So, can a cyclocross bike hang with a mountain bike on technical trails? How technical can the trails be?
Here in Lynchburg, VA we have a plethora of trails, to simple hard-packed dirt single track to unmaintained super-steep singletrack with lots of rocks, ruts, and roots.
It may be hard to describe, but what I want to know, is how much off-roading can a cyclocross bike handle?
If you are familiar with Lynchburg (i.e. Blackwater Creek, Peaks View, Candlers Mountain) make specific references to what it can/can't handle.
Thanks so much.
