I am looking for a new bike. I want something light & fast like a road bike, but with the capability to take some beefier tires for riding on logging roads. (no hardcore mtn biking).
Is there something out there that fits this description?
I was looking at the Trek FX 7.3, but I've read it sucks offroad. Why is that? What would be so bad about taking it offroad?
I read an article written a few years ago by a guy that won offroad races with a road bike. Maybe they were more heavy-duty back then.
