New Cross Bike: '09 Ridley Crossbow

2009 Ridley Crossbow with SRAM Rival. Looking forward to using it as a commuter bike and to dabble in cyclocross racing.

In fact, did my first practice race last Wednesday:


As per Strava:
Baylands CX Practice Lap, 0.9 miles, 31 ft gain
warmup - 10.4 mph, 00:05:02
lap 1 - 12.6 mph, 00:04:10
lap 2 - 12.9 mph, 00:04:04
lap 3 - 13.2 mph, 00:03:59
lap 4 - 13.2 mph, 00:03:59

Unfortunately my HR monitor freaked out so I don't have those numbers. I'm sure I hit my max a few times. Dismounts and remounts felt fast. Corners, not so much.

Already looking forward to next Wednesday. First real race is in Oakland on the 17th. Also have a hill climb the day before, on the 16th.
