Cyclocross Bikes

Cyclocross Bikes are similar to the Road Bikes except Cyclocross Bikes are more suitable for the muck and dirt. They have design features such as increased clearance above the fork so that mud will not get stuck, knobbly tyres to grip the mud more, flat toptubes so they can be carried on your shoulder, a different style of brakes called 'v brakes' to increase stopping power and a lower gear ratio to help pull through the mud and climbs. However with a change of tyres the Cyclocross bike can become a road bike. For those of you wanting to try both disciplines this is a good alternative!
