My n+1 bike is going to be a cx. Here's why:
I am not happy riding anything but a drop bar. Riding my upright Bianchi hybrid made me feel miserable this past week. But I had no choice. The weather wouldn't allow for anything but wide 35mm studded tires. I was completely vulnerable to the 20-35km/h wind. If it don't get you in the morning it'll get you in the afternoon. I felt scrunched up riding in this position. Completely miserable.
I need a lightweight cx bike with these same studded tires. So the search begins. Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot in the used market at the moment.
Who among you ride a CX bike on your commute? And what are your opinions on this idea?
