Looking for a XL CX bike on a budget
« on: November 21, 2018, 11:37:39 AM »
Im big, I want cheep CX bike mainly for going on spins and in and out o work not looking to win any races.
500€ mark is my budget I'm trying to keep to.

Was considering putting grippy rubber on a road bike but do a fare bit of wet weather work and over mud even on the way to work so disk brakes are kind of high up on the list so would be best to try and get an old gravel bike.

Needs to be very XL in size 6,4 and 18 stone. I wouldn't say no to more room on my Commencal meta-am-v42-origin-650b-black-2018 or my 2014 GIANT TALON 27.5 1 so id say the bigger the frame the better for me as when I'm peddling I find my self heading of the back of the saddle with them raked back as far as they go. It's worse on the Talon than the Commencal as she's pretty long.

Advice appreciated or if anyones knows of a bike going.

If you hang around long enough i'm sure Jacko will probably selling his CX bike.  :-X

Other than that keep an eye on the sales for last years stock in CRC, Bike24 etc. Although your budget might not stretch to disc brakes. For 2nd hand try adverts.ie or check out the other cycling club forums.
