A year ago I got a Kinesis Crosslight Pro6 (now for sale!) and have absolutely loved it. It's brilliant on the road and makes the usual N Downs trails a lot more entertaining! Now, after a year of waiting as all the 2013 ones just vanished, the Salsa Warbird has arrived! Suits me better than an out-and-out cross bike as I don't race cross, as the cables are all hidden under the top tube (I don't do carrying) and there is masses of mud room round the BB due to the bridgeless chainstays. Looking forward to the first ride tomorrow!
