this might be a sacrilegious question to even ask here but....
I've been offered a kind of interesting bike for sale. A Colnago cyclocross bike, 3-years old, fitted with full Dura Ace.
I was thinking that besides the simple prestige of owning a Colnago, it might be a good alternative to a fine road bike for certain types of road riding -- like in the country on rougher roads, or even around the city with the all the lousy potholes and such.
Would a cyclocross bike be a good everyday ride, even if I wasn't doing cross country? Would $700 be a reasonable price for such a beast? What would the downsides be (weight?)
