Adventure Cycling Association: Touring Aboard a Cyclocross Bike

Cyclocross bikes make excellent Ultralight and light tourers.  I’ve been riding a Surly Travelers Check (a Surly Cross Check with S&S couplers) for two seasons and it’s been a great bike.  Check out ACA’s post on these versatile bikes!

Cyclocross bikes have been growing rapidly in popularity over the past few years, so their availability and selection are strong. Their geometry lies somewhere between that of a touring bike and a road bike. However, when trying to make a single bike work well for two very different disciplines (quick and light road riding and loaded touring), you’re bound to run into a few issues that need some tweaking. Here are some things to keep in mind.
