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.
About the Focus brand

So if you are riding a Focus bike it will offer exceptional pound for pound performance and offer unbeatable value for money! Each Focus bike is handbuilt in their factory near Hamburg in Germany where they are meticulously tested and fitted with market leading components from brands such as Shimano, Ritchey, FSA, Magura, Hayes, SRAM, RockShox, Fox, Lightweight and Campagnolo. Then once they arrive in the UK they are setup and tested by Wiggle's own team of CyTech trained mechanics in their state of the art workshop.

There are two ways of measuring the right FOCUS frame size for you.
1 - Using your inside leg measurement: Measure your inside leg measurement, ideally with a folding rule and in your cycling gear of underclothes. Stand up straight and measure the height from the ground to your crotch in centimetres. Multiply the measurement as follows:
Racing bike: Inside leg measurement x 0.66
2 - Using your height: See the table above for the relevant measurements (please note sizes are approximate). If you prefer a sporty riding style, opt for a slightly smaller frame size. If you like touring, the frame can be a little larger.
