I wanna purchase a new bike. I usually ride road, but am interested in trying cross, too. My current roadie needs to go. What's the better way to go: purchase a road bike that can be converted to cross when necessary (what does this entail?), or purchase a cross bike that can be converted to road when necessary (just changing to slicks? pedals from mtn to road, maybe?)
I guess the weight of a cx bike might be an issue?
