I just bought a Trek 6500D and I ride the trails in and around Southwood. I have a number of friends who are mountain bikers. I want to get to a level so that I could not trail too far behind them.
I am also interested in getting a cyclocross bike for light trails and, maybe, commuting. I have a pretty stiff neck so I want the most upright geometry and stem for a 56cm frame. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
