Cyclocross and gravel bikes
I'm confused. What's the difference between gravel and cyclocross bikes? I watched a couple videos but that did not help with my clarity Smile
What is your point of view?
Whoosh, this is quite a question!
I like how GCN replied: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIFQzWWYg7w (from 7:00)
Focus Mares AL 105
To me they are both the same haha
I personally see cyclo-cross as racing bikes, while gravel bikes are more multi-purpose, more about endurance and will adapt to multiple day trips better. Here is another article, from cyclingnews: https://www.cyclingnews.com/features/the-cyclo-cross-vs-gravel-bike-conundrum-understanding-the-differences/

Thank you!
