Welcome to the new Cross Bike Review!

We first discovered Crono shoes at Interbike and immediately liked what we saw. The Crono’s booth was in the Italian Pavilion and they had a prime corner lot at that show. Their road shoes were really hot and their MTB line was attractive as well. Once we found out who the distributor was we immediately set out to do a review and see if we could go over and visit the factory in Italy. We got a yes to both of those questions. When we arrived at the factory we were warmly greeted by Stefano Stocco. He is the son of the owner. His father founded the company in 1973.

Interbike Moving Locations

This morning we got up to get on a conference call from the interbike communications department and  VP of interbike, Pat Hus. After attending interbike for 13+ years I have always heard talk that it should move to a different location. Apparently Las vegas can get old after so many visits.

While at this years Sea Otter we ran across a company, Alto Cycling. Alto Cycling makes some prey high tech hoops and so we took some time to hang out with them and pretty soon it was obvious that this was no ordinary wheel company. The first clue was when Bill Shook came over and hung out chatting with them for about 40 min asking questions and giving compliments on their hubs. If you know who Bill is then you know this is high praise. It’s really important that you get the know the company that you are getting your wheels from. Who are they?
