Cyclocross Bike Overview
Cyclocross is a type of bike race, typically held in winter, that involves participants riding and running. But unlike the triathlon form of leaving your bike, participants have to carry their bike over their shoulder, across different types of terrain including grass, hills, pavement, mud and wooded trails.
Cyclocross originated from road bike riders who previously participated in this activity as a form of training during winter. Over time, interest grew and cyclocross eventually became a popular competition that had riders who exclusively participated in this sport.
Originally old road bikes were used for cyclocross with certain modifications to suit the style of racing. Cyclocross frames today can vary depending on the rider. Generally though, cyclocross frames are based on either road or mountain bike frames.
