I am shopping/hunting for a CX frame that will primarily be used for winter training and at least a test of commuting (25mi one way), and just maybe might try a cross race next season.
My focus though is a winter training bike, with full fenders. My concern is toe overlap. Modern frames seem to simply ignore this issue, and I have done some research (asked around, searched threads here) and most people seem to answer that it isn't an issue. But I have pretty severe overlap on my carbon road frame, and I think it is a big issue -- I haven't gone down yet, but there have been many low speed maneuvers where I had a little "oops" moment. So despite what I am hearing, I still want to minimize toe overlap on a CX bike, especially since it will have full fenders most of the time. Are there some frames that are particularly better on this point than others, or do I have to back out the geometry from the typical frame specification?
