It’s only April and the cyclocross bug has already bit. And it’s the fault of the Sea Otter Classic and the great coverage by Cyclocross Magazine.
The big thing was disc brake equipped ‘cross bikes. Disc equipped 2012 and 2013 model year cyclocross bikes from Redline, Raleigh, Diamond Back, Felt, Cannondale, Look, Norco and Colnago, along with many others were on display.
And then there were tires. A lot of new ’cross tires on the market. New cyclocross tires were unveiled by Continental, Ritchey, Hutchinson and Vee Rubber. I’m most interested in the Vee Rubber tires. As you may know, Vee Rubber USA bicycle division in now headed up by Jim Wannamaker, formerly known as Jim from Kenda.
Along with bikes and tires, there was a lot of other cyclocross on display too. Cyclocross Magazine has great coverage of all thing cyclocross from the 2012 edition of the Sea Otter Classic. Click the link HEREand you can read all about it.
