What ‘Cross is All About

… well some of it anyway.

I’m back in Austin for a few days, tying up loose ends before hauling everything to Los Angeles. So bear with me if it seems quiet over here.

Raleigh Has Two New Bikes for Your ‘Cross Season

With ‘cross season almost underway here in the US, I continuiously receive emails from people looking for lightweight, solid bikes to race on. Raleigh has two new models this season which fit that bill. The first being a race-pedigree SSCX frame, the RXS. Built from 6061 Aluminum, a Gates carbon belt drive, with thru-axles, hydro disc brakes and with a solid price of $1,549, the RXS is a fierce competitor for your local races, or just a good time trail jammer.

Raleigh’s other new bike is not technically a cross bike, but a carbon “all-road” with clearances for a 40mm tire. The Roker Comp is ideal for those of you who might race a few times this season, but prefer to use your ‘cross bike as a vehicle to explore backroads, fireroads and all-roads. This beaut is built with Shimano 105 Mechanical Shifters and hydro discs for $3,299.

Head to your local Raleigh dealer to see these beauts in person.

Those Fairweather ‘Cross Builds

Fairweather‘s frames blend fashion with functionality and Blue Lug in Japan know how to build them up just right. These frames are made by Toyo in their Taiwan facility, pack clearances for bigger tires and come in three sizes. Unfortunately, because it’s a Japanese company, the largest size they offer is a 55cm, but that doesn’t mean we can’t ogle these beautiful bicycles.
