Road/Gravel/Cyclocross

Cyclocross and Gravel Bikes: What's the difference? 

Some people might just say that it is a marketing scam, but there are real differences between CX bikes and Gravel bikes. Can you grind on a 'cross bike? Of course. Can you cross race on a grinder? Sure. But there are differences. 

Cyclocross bikes are designed for racing, and therefore they will typically be slightly more agile bikes. Steeper headtube angles, shorter wheelbases, and higher BBs make them quicker handling. Companies also route cables so they don't get in the way when shouldering the bike, and true race bikes won't have superfluous rack and fender mounts (to save weight). Some don't even have bottle cage bolts. 

Gravel bikes usually have longer wheelbases and slightly more relaxed geometries with lower BBs. This makes them a little more stable at higher speeds (think riding downhill on the road). They also usually have more tire clearance so you can run 40 or 42mm tires, and fender and rack mounts. Gravel Grinders tend to be a little more comfortable, designed for the long, rough rides. 

Come on into the shop and we'll be happy to talk about both. We can also give you maps of some super fun gravel rides throughout central Oregon, courtesy of dirtyfreehub.com

Surly Disc Trucker 26-inch Frameset
$765.00
A class-leading touring bike, the newly redesigned Disc Trucker provides versatility and dependability on the daily commute or trans-continental excursion. Fork blade three-pack mounts enable you to attach and haul even more stuff, and the frame features a low bottom bracket and long chainstays for comfort and stability while loaded down. With increased stack height and improved standover clearance, plus ample space for larger tires and fenders, it’s designed to go the distance. Introduced in 2012, the Disc Trucker is widely considered one of the best-in-class touring bicycles available today. Truly at home on the road, it features updated geo and modern component compatibility, along with versatile mounting options that make it ideal for daily commutes and months-long disappearing acts alike. Built from Surly’s proprietary, touring-compliant 'Natch tubesets, updates to the Disc Trucker include a shortened seat tube and slightly sloped top tube for better stand-over clearance, plus an increased stack height for a more relaxed riding position. Shortened chainstays offer improved stiffness and maneuverability around corners, while 12mm thru-axles provide a stiffer feel and greater stability when fully loaded. To ensure the Disc Trucker continues to exceed expectations in terms of compatibility with modern product standards, its dropouts have been redesigned to accommodate flat-mount disc brakes and captured thru-axles.
