JUST A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM MY OTHER BIKE...
Well, yes and no.
As I have discussed (at length) before - there is a lot of good and bad info out there about bike fitting and selecting the right size frame. One of the more common topics I run into this time of year is how to select the right size of Cyclocross bike.
A common guideline I have heard is that you ought to size-down from your road bike frame size to obtain the right 'cross frame. As a universal guideline, this couldn't be more WRONG! There are instances where this may apply, but I would say that they are rare now. It is a unique bike and just like you wouldn't adjust your road bike a "little different from your road bike"; treat your cyclocross bike like and individual and get it right.
