Insert cliche bike reccomendation thread here.
Ok all, I'm finally deciding that maybe I should buy a new bike for once.
The bikes main use would be commuting (all conditions), and ideally touring, even if it can't handle the same load as say, a long haul trucker.
Rack/Fender Mounts (with appropriate clearances)
Disc brakes (Would be my winter commuter, want the better wet braking)
Ideally a triple crank set (My knees hate hills on my double cranked road bike)
No carbon parts in the frame - carbon fork is ok.
Ideally it would be similar to a cyclocross bike geometry wise.
I really like my friends Lemond Poprad (shes upgraded to a triple 105 crank), but as well know those aren't available new anymore.
I like the look of the Salsa La Cruz - even though I'd need p-clips to mount a rack and it comes with a double crank.
Any other suggestions?
