I'm looking into buying a Cyclocross bike, which I would use mostly for commuting, lighter touring, and occasional races for fun. So far in my search, the Genesis Croix de Fer seems to be the best match, both for its versatility and its aesthetics (I like the more classic look). But it's not sold in the US. Any advice on some similar bikes that I should check out?
I've also looked at the Charge Filter. Any idea if these are good quality and value? The only downside seems to be that it's a little heavier.
Anyone have suggestions for similar bikes I should check out?
There are two classic steel cross frames that you should check out: the surly cross check and the soma cross (which comes in a few different flavors). I've been riding a soma doublecross for years and love it as an all round bike.
