My new (and first ever) CX bike has just arrived, and I'm rather chuffed with it!
What do people reckon? (Any glaring errors in set up?)
It's lighter than I was expecting at 19lbs (including pedals), so that's a lovely surprise!
Never ridden Sram before, but seems to work well and I don't have geared road bike, so don't need to worry about swapping to Shimano and getting confused.
Only thing I might change is chainset, as the gearing seems a little hardcore for my mincing about and 165mm cranks tend to be much kinder to my knees. Oh and probably an inline post.
I can't wait to take it out for a proper spin, but from a very quick nip around the block, it seems a great fit (a victory in itself for any woman of 5'3"!), with a pretty short TT, and good stand-over.
Any tips on what tire pressures to run for a mix of (mostly) road and (hopefully) a few light trails? (I weigh 46kgs)
Also, can anyone recommend any cheeky little trails very close to Oldfield Park? With coursework/revision and two mini monkeys to look after, time is v limited, so the closer/shorter the better! Was just thinking of hopping on the two tunnels cyclepath and seeing what I can find from there...
Many thanks in advance!
