Bike newbie here.
I love the idea of the cyclocross and being able to put a wide variety of tires on it. What I want it for is road-riding and logging road/fire road riding and basically every other kind of riding.
The thing is we have mountains here and I envision riding up & up & up & up a mountain road and then turning off onto some logging roads for some trail riding.
I won't be racing, won't be doing hardcore mtnbike trails.
Is there another kind of bike that would be better for me, or cheaper?
