Hmmm....we just had this discussion on my running club's boards. From one of our cyclists:<br><br>
"A cyclocross bike is like a mountain bike with bigger tires. Kind of.<br><br>
The cyclocross has the brake system of a mountain bike-cantilever or disk giving more clearance between the tire and frame/brakes but uses the 700 mm wheels/tires of a road bike instead of the smaller diameter 26" mountain bike wheels and tires. The cyclocross also has the drop style handle bars of a road bike instead of the straight bars of a mountain bike.<br><br>
Plus, the frame of the cross bike is a little beefier, to take some offroad abuse, than that of a road bike<br><br>
So, if a road bike and mountain bike were able to have sex <img alt="shock.gif" src=""> , I guess this is what their offspring would look like."<br><br>
JR or Ronbo will have more technical details.

Sorry to the OP for how this thread has degraded. Did the same on our running boards when we discussed the merits of road bikes dating/having illicit affairs with bad boy mountain bikes or the suave TT bikes.<br><br>
