How To Set Up Your Cyclo-Cross Bike

Video by Global Cycling Network

‘Cross bike setup is a bit different to setting up your road bike. Here are a few tips to get you started.

With its technical nature, it pays to have a well set up cyclo cross bike. By this, we’re mainly talking about tyres and your position.

You’ll need to change your position a little bit from your road bike.

Tyre pressures are much lower than a road bike – Simon explains all in the video.

Gearing is different too – shoot for a 46 outer ring and a cassette that’s around 11-28.

We’d recommend playing around with the release tension on your pedals. There aren’t any hard and fast rules, so again, get out on your bike with an allen key and play around to find out what works for you.
