I’d say so – feels great off road. Ride position seems good for making progress IME, don’t know how it relates to a full-monty race CX geometry, but it’s a long way from the upright style you’d get on an urban bike.
The pomp is quite weighty – guess that would be the main drawback. Makes for a great indestructible fixie commuter, but not really an asset for CX.Posted 4 years agojwabMember
I noticed another post where you said you were after a new frame?
I have a medium, latest style dark blue one i will be selling new or split up if you are interested. it is literally as new. used for nearly a year but only on the road so no damage at all.
It has a cane creen headset and new shimano BB. Let me know if you want pictures and or details of the build in case there are other part you would be interested in. I have built it up with carbon forks that have road based clearance so assume it would be a split if you are interested.Posted 4 years agocycleofaddictionMember

The Pompino makes a great SSCX bike and handles great offroad and if you you pair it with a carbon fork and a nice light set wheels it isn’t too heavy either, I put off replacing my stolen mtb for 18 months because this is such a fun to ride offroad. If you’re looking for something that’s a bit different to your mtb for a second bike you won’t go far wrong with the Pompino
