Is it worth it? 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.

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

I have mixed results with the tyres I have tried over the last year: Ritchey Excavader (came originally on my Boardman CX team) - seal really well and don't loose air. The tread is a bit light though and looking for something with a bit more bite.Continental CycloX King - Bit loose on the rim.
