i come from the world of bmx freestyle, so i am a n00b when it comes to big bikes. bear with me.
i might buy a 2007 GT Legato 3.0 from a friend mostly as a commuter bike but i would like to use this bike for some recreational off-road riding as well. some companies make 700-28 knobbies, so what kind of riding could i do with this bike off-road? how aggressive of trails could i tackle with this bike? if it can't handle a little trails, i don't want to break it.
after doing a little more research, it looks like i basically want to turn my presumptive Legato into a cyclocross bike. would this work or should i look for a stronger bike?
it's the 2007 version of this bike- http://www.gtbicycles.com/usa/eng/Pr...rchived=t#5612
sorry for the double-post, but i am going to re-post this in the cyclocross forum.
