Cyclocross bikes are fast becoming the warriors of the bike world. Cross bikes will take a pounding, and can serve as a commuter workhorse, an off-road explorer. With a change of tyres you can convert these machines into a true road bike, or an all-day tourer.
Most cross bikes will take mudguards and pannier racks for the commute to work and back.
Cross Bikes now come with a vararity of brake set ups, from cantilever or v-brakes, to the more powerful mechanical disc brake & now hydraulic disc brakes for even more stopping power.
Disc brakes have been a revelation in the cross racing scene, although you may not be interested in racing you can still take advantage of this new technology. Disc brakes, especially hydraulic, offer progressive, consistent & powerful braking performance in all conditions. Perfect for the daily commute in typical british weather or during long descents whilst touring. You can use the brake type filter on the left to have a look at disc brake cross bikes.
