Going to a bike auction..

So UC Davis (a local college and my alma mater) is having a bike auction this weekend. There they will be auctioning off about 350 used bikes that have been claimed by the University police. Wheres the cyclocross content you may be wondering?

My plan is to go get an old road bike and an old mountain bike and do a little project to show how either one of these could be turned into a cyclocross bike.

The finished bikes probably wont be light enough for the Plus One Lap Gallery, but they will be cheap (goal is under $100 each after the conversion).

I'll be taking my calipers to measure the max tire size in the rear chainstay on all the road bikes that look promising.

I'm excited to see what ill find...
