Cyclocross Bicycle Photos

A good cyclocross race sits somewhere between an anarchist convention and the Sea Biscuit/War Admiral match race - pulsing throngs waving banners and howling like vikings. With inclement weather weeding out the weak, the folks who seem to populate these races are truly the devoted. Yet, the mood is suprisingly low key and inviting. Reminds me of the early days (1984 - 87) of mountain bike racing, when you could at least start the race just behind Tom Ritchey and Gary Fisher. Sure it's crazy. But, would you rather spend the winter down at the local 24 Git-Fit Center wondering who's sweat you are lying on?

The bicycles used for cyclocross racing have to strike the classic balance between strong and lightweight, and have to put up with more abuse through one season than most bikes see in a lifetime. They are purpose-built, but usually used for much more - trail riding, commuting, even touring. It's an all-around bicycle design that begs to be ridden.

However, it seems like the greetings on the trails are too fleeting, and the winter hoe-downs have too much else going on to really appreciate the individual bicycles. I've decided to try to bring together images of cross bikes so that others can enjoy them, as well as learn from the setups which work for others. That's what this page is about and that's where you come in. I need your cross bike photos!

So, send me what you're running!

The hardest working man in cyclocross with a helmet cam supplies footage of the SF Mclaren Park DFL race. Nice to hear the happy old songs of my youth.
