Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

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....
