Cyclocross bikes are incredibly versatile. They were originally road bikes with subtle modifications to make them suitable for racing in muddy fields in the off-season. They now have a great mix of generous tyre clearance, wider gearing and relaxed geometry with road-style drop bars and gear shifting. Most of the CX bikes we sell have rack and fender mounts making them perfect fast commuters and light tourers.
You’ll notice that we used the term road bikes, rather than racing bikes. Racing implies a no compromises pursuit of knocking seconds off the clock. Road on the other hand, just suggests that these bikes are best suited to sealed surfaces. They’re still quick, but without compromising comfort. We like the type of road bike that you can ride all day. A bike for the type of ride that includes scenery and breaks for coffee and well-earned bakery treats.
