I'm looking to jump into the cycling world with both feet this spring. What I am looking for is a bike for fitness/commuting/and possibly some charity events, club rides or even some gravel riding. . I'm looking for that elusive one quiver bike that will handle most fairly well. 75% of the time will be spent on paved roads. My budget is about $1500 and I am looking at either hybrids or CX bikes. I'd like to upgrade the bike as my skills improve, I'm looking for a fairly relaxed riding postion, I don't need the full on boy racer position, those days are long gone. I was thinking along the lines of the Giant anyroad, Giant fastroad or the specialized sirrus comp disc. Any opinions of the former or alternatives would be welcome.
