CX season is almost here, are you ready?

I thought it was summer but now the cyclocross preparations starts for real here in Stockholm. The track in Sköndal is fixed, Stockholms CXcup starts be shared on Facebook. People starts talking cyclocross and wheels and tires again. Customers come in at work asking about cyclocross. 2016 models starts to come.

All while I’m thinking how not spend a fortune on a light cyclocross that I won’t use😉

my frontpage is this: Crux Elite

My mind has a war between the stiffer thru axle versus the easier QR and in the middle is it thinking about what colours and which parts I should/have to change on:

I am thinking about it’s worth spending over 250€ on Sapim CX-Ray or if I should go with DT Revolution spokes, or maybe competition?

Not a single thought of cotton sidewalls because this season will be easy and fast. Specialized tires are good and cheaper than FMB. And is cotton really more attractive?

So many questions, so little time. CX is the dream for a guy interested in parts and tweaks. CX is also the sport which women and men compete on the same courses on the same days with drop bars going faster than possible and looking better than they usually do. The good looking sport with friendship, and maybe even more.

So what are you expectations for this season and dreams? Which bike is the coolest of 2015/2016?

  1. Vad vet du om originalhjulen som sitter på Cruxen tex vikt, axlar? Ok att köra på eller obönhörlig uppgradering? Och om man vill uppgradera utan att tömma plånboken helt, har du några tips?
