    Is this frame a CX bike?

    I am guessing it is... as far as I know Bianchi specs their bikes a just cross or cross/touring

    EDIT: post should read: is this a CX FRAME? sorry!

    I'll take a stab then. I just wanted to see if anyone actually "knew" the answer difinitively. I will say YES! It lacks rack braze ons on the back which I would expect a tourer to be equiped with (not that you can't tour with it), there are only one set of eyelets presumably for feners (not that you need the extra set I have my rack and fender mounted on the same eyelet anyway. Lastly the wheelbase looks shorter to me, definatley the chain stay than what I would expect from a touring bike. The bottom bracket also looks higher than usual. This bike has a 60cm TT and a 61cm C-T seat tube. that makes sense to me because when you put on a rising stem you are shortening your top tube so a longer top tube on a CX bike would account for that, the 61cm seat tube measurement is either wrong or this bike as a shorter seat tube to accomodate the high bottom bracket. I don't know much about CX geometry but that makes sense in my mind. Do you concure?
