BICYCLES Singlespeed Cyclocross


This bike used to be my “cross” bike in the late 1980s when cyclocross specific bikes were as scarce as my expendable income. It then became my “all-purpose” bike in the mid-1990s and made the trip with me across the Pacific when I was living / working (and riding!) in Hong Kong. Since I now have an actual cyclocross bike, I have recently stripped this bike of gears and it has become my “go-to” bike for any local trip that encounters rough roads and / or does not require any “heavy-lifting”...
