Series at Herne Hill saw a massacre of rear mechs. First I saw went on the practice lap. I managed to last until 2 laps to go until mine went. Half my club mates suffered the same fate.In the absence of a second bike and a pit cleaning team, has anyone got any suggestions to reduce the chances of this happening? I was running a sram force medium cage, but have been told short cage are better as they attract less mud. Would a short cage mtb rear mech fare any…Continue

Tyres for spare/pit wheels 3 Replies

After breaking a spoke, and consequently being without a rear wheel for a few days, I'm planning on investing in a spare set of wheels, currently I have 700c wheels on my road bike but I don't want to use those on a cross bike. (My commuter has 26" wheels).In the case of the cross bike, they'll become "pit wheels", I've got no pretensions of high placings, but when I enter I don't want something as simple as a puncture to cause a DNF (obviously some things like a broken dérailleur could be…Continue
