Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

No compact cross frames?

Why is it that cross bikes don't use compact geometry? the only bike I can find that does is a Felt. Is it strength/durability issues?
