What is a good standover height clearance for a cross bike? The clearance on my mtb top tubes have all been 2"-3" I've never owned a road bike but am looking at trying a cross bike.

from my friends at Nor Cal-Nev CX. http://www.cycle-smart.com/coaching/articles/crossbike1.html.

Be sure to check out the other great articles by the same coach at http://www.ncnca.org/cyclocross/2003/. I've give the general link and you'll need to hunt a bit for the tidbits, but it's worth it, trust me. And you'll probably find even more links you'll appreciate.

Enjoy!
