With spring here, its time to get my own wheels (been borrowing my wife's Dew). I'm of two minds, one is to get a Cyclocross the other is a hybrid. Will be riding on roads and flat, fairly smooth gravel bike trails. I'm edging toward Cyclocross because of the handlebars and they're more what I'm used to (road bike).
Of the Cyclocross bikes, I've narrowed to the Kona Jake or the Specialized Tricross Triple. They seem to be in the same price point (my local dealer has the 2009 Jake the Snake for the same price as the 2010 Jake - $999cdn, but its a 58cm, I'm 56cm) .
Of these which would be the better choice?
