Getting cross (again)

It’s been a long time since I had a working cross bike.

Seeing all the fun people were having at the two CX races I photographed last year rekindled my desire for a working cross bike. I came fairly close to ordering a new disc equipped cross bike on several occasions, but decided to take the cheaper option first.

I had two options, rebuild the Planet-X Uncle John from scratch, or rework the somewhat heavier Singular Peregrine. In the end I took the easier but much more weightier option and removed the guards from the Peregrine and fitted Small Block 8 tyres.

I’m planning a proper test ride one evening this week, hopefully this will satisfy my desires and saves me from ordering that Cannondale I’ve got my eye on…
