You've probably seen the banner ad on this site - On One (~ Planet X) are right there - in at (pretty much) the start with their foot firmly down in the market adapting to disc brakes on cyclocross bikes. This is amongst the first widely available full carbon race frame with discs to hit the UK Cyclocross Market whilst other industry leaders are still dithering.
I was unlucky enough to have not quite ridden the first sample Dirty Disco frame to get into the country when it…Continue

Picture me - 1991 and living in Sheffield as a student. I loved my bikes and had just really started getting into mountain biking after a few years of time trialling and the odd road race. Living in such a great place back then for off-road cycling made it very easy to go out on my MTB. But races for mountain bikes back then were few and far between. I'd watched the three peaks and knew people who'd ridden it, but knew I couldn't afford a cyclocross bike on my pretty…Continue

Good review of the new Specialized Crux over on the road.cc site.
"You could buy the Crux Elite on a Saturday teatime and happily - well, maybe not happily but certainly painfully, race it Sunday morning without changing a thing. Unlike some other 'cross bikes that look like they've been cobbled together out of the parts bin to surf the current wave of popularity, or others that have a road bias with gearing that's too harsh in the mud and tyres that are rubbish it in, or…

Monterey Bay's Sea Otter classic always seems to make itself the big offroad expo in some way each year. SOme lovely new stuff from Lynsky and Norco below.
See photos and read more here on the latest cyclocross bike from Norco. Due to be released later this year, the 2012 Threshold is their first foray into the carbon cyclocross marketplace.

Just about to start some testing of a new prototype for Whyte Bikes. It's a slack-angled trickster of a thing that's going to love hectic rocky stuff and keep you comfy all day... more info to come I guess and see how I get on - not a final design yet so a bit of feedback yet to go back into the design process but expect something pretty similar to be in the shops next season. Blimey - that's less than 8 months away...

We recently delivered a pair of Velocity Major Tom cyclocross wheels to Rory, a young rider based in S London. He opted for Hope Mono Road 3 hubs in red, Sapim CX Ray spokes in black and Velocity Major Tom tubular rims. The rim is 23mm wide allowing more surface area for sticking the tubular securely. The set weighed 1553g and we thought they looked great. Rory commented "they were noticeably lighter and stiffer". I have added a couple of photos below.
