Roadie gots a question bout cyclocross
Hey guys I am a roadbiker, but where I am going to be living has lots of logging roads, or fire roads you might call them, totally made of rough dirt and gravel, lots of little jagged pebbles. Can cyclocross bikes ride on this stuff without issues? I know that a roadbike just could not take that sort of terrain, if I get a cyclocross I would definitely get one with disc brakes, and I am hoping the tires on cyclocross bikes can take far more abuse than roadtires without blowing, or getting cut by rocks, how durable are cyclocross bikes, can they take the gravel/sharp pebble abuse? any help is much appreciated! thanks
