Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza".

I vote for the felt. It was my second choice. I have a kona major one. I wanted AL after racing on a gear steel bike last year.

I would vote for the Felt also, but mostly because I subjectively feel like the Nature Boy is more of an all-around type bike and not a racer. The Redline may be the best race bike of the group, but ENO means one set of wheels.

The Redline with an eccentric external bottom bracket could work. I can't remember who makes it, but I know such a thing exists.
