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.
Introduced in 2000 the Tifosi brand was one of the first customised bike brands of the new millennium. The intention was to inspire European component parts makers in the face of the transfer of large scale bike building to the Far East. After all, bespoke tailoring has always been the hallmark of quality. The Tifosi are enthusiastic supporters of the sport in Italy which is where Chicken’s Columbus tubing originated, now produced under the CK Columbus brand name in the Far East. Tifosi frames are powder coated to the highest quality in Belgium and built in-house to customers’ specification, using a variety of group sets, wheels and parts. The build kits and group sets offer component mixes in terms of balance and extraordinary good value. Quality brand name parts are all too evident – Campagnolo, Mavic, Selle Italia, Gruppo 3T, Vredestein, T.A., Selcof – are European components well known for performance and reliability.
