Always ridden a MTB but bought a Trek 1200 back in 2004 just to have a crack at road riding.
Still enjoy both, but looking to get a new road bike, 1200 is finally close to the end.
Now I can't decide to Go with Road or Cyclo Cross, although I'm leaning towards Cyclo Cross.
I don't intend to race, but rather reasonable length rides on my own or small groups.
Want something that's capable of a 100km ride from time to time, but will generally be around 40-60km's.
Where I live there are plenty of smooth paths, but there are also lots of hard packed stone / forest paths which are just about doable with my 1200, but a full on road bike would struggle or not have a chance.
Thinking of getting a spare set of wheels with 700 x 25 for just road and then standard nobbles for rough ride exploring.
Although it still needs to be light enough for hauling up a mountain climb on the road
I ride all weather hence would like disk brakes....my rims and brake blocks took an absolute hammering this winter.
Just had a quick look at the Specialized Crux Elite, which isn't bad, plus the Cube cross race.
So, anyone else crossed this bridge, pros and cons, any recommendations on other bikes to check out.
