hipsters and cyclocross

i saw a video the other day on someones blog about the fixie kids finding out about cyclocross. The video was super funny and very true as far as where i'm sitting. We've had a lot of kids that were/are into the fixed thing in the shop the past two months quizing me about CX.

I thought the video really was funny, but really, i think it's a good thing that the kids are finding CX, it's the most fun racing ever, and we can always use more people at the races, new faces, people trying to get into it and figure this thing out. Hopefully it will stick with them and they'll get into it for the long haul and progress, try and move up in the ranks. i'm all for anyone trying CX out and getting stoked on it, it's definetly the most fun race scene going, and always the most welcoming.

So, i say, bring it on, the more people involved in the cx scene the better, plus i'd way rather work on CX bikes at the shop than fixies! (not that i don't like working on those, just saying, cx bikes are the stuff).

both bikes setup waiting for the season to begin

The new Ibis CX bike waiting to get into the mix this year with the trusty Moots. Both bikes measure out the same and are setup fairly similar, for now though, the Ibis is running a 1/10 Dura Ace setup and the Moots has a traditional Dura Ace double cross setup 46/39 x 10 out back, this may change soon. I suppose it would make the most sense to have the Moots be setup with the 1/10 so it could handle the mud duty and run the double on the ibis for a drie setup, i'd way rather clean the Moots after a filthy race as the Titanium can take it. more to follow as i get more time on the bike and after the race wheels have arrived, thanks to Molly Cameron for the new Edge tubular wheels.

The MootoX got a redo for the race season this
year. Off went the XT components, which were
a mix of old and new, and on went the XTR bits,
thanks to clarke and joel for the cranks. The biggest
change this year are the American Classic Disc 29"
wheels, they are LIGHT, thanks especially to Jeremy
Quijano for sure. The weight of the sled went from
25lbs13ounces to 23lbs11ounces. yay. the only
bummer is that i'm still going to get it handed to
me in the Cat 1/expert class. dang.

new parts for the old frame

2009 Moots MootoX race bike

Finished this Moots MootoX just in time for
MWC factory racer Jesse Petersen to head
off to Moab, and live it up for his last few days
as a single man. Yup, it's his bachelor trip/party
and last time he'll ride off road in the mecca of
off road riding as a single fellow. We built this
bike up with some of the old, and some of the
new, either way it's a pound lighter than his
previous 29" bike with some of the same bits.

Had a suprise today at the shop. Our friend Ty
brought in the first hunter we sold back in the
2005. Ty ordered the bike, and a couple of
months later Rick was here for the Pure
Sweet Hell screening and the two got a chance
to meet. It's a 29" singlespeed with some 42c tires
and fenders at the moment. It's my size, which
makes it that much more fun to tune.!

2007 Jeff Jones Spaceframe

This is a bike i always thought i could ignore...
until i rode one of jeff's, then i was hooked.
The ride of this thing is unlike any of the 29"
bikes that i have ridden, it just plain rips. The
ride is most certainly easiest to understand by
taking a spin on the bike. So, if you see me on
a ride or would like to set up some time to try
out the Jones, just give the shop a call, ask for
me, nate, and we'll work it out. Then, you dig
hard into your wallet, find the money you
haven't spent yet, and we'll get you set up.

2001 Matt Chester Mutinyman ReDo.

This is the bike that started it all for me, first 29" wheeled bike, first SS, and really the reason i
got fired up on bikes again. I road and raced the bajeez out of this bike, in a million different
setups. it needed a little repair work this winter so Steve Potts did some reworking and blam, we're back in action. Type II fork up front for some forking action, and some WTB dirtdrops
returned to me from a long time ago lady friend, with custom salsa stem and the bike has
never been more fun to ride. I really enjoy it when you get to change your theory on a bike
and see what the changes bring out in a bike you've ridden a lot.
