I just got a Lemond Poprad (I also have a Lemond Sarthe road bike) .. both orange couldn't help myself. Anyway, I know I can't compare the ride qualities of a road bike to a cross bike. But they both have the True Temper Ox Platinum steel frame. Wheelsets and tires are different (Sarthe- Mavic Open Pro/Record... Poprad- Bontrager Select) And obviously tires (700c x 23 vs. 35). The Sarthe corners like a Porsche even at very high speeds. I don't feel nearly as comfortable cornering even at moderate speeds on the Poprad for some reason. Is it the tires? Continental GP4000 vs Bontrager Jones.
Thanks for your help!
