“The most important thing to keep in mind when buying a cyclocross bike is that they all look, weigh, and ride pretty much the same when they’re covered in mud.”

But hairy legs

I love the spirit world and I love your father.

great little read, thanks for posting. looking forward to racing my first cross race this winter!

running discs means hydraulic discs only (I concede that gunking up of mech discs at the caliper might make them less than ideal in mudfests, but plenty o fast people use em)

being obssessed with tyre pressure and tread is wacky, and is unique to these amazing athletes that SOMETIMES FALL OFF INTO THE MUD!!!

An informative read.
