    Usually, a CX bike has a more relaxed geometry with more clearance for larger tires. Similar to a touring bike. Also, the frames and fork have canti mounts for better braking and clearance.

    Thanks,
    If you can fit some nobby tires, within the confines of your fork, rear stays, and with the brakes on your bike, then go for it. Tall skinny tires in the dirt is a lot of fun if you cyclocross race or just ride.

    When I find the guy that stole my CX bike, I will beat him with a stick severely about the head and chest.

    ^^^

    I'm not trying to troll -- I'm just a nub -- but aren't 16 spoke wheels a bad idea for cx? I thought the point was to build something bombproof.
    is bikesnob really paying for advertising? wtf?

    These rims are actually quite strong.

    Plus, if I should have a problem, I've got backup wheels.

    Not sure about the reflectors, the coppers here in sweden are really strict about cycling safety and such...
    But I think I will remove them, they're butt ugly!

    Trust me on this, they ARE very green! Wear your sunglasses during first viewing. The carbon fork is a nice upgrade from previous Snakes, the 10sp is debatable, the fact that they are now using DT spokes is a HUGE plus. I've become adept at replacing the garbage spokes on my 05 Snake, the damn heads just pop right off the things!

    I'm looking to get into cyclocross, and i have a question for you riders. I have a old alu giant ocr (which i dont road ride anymore) and if i threw a pair of knobby tires onto it would it be alright as a cross bike? I dont really want to go out and drop money on a new bike esp when trying a new sport out. Any help would be appreciated

    New BMC Cross Machine

    I just finished setting this thing up. Bars and Stem are there until I determine the best set-up. This bike is great so far and the Force shifters are very nice. Still need some help setting up the front, but, the rear is perfect and very nice to use on rough terrain. Fulcrum Racing 1 wheels with Tufo tubulars.

    My newest cross bike with a mullet:



    Who needs the Bianchi Roger? My main reason for doing this modification was that when I use the bike for my winter ride, I wanted to go fixed but not with the weak front CC canti as my only brake.
