Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking - What makes a good CX ?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Just wondering, is it just a road bike with dirt tires or what? I wanna go fast, but I dont want any terrain to slow me down, these bikes seem perfect for me. Please give me a lil info here :)

tougher frame, few cm longer wheelbase, a little more upright posture, somewhat slacker angles to maintain straighter lines over rough ground, a little clearance for mud to build up on tires, etc.
i especially love riding with roadies and being able to stop short and corner hard where they have to be careful :p

as cachehiker has said and the frame is a little different, and brakes are more powerful. a good cross bike will not give up much to a road bike, and it will need bigger tires to go in the dirt and still roll fast.
