cyclocross frame sizing-same as road?(3 posts)

cyclocross frame sizing-same as road?king of Norway
Sep 19, 2003 9:31 AM
I ride a 60cm c-c road frame and want to buy a cyclocross frame. My inclination is to go a bit smaller 58/59 for more stability, etc. Right/wrong/indifferent?

What is the common wisdom about cyclocross sizing? any advice?

watch out for standover height with the generally higher bbs and fatter tires. But TT length should be about the same as your road bike, or maybe just a tad shorter, IMO.
Rule of thumb is one size down from your road bike... (nm)The Walrus
