My other bikes think they’re too much of a good thing 😉
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?
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!
Recently bought one. Absolutely satisfied with it. Hitting up the siwss roads and trails the same way as you apparently are 😉
You sir, are an absolute machine!
Although, you’d have to be able to do 60mph to keep up with my ebike 😉 hahaa
100th like as I’m convinced totally to get one. Very good comparison. I will soon sell my MTB for this.
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?
It’s great that I still grow. That means, when my 18″ hardtail is too small for me, I can get a CX. 😉
Do you have any thoughts on the focus mares as a gravel bike that is used for road as well?
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)
just bought a CX, i hope to have the same experience.
I ride a steel CX bike. I love it
I want road bike soo bad but i dont have money to buy it 🙁
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.
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?
You seem to be in good shape. That must count for something.
One of the best videos I’ve seen about this topic!
which cx bike do you have? I want one!
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!
the keyword being “I don’t race *anymore*” 😀
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 😉
You are fast. It is not about your bike, it is about you 🙂
Going above 35 km/h is definitely like a moped

I love my cyclocross bike. I use it for road racing even!
love to your video… you set up my mind to buy a cx bike
yeah, cool vid brooo
