- £1000ish Cyclocross Bike – Inspire Me
I’m contemplating breaking the n+1 rule and selling my road bike and replacing it with a cross bike. I reckon it would be fine for the roadying I do and I’d be able to use it for CX and other riding.
Anyway, does anyone have any have any recommendations for a bike around the £1k mark? If I see anything I like the look of it might just make me do it.Posted 6 years agorusty trowelMember

If using for road and cx duties, gearing is a bit of an issue. Road compact is a bit off for cx racing (i always found myself at the top end of inner ring or bottom end of big ring).
CX gearing doesn’t really go high or low enough for regular road use.mattythemodMember
In the same boat so to speak and have been humming over a Kinesis Crosslight 5t which does not have disc mounts but does have mudguard eyes which is a bonus for me the other choice is a Cotic X , has disc mounts, mudguard eyes etc etc but some reviews have doubted the steering and the quality of the fork .Posted 6 years agosamuriMember
Here’s my recommendation.
Well over a year of hard core commuting, rides up in the pennines and general toughing it up in the nasties.
I break stuff all the time and this thing has kept going through all sorts with me. All I’ve done is replaced the BB bearings. It’s light, fast and strong. Brilliant!Posted 6 years ago
