I called the nearest Cannondale dealer and asked if he had a CAADX bike in stock. He stated "No-one rides Cyclocross bikes." I replied "Then why do they make them?" He said "Well no-one rides them around here." After stateing that I wanted a commuter for a big guy He said he had a Raleigh Record Ace that would make an excellent commuter. He quoted $1199 which is a good deal. Said it was a 2010 returned after a week. I think the tires are too narrow (23s) I want 28 min. Any thoughts.
