need a little advice from you cycle cross folk
So here's my problem.
I own a cannondale road bike which i've been using a single gear in NY for many years. I moved out to the countryside and currently live on a dirt track. We have many simple trails in the woods in the area as well as many dirt roads to explore BUT my road bike is not up to the job and does not take the 35mm tires I want to use.
So i've checking out the forum for the last week and I want to know
A. Scattante XRL Cross Frame /fork.
B. Nashbar X crosscyle frame with carbon fork.
These are the two set ups that im debating over for my single gear, go anywhere, be all you can be bike.
I've also been reading a little about the geometry of the cycle cross and i was wondering how close it compares to touring frame geometry.
I do own a Bianchi Volpe and love the feel of that bike.
So thanks for any opinions and advice anyone has for me.
- one last questions -
Will it be tough to put my 700c wheels on to a cc frame if they are only 130mm instead of 135mm ?
