• Hi all,

    Judging by the weather today Cyclocross season must be coming! So I figure now is a good time to try and sell this. I had aspirations of giving CX a go last year but sadly I just don't have the time what with other things going on. I have three bikes and as this one never gets ridden it needs to go to free up some space.

    It's a great bike but sadly I never got the fit or the gearing quite right for me. I'm 6ft and feel like I would need to flip the stem to shorten the reach a little bit. Also the SS freewheel I put on is far too spinny, you would probably want to put a bigger chainring on or swap the freewheel for something smaller. The fixed gearing is good though. I will confirm all the sprocket counts when I have a chance.

    I don't have any actual CX tyres to put on but the massive Pasela's are so god damn comfortable for commuting.
