I just ordered a cx bike with a 39-52 front and 12-27 rear. Is this ok for CX?? I got Ultegra so I think thats the lowest gearing it offers. Thanks for your help/advice on this.
I'm thinking the 52 front is pretty big for a cross bike. I think I've got a 46 on my cross bike wjhich suits me fine. The courses over in England tend to be short and tricky, maybe the ones stateside are more open.
Still, give it a go offroad, and find out what suits you.... :)
