CX-Specific Bike Fit Interview

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) 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 : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

CX-Specific Bike Fit Interview

Interview with Cat 1 cyclocross racer, bike fitter and physical therapist Beth Mason at In The Crosshairs. Pretty good stuff. We cover a lot of the "conventional wisdom" about how to set-up a cx race bike versus a road bike. Let me know what you think.
