Cyclocross = the steeplechase of bike riding: mud, dirt, obstacles to jump over (either on or off the bike), sweat, pain, climbs and descents, and testing yourself to see how much you really have. Sound like your daily commute or weekend ride? If so, the Steilacoom CCX is for you. With both cross top and traditional road brakes stopping is easy no matter where your hands are on the handlebars. Cantilever brakes found on the Steilacoom have better leverage than regular road bike brakes to aid your stopping in all conditions. And, with 18 gears to chose from the hills become less of a big deal. Don’t let the elements stop you from getting your blood pumping and your legs spinning – hop on a Steilacoom and take off.
