Recommending one bike for the sport is impossible, as there are now dozens of options and a CX bike from almost every major brand for any budget. Starter bikes for CX from Redline or Raleigh come in just over $1,000 fully built and will do the job. High-end options include the Moots' Psychlo-X Cyclocross, a $3,095 frame that's made of titanium and has a lower bottom bracket and shorter chainstays for speed and control. In addition to its light weight and strength, corrosion-resistant titanium is an optimal metal for this sport of mud and grime.
