I've decided to get a road bike to train on and as a second bike to my Orange 5.
I think I'd be better with a CX bike as it may be used to commute along the canal and I think I'll be tempted to hop off a few curbs. I also like the idea of disc brakes as I don't think I can cope with braking on wet/muddy rims.
Or should I just embrace the dark side and get a proper road bike albeit one that is set up for winter use.
As an Orange lover I'm tempted by a RX9 but an alternative would be a Genesis CDF. Budget is limted to £1K as the bike is being bought on cycle to work therefore choice is limited as per the link. http://www.cyclesolutions.co.uk/cyclocross/c575?psize=50&sPrice=540&ePrice=1111
