cyclocross bikes review - Diamondback Steilacoom
Diamondback Steilacoom RCX Cylcocross Bike (700c Wheels), Black, 50CM
The Thoroughbred of Cyclocross has arrived and you get to ride it. The Diamondback Steilacoom RCX will take you across the finish line, but you have to remember to stop. The fully butted alloy frame with a formed top tube for easy portage and an integrated head tube is sturdy enough for the abuse that Cyclocross brings and the carbon fork saves weight without loosing performance. Throw in the FSA Gossamer Pro Cross cranks and the Shimano 105 10-speed components and this pony is ready to run with the best of them. If you're ready to take your riding to the next level mount up on a Steilacoom RCX.
This is my cyclocross bike. It's a new Louis Garneau Steeple X frame and fork, with new FSA chainrings, new Spooky brakes, and my new race wheels, but all the rest of the parts are from my road bike. So this is my only non-commuter bike right now.
My cyclocross bike
I built this bike last summer/fall around the time I built Tommy's cyclocross bike; just getting around to posting pics. It is a lot of fun to ride. Spectrum PowderWorks painted the bike. Photos by John Fabrizio.
