- What Cyclocross bike for up to £1k? (Onyourbike C2W).
Last C2W purchase I saw was a Boardman CX, and it’s very good VFM and a great bike – as they are so freely available it’d be worth test riding for sure.Posted 4 years ago
Would think twice about not getting a pure road bike though if it’s >10 miles each way, just down to time. But I’d take 10 minutes extra on a nicer/safer commute too. Just worth considering.DaveyBoyWonderMember
I asked the same question last week. Although I was err’ing towards a Genesis, I have a feeling (and I’m awaiting a confirmation) that our scheme only uses Halfords in which case I may get a Boardman. Was looking for something steel ideally but in terms of VFM, the Boardman looks damn good.Posted 4 years agolarrydavidMember
I’ve been commuting on a Whyte Kings Cross for the last year, and a bit of off road and cyclo cross races. Commute is 15 miles each way, 3 times/week average.
I’ve replaced the tyres (wore out), BB (developed play), gear cable, brake pads, chain, cassette and chainrings (wore out – didn’t clean at all).
I can’t really complain for basically no maintenance or cleaning. The Sora group is remarkably adept at still working despite increasing muck and grunge. Wheels have stayed true as well.
Overall I’ve been very happy with it. One thing I’ve liked especially is the lack of toe overlap – it makes track stands and filtering through traffic much easier.Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
I got a caadx on C2W – v impressed with it but it’s not really a commuter for me. Prefer a steel singlespeed for day in day out commuting, so something like the day one would fit the bill. If you fancied gears then a colleague has the croix der fer on C2W, not sure if that dips under a grand these days?Posted 3 years ago
