True CX bikes are ill-suited to recreational riding so these new bikes that blend parts road bike, parts mountain bike, parts cruiser bike, parts hybrid bike and parts CX bike are becoming the all-round bike of the future.
As seen in the Fairdale Weekender, they have nearly the same geometry as the famous Bridgestone X0-1. Niner Bikes in its new RLT 9 and every other bike manufacturer is making an old-school all-round bike. They look like CX bikes but in reality they are a completely different animal, which is makes them so versatile.
