I've recently moved to Crawley in West Sussex and hear that the local riding spot (Tilgate Forest) isn't worth riding in the winter! As I don't want to spend time getting to and from my riding then the only thing i can think of is getting out on the tarmac. As a result I'm considering buying a cheapish road bike. The issue i have is that i already have a Genisis Vapour CX bike.
The question is will I really notice the difference by having a proper road bike when I could just chuck some slicks and guards on the the CX and use that on the black stuff?
Is this just a case of me looking for an excuse to buy yet another bike?
