I am looking to buy the cheapest cyclocross bike possible.
I am doing a 18 mile commute, mostly on road but also on some dirt roads and my road bike and its 23mm tyres just won't cut it.
I am also thinking of getting fenders and the like.
Looking around the best deal in terms of price I can see is bikes direct ($450). Are there any other places to check out? Looking for durability over anything else.
