    running Schwalbe Racing Ralph tires but now have on the Hutchinson Bulldogs Shimano SPD pedals Before The chassis is good but the motor is shot I raced my first cross race in the Single Speed category at MFG s King County Cyclocross race last Saturday I got my ass handed to me I placed poorly due to my time behind a clipboard or computer more than behind the handlebars over the past few months On the upside it was my first race but definitely won t be my last I didn t crash didn t get last place didn t give up and I had a great time The course had a lot of off camber climbs and descents and my legs didn t have the juice needed to stay in the saddle and slog up the hills Out of the saddle I was done for with no traction whatsoever Saying I didn t crash may mean that I could have pushed myself a little more but I would like to think that I just have decent bike handling skills Bryan Clark finished 9th in the Men s SS category his first real CX race He raced at SSCXWC but flatted out early on He was racing with GO MEANS GO as his team name I guess that means GMG has a team now Craig Ethridge absolutely slayed it which isn t too surprising he s a wild man on a bike After I don t think you will find a more affordable frameset out there built with a Columbus Life tubeset At 699 for the frame and fork it does cost a little more than some of the competition but many will agree that Columbus tubing is worth the extra few dollars It s a beautiful bike with a race geometry and lots of little details that shows the thought put into it The internal cable routing is a nice touch as is the cable stop at the seat stays Stainless Steel dropouts with a built in threaded tension screw prevent wheel slippage and there are fender eyelets if you are into that sort of thing No disc brake mounts it s got the traditional cantilever bosses I have never run disc brakes with track ends but it seems like it would be harder to adjust You may need either Paragon type sliding dropouts or an eccentric hub in conjunction with vertical dropouts I m not certain and I like canti s just fine They look good and depending on the brakes you have stop reasonably well The bike comes with a 130mm rear spacing so you can throw in a road wheel with a conversion kit if you d like They have added a phosphate coating on the inside of the frame to prevent the corrosion that CX subjects bikes to I love the bent stays and you can fit up to a 38c tire If you are a fan of steel bikes are looking to upgrade or

    An alloy frame and carbon fork more of an all purpose bike than either a road or cross frame Another multipurpose bike for those that don t have space or cash for a whole stable of bikes Framesets Raleigh SSCXWC frameset MSRP 700 This aluminum frame and carbon fork was the limited edition SSCXWC paint scheme for their 2009 offering I can say matter of factly that this year there will be something new coming out for SSCXWC and it will be available to purchase soon and it s going to be very different from what you ve seen before Traitor Cycles Crusade SS frameset MSRP 699 This bike looks really clean as well and I love the blue Columbus tubing and a Columbus fork which is great it shows good attention to detail when it comes to cable routing as well Discontinued Bianchi Roger Complete MSRP 1099 This seems to be a 2007 model which Bianchi discontinued Oddly enough disc brakes were made legal by the UCI this year maybe they ll bring it back 2010 Kona Majorone Complete MSRP 1099 Kona Race Light Scandium frame and a carbon fork Specialized Tricross Single Complete MSRP 910 Looks to be from 2008 Anybody have any other recommendations for SS Cross bikes under 1100 What are you going to be riding this year Tags all city nature boy fantom cross uno felt breed kona major one motobecane raleigh one way single speed cyclocross bikes sscxwc swobo crosby traitor crusade Ryan Living in and loving Alaska A passion for human powered transportation Beer drinker Hell raiser Two wheels one love Comments 10 Jon August 26 2010 at 3 01 PM Not a SS but the Surly Cross Check Complete is an affordable option http www surlybikes com bikes cross check complete Reply DB August 26 2010 at 4 43 PM Kona had a SS Cross Not sure if it ll be available in 2011 Reply OasisDouglas August 26 2010 at 6 35 PM Seems entry level especo to the bikes you posted but it s the bike I have my eye on unless I find a CL special 2010 Motobecane Fantom Cross UNO 399 99 includes shipping http www bikesdirect com products motobecane uno htm Reply MWA August 29 2010 at 12 34 PM Milwaukee Bruiser Budget build on website is 895 use the thread in brake bosses add V brakes and run SSCX Reply rschuetze June 18 2011 at 11 50 AM Great comments I love the entry level Bikesdirect option as well as the conversions Converting your geared cx bike to ss is also a real option though I ve focused on CX specific offerings here Reply BAM August 5 2011 at 10 20 AM Masi speciale ss cx Reply Bird October 5 2011 at 7 03 PM Masi offers a single speed CX named the CXSS aptly enough Steel frame and comes stock with 700x45C tyres Reply john January 18 2013 at 3 34 PM i m currently riding

    tube is traditional 1 1 8 top and bottom Uses the same geometry as our RX 1 0 what can we say we like how that one rides Fork on the actual production run will be the new ENVE because everyone is going to be just that with this thing envious Limited run of 40 to be sold this year to be sold purely though and for SSCXWC All proceeds of the sale of these frames goes directly to the event sorry kids no prodeals on this machine Shimano AGAIN and Gates Carbon Drive is offering up perhaps the sweetest groupo on the mud for one lucky person we know how creative SSCX racers are so start thinking YouTube in order to earn the groupo more details to be announced at IB Gates Carbon Drive is also on board and will be providing the complete drivetrain MSRP is currently targeted around 1200 for frame fork headset Sally will be taking one for its inaugural spin at StarCrossed and CrossVegas The complete built up bike will be at the Raleigh booth at Interbike You ll be able to buy them from the SSCXWC online store soon and with only 40 available they ll go fast Don t sleep Tags carbon gates carbon drive Raleigh single speed cyclocross sscx sscxwc Ryan Living in and loving Alaska A passion for human powered transportation Beer drinker Hell raiser Two wheels one love Comments 6 flx September 16 2010 at 2 14 PM had thought traditional fork would be 1 1 8 or maybe the bigger bearing on the button but both seems strange Reply Kevin September 16 2010 at 3 24 PM What s the rear spacing 120 Interesting to support new belt drive tech but not the newly UCI legal disc brake option Reply rschuetze September 16 2010 at 3 42 PM Being the same geometry as the RX 1 0 I m assuming it s going to be spaced at 130mm As for the disc brake tabs building a cross bike with disc brake tabs BEFORE the rule change might have been a gamble Since every change to the frame requires a whole new round of testing it makes it difficult to get things rolling Maybe next year Reply Patrick M September 18 2010 at 1 47 AM RE disc brakes I think disc brakes are great on cross bikes but riding a cross bike and racing a cross bike are different things Riding the bike one can easily find the many functional advantages of disc brakes Racing the bike one begins to realize that all those advantageous traits only slow you down Disc tabs aren t considered on most cx bikes simply because most of the advantages of discs don t apply when racing At the end of the day cross is ok with cantilevers awful brakes because they get the job done well enough for most Most bike racers will prioritize a lighter brake bike that simply gets the job
