Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bike, they are lightweight, with narrow tires and drop handlebars. However, they also share characteristics with mountain bicycles in that they utilize knobby treaded tires for traction, and cantilever style brakes for the clearance needed due to muddy conditions. They have to be lightweight because competitors need to carry their bicycle to overcome barriers or slopes too steep to climb in the saddle. The sight of competitors struggling up a muddy slope with bicycles on their shoulders is the classic image of the sport, although un-ridable sections are generally a very small fraction of the race distance. Cross bikes also make good winter bikes or commuters, their frames have plenty of clearance which allows for fenders, while the upright angles make them agile around town, meaning you can hit the trails at the weekend and then fit some road tires and commute on them during the week.
In the world of cycling, Eddy Merckx is a legend. He is the best cyclist ever; having won 5 Tours de France, 5 Giro d'Italias, 3 World Championships, 7 Milan-San Remos, and having beaten the World Hour Record, to name a few of his victories. In all, he won 525 races, an all time record. And that is why they called him The Cannibal.Eddy Merckx was and still is a maniac of maintaining his bikes. He would often stop in the middle of a race, just to adjust his seatpost by a fraction of an inch (and he would still win the race).

Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
