After finding a bargain trek cyclocross frame, i was wondering how many others have a cross bike as well as an MTB.

Cross seems to be getting very popular, i certainly have enjoyed the races i have enterterd since finishing the build.

So it be nice to see some more builds! :D

I do have an old Alan frame. Believe it's from the mid eighties. It's not build up though and hasn't been used in years.....
Lovely ride though. Think I'll have to build it up again.

Had this for a number of years now and don't intend parting with it in the near future :)

It's my Summer communter and strangely enough it always seems to have to stop at the local pub on the way home on a Friday night, couldn't ask for a better bike

I would love to see a picture of the Alan Rienster. I have an 80s road frame although like me it is coming unglued.

Mmmm, a cross bike. Even when I was fit I was crap at cross racing. By the time I had warmed up and was starting to fire on all cylinders, the winners had showered and gone home. I could beat some of them over the much longer distances of a MTB race though. Always wanted a X frame but can't really justify one. I am counting on you all to do that for me!

I generally find cross bikes cool or awful hideous things. I kinda fancy one for commuting journeys though.

Some great bikes on here so far 8)
