How many of you are racing CX and using Speedneedles? I love my Speedneedle for Road and MTB... but i am a little leery to jump on and off the speedneedle in CX. Does anyone have any alternatives that are the same shape?

I have used the speedneedle on my mtb and used to race on that as well. It has seen a lot of abuse but lived through it. go get it.

I did some marathons on a stripped SLR. If the shape works for you get it.

Jumping on and missing will always hurt. Possibly less if the saddle is slippery but can't vouch for it. Be sure to give it some pre-season practise. :-)
