I am fairly new to cycling and I am looking to purchase my second bike and I want a heavy duty road/cyclocross style bike that I can also use for touring in the future.
Here are the three bikes I am looking at and would like suggestions as to which is the better one to go with. If you were to chose, which one would you go with? Which is the better deal for the components you get?
Trek Crossrip elite
Specialized Tricross elite
Thanks and if you have any other suggestion of bikes in this category let me know.
