Intermediate rider (raced in the 80ís; been running since; want to get back on a bike) looking for input. Iím considering a 2007 Cannondale Optimo 3. I donít ever see myself getting competitively into Cyclo-Cross, but this bike feels pretty good. I will use this bike to ďtrainĒ on with an outside chance that I eneter one or two raod races a year. One thing Iíve noticed is the braking seems a little off compared to what I would expect from a true road bike. Other than that, after a few 30 minutes rides, the bike feels great. I can accept that there are those who feel a cyclo-cross bike is just that- strictly for cyclo-cross. Are there folks out there who use a cyclo-cross as a road bike only? Opinions and advice appreciated.
