Question: Are cyclocross bikes good for road riding?

In all seriousness though, its perfectly acceptable to ride your cyclocross bike as a road bike and just use a spare set of wheels with narrower road tires. Its also perfectly fine to just ride on the road with the wider cyclocross tires and wheels that you already have.

Whats the difference between cyclocross and road bikes?

Cyclocross bikes are fitted with lower gears, to make it easier to go over uneven surfaces. Road bikes have higher gears, to provide the high speeds needed in road racing. Moreover, the narrow gear range ensures rapid shifting. Cyclocross bikes use wider tires, in the range of 30-40 mm with knobbly treads.

Are cyclocross bikes good for touring?

With a few adaptations a cyclocross bike can do everything from road riding to touring. Cyclocross bikes are one of the most versatile multi-use bicycles you could possibly buy.

Are cyclocross bikes good for gravel?

The short answer is, yes, you can. Cyclists regularly bring out their cyclocross bike for their favorite gravel road ride, and, in a pinch, a gravel bike will work decently enough on the cyclocross course to get you to the finish line.
