I am 5'2" and I had some trouble finding a CX bike small enough to fit me. This one (the 44 frame size) fits me just fine. I have ridden it on gravel and paved bike trails, freshly graded gravel roads, paved country roads and a little bit on "easy" single track. Its lightness and speed compared to my hybrid bike and 29er is amazing. It is probably just me and probably goes completely against the spirit of cyclocross, but I wish there was a lower gear for hill climbing, especially on loose gravel when biking into the wind! I will be riding it in a race that combines off road, gravel roads, paved roads, rail trails and some killer hills in a couple weeks. I may have more to report then.
