BICYCLES Cyclocross


I bought this frame from a friend who had purchased the bike from BikesDirect.com just for the parts group. I believe that this bike was also a Fuji OEM – Made in Taiwan – just like my cheap track bike. I built it up using my old road bike components – the traditional evolution for cyclocross parts. My off-road skills are not great, so I have yet to enter a cyclocross race (maybe never...), or much less even ride this bike off-road – and therefore this bike has the double duty as “winter bike”...
