Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Cannondale Cyclocross

I have found the '04 Cannondale Cyclocross on sale for $879. I believe this is a great deal since it retails for $1100, and is equiped with 105 comps. How does this bike ride? I am going to test it this weekend, and don't want to "overlook" its ride due to the low price; I hear that all Cannondales are very stiff and hammer the body. It does have a front carbon fork and wider tires, if that means anything. Also, is there anything out there of similar quality for the same price or less that I should be looking at? Riding 100-120 miles a week, mainly on street, minimal off road--almost nothing. Don't want to race, I only want
serious miles and a intense workout without body damage.

I have a newer Cannondale road bike and it's not really stiff as far as I'm concerned. It has thin high pressure tires on it so natuarally it's going to hammer a little, but I don't find it that bad.
