The Ultimate All Rounder
Cyclocross frames are perfect for negotiating muddy and ever-changing cross-racing circuits and are designed using lightweight technology that puts complete control in the hands of the rider. Also known as CX or CXB bikes, cyclocross bikes come with a drop bar and are purpose-built for competitive riding. Cyclocross frames allow for fast riding in both road and off-road settings. With a CX frame, you can create a bike that is versatile and offers you a lightweight and responsive ride.
Does the Dolan cyclocross bike frameset come with a warranty?

Are cyclocross bikes slower than road bikes?
This depends entirely on the bike specifications, as well as the terrain you’re riding on. In general, however, cyclocross bikes can be quicker than road bikes (especially on racing routes). If you’re looking for a fast bike for racing, then we recommend opting for a cyclocross bike frameset. However, if you’re looking for more of an all-rounder, it might be worth looking at our road bike range.
Can cyclocross bikes be used for touring?
Thanks to their exceptional geometry and handling, cyclocross bike frames can handle bike touring quite well. Although Dolan does offer a carbon Gravel Bike frame that has touring in mind with its design.
Can cyclocross bikes go off-road?
Yes! Cyclocross bikes are ideal for short off-road routes thanks to the drop handlebar and lightweight frame. In fact, it’s why they were designed in the first place. Shop our range of cyclocross carbon frames above for more information.
