Just about to get a CX bike - a Cannondale CAAD 9 (105) which seems to be a great bike, anyone got one - does it ride as well as it looks?
Replacing a road bike and need something that does everything... long commute (22 miles each way), light touring, training and maybe a few light trail sections/cycle paths (I have a good MTB for rough use). Did consider a Trek 69er (geared) which seemed light enough to be an all rounder - but I did like the road bike although always felt a bit overwhelmed on the UK's cr*p roads!
Also looked at Genesis croix de fer and discounted (too heavy - heavier than a light MTB!) and a Specialized Tricross - seems versatile but didn't light my fire as much as the 'dale did!
