The Ultimate Cyclocross Commuter? Eriksen’s Titanium Disc Brake Dyno CX – NAHBS 2014

Pin It

SRAM CX1 product manager JP McCarthy is a lucky guy, and he knows it. He not only gets to work with new cyclocross technology as his main job, but he also enjoys plenty of perks, including needing to “test” the equipment he’s working on whenever he can, even during his commute. Most people ride a crappy, low-tech bike for their commute, but not McCarthy.

To make sure he reliably could get all the necessary testing in, he had Eriksen build up this show-worthy titanium cyclocross “commuter,” complete with a Waltworks fork, internally-wired Schmidt dyno hub, and of course, SRAM Force CX1, complete with a whopping 46t X-Sync chainring.
