About Cyclocross Bikes
Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bike, they are lightweight, with narrow tyres and drop handlebars. However, they also share characteristics with mountain bicycles in that they utilize knobby treaded tyres for traction, and cantilever style brakes for the clearance needed due to muddy conditions. They have to be lightweight because competitors need to carry their bicycle to overcome barriers or slopes too steep to climb in the saddle. The sight of competitors struggling up a muddy slope with bicycles on their shoulders is the classic image of the sport, although un-ridable sections are generally a very small fraction of the race distance. Cross bikes also make good winter bikes or commuters, their frames have plenty of clearance which allows for mudguards, while the upright angles make them agile around town, meaning you can hit the trails at the weekend and then fit some road tyres and commute on them during the week.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
A key consideration may be to reflect on the size of cycle you usually like. If you prefer to ride something on the smaller side, enjoying plenty of crossbar clearance and a more lively ride, I might be inclined towards the Medium size. If you usually like a bigger frame, with perhaps steadier ride, the large may suit you better.
By way of comparision, having carefully checked the measurements, the set up I have with the Medium-framed Filter Apex is identical to that I have for my 56 cm Genesis Day One.
