Raleigh sent us a sneak peak of the 2011 RX 1.0.
- New Shaped Aluminum tubing…flattened underside top tube and thinned seat stays to help smooth out some of the trail jarring
- BB30 bottom bracket is lighter and stiffer
- Easton EC70 fork
- Brand New Shimano 105
- Paint scheme is definitely NOT Red, White and Black…like every other cross bike being released
The RX 1.0 will be available for demo throughout the MFG Cyclocross Series.
MFG sponsor Cycle U is organizing Cross Swap on August 7th. The Cross Swap will allow cyclists the opportunity to rent a space to sell or swap their old, new, or gently used cross gear. There will also be a consignment option available for people who don’t want to rent a space. All types of bikes and bike equipment will be welcome. Full details on Cross Swap here!
Registration is now open for Cycle U’s Cyclocross Boot Camps. Sign up here to take your cyclocross skilz to the next level.
MFG sponsor Cascade Bicycle Studio is now the exclusive Seattle dealer of Dugast tubulars. The first cross race may be over 8 weeks away but it is not to early to start stretching tubulars and applying layers of tubular cement on rims. Tim Johnson, US Champ, can pick any tire he wants. He picks Dugast!
