Decided

Decided to go cross bike instead of a touring bike, why? Because 99% of my riding will be commute. So, with that said, I'm looking at a Tricross Sport.

17.6 Chainstay
Option to add:
1. Fenders
2. Rear Rack

Does anyone here ride a Tricross Sport? Do you like your bike, pros and cons. Is there another bike out there with the same characteristits.

Not following your logic.

One of the bikes I commute on is a cyclocross bike, but I still don't consider it any more suitable to a commute than a touring bike. In fact, I'd prefer a touring bike, they're just harder to come by used.
