still having troubles deciding on a cx bike (versatility)...
so...i've been trying to find a cx bike for myself. at first, i wanted maximum versatility. i wanted front and rear eyelets/braze-ons...i wanted the bike to be able to be a chamaeleon...tourer, utility, cyclocross, road bike, light off road duty, eveything. and i thought maybe the motobecane fantom cross or motobecane fantom cross pro might be best.
but then...i got it in my head that i wanted an all out performance cx bike. ridley...colnago...bianchi...whatever. in fact, i went down to one of my LBS's and considered getting a custom Gunnar Cross Hair or a Blue CXC.
but now i'm back wanting a versatile bike like the motobecane. so...why don't i get the motobecane? because i'm a snob! i like the idea of getting a bike with a little snob factor...but STILL have front and rear eyelets/braze-ons for versatility. however...it doesn't seem like any of the snob appeal brands make versatile bikes...they only make performance bikes.
am i wrong? can someone recommend me a versatile bike that's also not something you see everyday?
