Trying CX: Hybrid or MTB
I am not going to miss another season, but I own too many bikes to buy another. Trying to figure out which bike would be better suited so a newbie CX racer (cat4 Roadie though).
In one corner I have a 06 Kona Dew Deluxe w/Nashbar Carbon CX Fork
And in the other corner, a 04(?) Giant NRS Air. Weird frameset I know, but it has good components.
I'm leaning towards the Kona, because it's lighter, simpler and the brake levers are already switched. If I put back on the trail tires it came with (no mud in NorCal during Sept-Dec), it's not so unlike the Kona Jake I used to own for commuting, just heavier (mainly wheels) with flat bars. Oh yeah, and the Dw can stop, unlike the Jake.
