My first ever cross bike has arrived today, it's 2nd hand to me but almost brand new! The only thing I have to compare it against is my 1998 Ribble road bike, and things have moved on a bit since then.
I'll be using it for cummuting, and a few local cross races next season hopefully, and maybe the 3 peaks.
What angle should the bars be at, they feel more comfy than my old bars, but the hoods feel 'high'. Are they supposed to be for off road riding?
I've dropped the seat about 1" from the pic, but again should cx bikes be arse up head down, or bars/saddle more at a level?
Finally what type of pressures should you ride off road, I weigh approx 80kg.
Any other advice appreciated
