How To Set Up Your Cyclocross Bike

How To Set Up Your Cyclocross Bike

‘Cross bike setup is a bit different than setting up a road bike…

With its technical nature, it pays to have a well set up cyclocross bike. By this, we’re mainly talking about tires and your position.

Gearing is different too – shoot for a 46 outer ring and a cassette that’s around 11-28.

It’s also recommended that you play around with the release tension on your pedals.

In this video from Global Cycling Network, you’ll see there aren’t any hard and fast rules, so again, get out on your bike with an allen key and play around to find out what works for you.

Despite having started packing the week before, I was up till midnight checking on gear and feeling like I was forgetting something. We left Missouri at 7am and seemed to travel forever. About 8 hours later, we rolled into Goodland and got ourselves checked in and a camping spot secured for the night."
