    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

    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    me and a friend who rides ride motobecane from bikes direct. we are both pleased with our bikes. both of us paid less than $600 for our bikes.
