I got a promotion at work and I'm supervising now. This means more computer time for forums and more money for bikes I don't need but want. As an added bonus, I no longer have to drive clients to locations so I can finally bicycle to work. It's been my dream to be able to bike to work and it's finally coming true. Winter is coming and New England weather can be tough.
I'm interested in a CX
or a MT bike but I'm unsure of which is a better choice for myself. Any opinions on CF vs Al? I read this forum while I travel.
