cyclocross for ~$800?
 
yes I want the both world of commuting + occasionally on the road!

but I am new & broke and budget is around $800 and on top of this I live in a city that rains half a year so disc brake would be nice but then the cost... :(

anyways I appreciate all your recommendations
Thank you

Jamis Nova Sport is around that price and has disc brakes.

How about something like one of these? Don't know how mounting fenders/racks on them would work, but they're all ~$800 or less.

Go to www.nashbar.com and order the CX 1 Cyclocross bike. Next, add Kool Stop brake pads....DONE! :thumb:

I have a Fantom CX. Bought it in '09, still going strong 5300mi later and after falling off the back of a car at 85mph. :)
