I'm after a cyclocross bike through the Cycle2work scheme, as my journey to work across Cannock Chase strikes me as perfect territory for one - faster than the MTB I currently use but won't fall to bits on the off-road sections.
The main problem is I haven't ridden a road bike since I was about 8 years old, so I have no idea what size or shape I'm after. So where can I try some before deciding which to go for?
I've been to the Specialized Concept Store in Birmingham today (it's a straaaange place, that Fort Dunlop) which was useful - my 5'11" self seems to fit a 52" Tricross, although that's after a quick leg-over test rather than anything more thorough. What other bike shops around will have a few I can nose at, have a quick go on, and possibly get one from when the time comes?
As close as possible to Cannock would be nice, although I'm willing to travel to find the right bike.
