Where are all the second hand Cross bikes?
Was planning to get that cheap boardman as a winter trainer on the ctw scheme, but having looked into the arrangement (end of term payment, you need to pay it all plus extra if the company get rid of you etc) plus I can’t get it until after chrimbo I’m looking at alternative options.
Decided to look 2nd hand, but theres very little out there, not like when I bought my roadie off here and got a great deal. Am I looking in the wrong place, or are 2nd hand cross bikes few and far between (I suspect its the later?Posted 4 years agogsm7Member
I need a 52-54 probably. My thinking was trying to pick up something for less than 350 quid, given my full ultegra roadie cost less than that. I think I’ve badly misjudged the market however, not much available for that kind of cash, even on the bay.
That merida in the classifieds is lovely however, and my size…and very local….
nope must resist given its 3 times what I want to spend. I’ve been here far to many times with my other bikes..:-(Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber

You’re buying at totally the wrong time of year!Posted 4 years ago
Everyone is racing them now so currently high demand, low supply: come February/March, they’ll be selling them off and (if you buy new) shops will also be starting to discount their CX bikes to make way for summer road bikes.
I fancy something I can also take up my local hills, so needs to be a cross I reckon. Some nice bikes out there but all a bit big or expensive…
Old git has inspired me to think about building something up, I have loads of bits already I reckon I could maybe use. Would a set of road wheels be suitable? And if so, where can I get a cheap frame and forks from…on one appear all sold out of the cheap onesPosted 4 years agorp16vMember
