A bit of a masochist huh? Well, if you know you know…
1 hour ALL OUT. The turns, the mud, the off-cambers, the accelerations… This is where you test your meddle. That’s cyclocross.
The Crucible 700 Carbon Hard-tail Cyclocross Race Bike
A lot like fun, but different.
Right at home on your local circuit or gravel roads, the Crucible excels in fast, dry races as well as sand where balance, finesse and fast cornering are crucial. The frame is built with ultralight Toray T700 high modulus carbon fiber and features `cross-specific geometry that embrace the accelerations, braking, cornering, hopping barriers and shouldering the bike that are the trademarks of cyclocross.
What about when it turns wet? Electronic compatible with internally routed cables limit grit and water ingress for smooth operation, even in the worst conditions. Loads of mud clearance and 12mm thru axles also enable you to shine in the mud and hills where you’ll need every watt of power. The Godspeed Crucible provides every possible advantage to win in the worst conditions.

3 ways to get your godspeed bicycle
1. Click to Brick
Where online sales and Independent Bike Dealers (IBD’s) meet in harmony.
A better way: Customers buying online can ship their new godspeed bike directly to their local bike shop for proper, professional assembly (free shipping).
Why we offer free shipping to bikes shops:
- We’d rather see you spend that money on a professional assembly.
- Shipping to a commercial business guarantees there will be someone there to receive it (think porch pirates).
- The bike shop has the correct tools needed for proper assembly.
- The bikes shop will make adjustments to provide you with the best fit and experience.
- The shop has the knowledge and experience to assist you in your cycling future.
At godspeed, our goal is to boost the IBD with consumer e-commerce sales.
Historically, the internet has been used to cut prices, provide convenience and greater access to goods. We are creating a platform to showcase our brand and provide the best customer experience we can. We utilize the latest technology so customers everywhere can have access to our bikes, apparel and products at competitive prices. Our goal is to have you, the consumer, spend more time on your bike and less time fiddling with it.
2. Direct to Consumer
Customers can have the option, when buying online, to either have their bikes shipped directly to themselves for $150 shipping. This is an option for consumers who do not have a bikes shop near them and they have all the correct tools, knowledge and experience to properly assembly and adjust a new bicycle. Direct to consumer sales provide convenience, wider selections and sometimes a cheaper price but it doesn’t provide mechanical and technical support, local riding knowledge or support the local riding community. The IBD has always been the cornerstone of the bike industry and we’re all better off with them there.
3. Independent Bike Dealers (IBD)
Although the direct sales model traditionally excludes the IBD, we feel it is important to include willing IBD’s to become authorized, stocking godspeed dealers, as they foster regional relationships with customers, provide local trail knowledge and advocacy while supporting the local riding scene. Our website provides detailed information for most folks to complete a purchase decision, but there is no substitute for test riding a bike to see how it really stacks up. Authorized godspeed dealers may purchase inventory from godspeed to showroom and sell directly to customers.
