I am a roadie who's looking for a bike #2 to ride the winter, but also rainy days in the summer. I now ride a cyclocross bike (Lemond Propad) which I thought would do the job. However, the geometry soooooo different from my road bike that I find it difficult to switch between bikes.
So basically, I am looking for a frame with a relax road race geometry that can accomodate winter tires (700x35). Steel is the choice for comfort, but aluminium could also be considered.
