Show me/tell me about your Rose cyclocross
Quite seriously considering a Rose Pro DX 3000. However, there are very few reviews of them. After some searching I know some people on here seem to have bought Rose cyclocross. How do you find them? Want something for 3 hour winter road/off road hacks, not racing, but still relatively light.

I have the DX 4400. Like it a lot. I don’t race it – I bought it as a road-capable bike that was rugged enough to eat up rough bridleways etc. did a three day tour in the highlands on it and kept up with my roadie mates on that (and mashed them on the big climbs thanks to a WiFLi deral and wide cassette).
Anything specific you want to know?Posted 4 years ago
By the way, Fin at Rose UK currently had a bunch of ex-demo bikes for sale, including a 57cm DX 4400 for £850.
Also, if you do decide to buy a Rose make sure you sign up for their loyalty card first as a bike earns you about 30 euros worth of reward cash.Posted 4 years ago
GrahamS – thanks very much for the advice. Unfortunately that bike is going to be too large but great bargin for someone.
I saw your Scotland route on a search I did. Great ride – I’ve driven all of that area. Some pretty bumpy roads. How do you find the forks for vibration? Is the bike reasonably light? I guess so if you were beating the roadies.Posted 4 years ago
I’m new to road riding so not got anything to compare it to really, other than my test rides of others bikes.
Forks seem fine. And yeah it’s a “light enough” bike. Not super-carbon-race-light but then that’s not its role. Off the shelf weight is lighter than my mates Specialized Allez.
I guess so if you were beating the roadies.
I only had them on the hills due to superior gearage! I got nailed on the flatter bits, but that was due to man not machine!Posted 4 years ago
