A lightly used Felt F1X.




It still had the stock tires on it but the 700x35 Kenda knobby tires are designed for more dirt than I need so I went ahead and put some Bontrager Race Lite Hardcase tires on.




Now I need a Cateye wireless or just the mounting bracket, sensor and pick-up so that I can use the dual tire size feature on the Cateye I have on the mountain bike.

Does anyone have any ideas about where to find just the mounting stuff?
(LBS is looking into it but couldn't find it the day I was in there.)

That looks like a sweet ride.

The Cateye sensor its should be available through QBP (your LBS should have an account). Depending on price you might want to just get a new computer.

Killer deal on the Felt. Those are really nice. Several guys who race 'cross out of the LBS have them, including the owner.

You can get all your computer needs here.

I've ordered from those guys several times.

That's a steal! Somebody should jump on that.

So far so good on the ride. (One ~25 mile ride so far)


I just called the LBS about that kit.
They found it and it's $24. (MC100W parts kit)

They want $55 for the whole thing.

I have the tires if I decide to try to race it.


I've been buying my bike stuff from Tree Fort Bikes for a while now.

I'm thinking that I'd like this Cateye Commuter because IMO it's always fun to know the temp.

I'm also thinking about getting this tool kit and this CO2 pump IF I decide to order that computer.

Racing cross is *the* hardest thing I've done on 2 wheels. Period.

Get ready to have a great time doing it too.

I'm not really geared towards racing and haven't wanted to race anything for a very long time.

That said: I do think it'd be fun to go out there and ride their course(s) and see how things go. The key would be IMO to keep it fun and not to kill myself having that fun.

Compared to Oz's ride, this was nothing. 16K of vertical? OMG Nice work, Oznerol.

It started in Ventura and wound its way into Montecito, Santa Barbara and Goleta, then back down the coast to Ventura. Hit a couple roads I've never been on and want to ride again, both on the pedal bike and the motorcycle.

I didn't end up riding on Sunday. YakWife booked massages for us at a spot down the street and they were just the ticket.

I can't believe how much we could eat after the ride. We were like bottomless pits.

If you buy a new computer, you want cadence. That's more important than the rest of the features.

That multi-tool is an excellent choice, as it has a chain tool and the 2mm and 2.5mm hex sizes that are used on cantilever brakes. It, also, has the 10mm wrench needed for the front straddle cable holder. I have this multi-tool. It's kinda' cool.

I have that inflator. It'll accept threaded cartridges in any size, otherwise non-threaded cartridges have to be the 16gram size. If you try to use paintball cartridges (12gram), the outer cage will not push them into the valve. You'll have to stuff something into the cage to take up the remaining space. DAMHIK.

Thanks for the info.

I've never used cadence and typically just rely on my legs, lungs and heart to keep me pedaling at a comfortable/bearable rate.
I could see where a heart rate monitor could come in handy for training but I'm not sure that I'd know how to gauge my needs with the cadence feature.

I like the looks of that tool but it seems to have more than I THINK I'd need.
I have a great big tool box at the hose and a complete kit for the truck so I'm not sure if I'd be duplicating and possibly carrying more than I'd need. Again --->

I have a CO2 pump in each of my M/C travel kits but I'm not sure which cartridges I'm using in them. (I bought a case of them because they also work in my pellet gun but haven't looked at the size in a while. (No-threaded))

I need to do more research before moving forward.

Thanks for the help.
