How Good Are Cyclocross Bikes?

My other bikes think they’re too much of a good thing 😉


Rolando Vera says:

I’m primarily an mtb’er but I had a high end carbon road bike that I sold for an aluminum cx Bike. I put some slicker tires and now I have fully capable road bike/cx Bike that can handle any road surface. I too am a former racer (now hobbyist) and for me I gained more versatility than I lost in speed by getting a cx Bike. Works for me.

what do you bring with you in your backpack when you`re out on the road, on short and longer trips?

Garfie1d73 says:

I have been riding a gravel bike for 3 years now and won’t look back. You can have so much fun with the wider tires, the different gear ratios and the very comfortable geometry. And I definitely love my SPD pedals. Let the roadies laugh and spit – they are just jealous!

manik3006 says:

Recently bought one. Absolutely satisfied with it. Hitting up the siwss roads and trails the same way as you apparently are 😉

th3d3wd3r says:

You sir, are an absolute machine!
Although, you’d have to be able to do 60mph to keep up with my ebike 😉 hahaa

LifeReels says:

100th like as I’m convinced totally to get one. Very good comparison. I will soon sell my MTB for this.

Reginald Scot says:

It should be how good are metal bikes, because I seem to remember you are a fan of titanium and steel bikes?

What size tyres do you use?

fabi says:

It’s great that I still grow. That means, when my 18″ hardtail is too small for me, I can get a CX. 😉

Travis Dreyer says:

Do you have any thoughts on the focus mares as a gravel bike that is used for road as well?

searchoverload8 says:

They’re just slightly heavier roadies with slightly relaxed geometry and wider tire clearances, cyclists tend to make much out of very little

CX POWAAAAAA !!!! (Loved this video, as usual)

Charlie Warlie says:

just bought a CX, i hope to have the same experience.


I ride a steel CX bike. I love it

Anime Guy 白大 says:

I want road bike soo bad but i dont have money to buy it 🙁

Gunks Hunter says:

I have two road bikes, a mountain bike and a CX bike. If I could only keep one it would definitely be the CX. Love your videos and your beautiful country! Keep it up.

Plain C-raz says:

I got a CX bike because of your vids @velofil lol. The part you say cx tyres roll so good. I was thinking of switching my 35mm racing ralph to a panaracer gravelking 32mm to nake myself faster. Will that be a good or bad idea?

Onypop says:

You seem to be in good shape. That must count for something.

Ali Al-Turki says:

One of the best videos I’ve seen about this topic!

Wansbeck Bikecam says:

which cx bike do you have? I want one!

aman saad says:

I watched Peter Sagan’s chill ride pace before, I think you can ride with his pack. Your pace is awesome.
And yeah, I love my CX too. Awesome bike. I changed it to a sleeker tyres, Specialized Roubaix 28c. What a blast!

SanskritFritz says:

the keyword being “I don’t race *anymore*” 😀

Kobbetop says:

I recently went from e-bike to a ”regular” bike because I noticed I’m in good enough shape to ride it. It’s faster, lighter and I get more workout on my commute. I have something they market as ”hybrid” bike with straight handle bars and narrow tires. CX would be more comfortable and maybe I switch to that some day, looks very good all-arounder in the video. Passing the lorry was my favorite part of the video 😉

alexander babichev says:

You are fast. It is not about your bike, it is about you 🙂

Arya Bima Putra says:

Going above 35 km/h is definitely like a moped
