I volunteered out at the Cyclocross nationals yesterday, being held here in Kansas City. I cycle about 1000 miles per year, mostly on my road bike. After yesterday, I may have found a new love. Wow...
Am I naive in assuming cyclocross bikes are tougher than road bikes? Reason I ask: I am 250 pounds. Will lower end CX bikes (i.e. not carbon) sustain the off-road use my weight would give it?
