First of all: I come from MTB background and I'm not much familiar with road(-alike) bicycles.
I'm now shopping for my first cyclocross bicycle.
I just got a nice offer for Fuji Cross Comp '10. The only thing is they have either S (52cm) or XL (61cm) frames.
I'm 190cm. My inseam is 86cm (89cm to the bone) with bare feet.
Obviously, S frame is way to small for me. But I'm worried if XL is not too big for me. XL's standover is 84cm. With shoes, clearance would probably be an inch or so.
My question is.. Is it comfortable to do cyclo-cross with an inch of clearance?
