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…Continue

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
Xxs xfire, all white with internal cable routing. Used by my son for last 2 years but now outgrown. We have used it as a cross and road bike. Ideal for size up to 5'5". Upgrades include avid shorty ultimates and carbon tub wheels which make it very light. Good condition with no damage to frame other than the usual paint chips. I also have my other sons xfire in red which I am also selling and will post shortly. £870 with carbons, £770 with alloy clinchers.
I'm new to CX as a sport but have had a cross bike for some time which I used for commuting. I just entered the Adventure-X Lakeland Monster Miles as a starter which I intend to do on my cross bike rather than a mountain bike but am unsure on tyres and whether the ones I actually have are suitable.I have the Specialized Borough CX 700-32c (tubed tyres) that came with my cross bike, but they are not particularly knobbly and have a smoothish centre with more grippy edges. What I don't know is…Continue
Looking for recommendations on an intermediate tubeless tyre to use on Stans Iron Cross rims. 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. Eventually got them to seal but had to use lots of sealant and they didn't stay up longer than a single…Continue
