I want a do it all bike, mixed surface commuter, light tourer, maybe cx racer.
Narrowed it down to the following……
Cannondale CAADX either 3 (105 kit) or 5 (ultegra)
Or jake the snake
All come with cable discs.
I am leaning towards one of the dales on the basis they are a bit lighter and u get more for your cash, but like the look of the tapered head tube on the kona. I appreciate I’m splitting hairs here though.
I can’t comment on the bikes you’ve listed but I have been told by my LBS that Ridley have a 2015 cyclocross bikes called the X Bow that will have mudguards and mounts for a rack. He showed me a picture and it looks great, it’s a flat grey colour and has brown bar tape and Ridley have the pedigree of producing some of the best CX bikes around. He also said expected SPR is going to be under a grand.
Or you could go for a Croix de Fer…….. TAXI!
