I welcome everyone's comments, but hope to here from Jon as I know he rides his cross bike a lot. I'm looking for a new bike that I can use to ride the gravel grinder rides in Kansas, as well as dirt roads around my home in Oklahoma. Would you recommend the Psychlo X for this type of riding? Do you know the max tire clearance for the Psychlo X. Also, I currently ride a 56 Vamoots and really like the geometry; particularly the taller head tube which provides a more upright comfortable position for me. I've noticed many cross bikes, including the Psychlo X have a longer top tube and shorter head tubes when comparing equal sizes. How do you size a cross frame? Would you look to the same size as your road bike or go down a size? I want to avoid a stretched out position on the bike, as well as tall stack height between the head tube and stem. Jon, if you're willing to share, how does the frame size differ between your road bike and cross bike? What would be your recommendations when sizing a cross bike in comparison to a comfortable 56 Vamoots?
