Second! While I love my LHT as well, a cyclocross bike, or any road style bike that lets you mount wider tires (700X 33, 35, 40, etc) would give you a softer ride than the skinny road bike tires,...

700x35 Schwable Marathon Plus, on both bikes. Neither bike is a racer, but my LHT has worn these tires for the last 2000 miles, and I have not had a single flat.

Proofhide and a rain cover, like others have said, does wonders when there are fenders on the bike.
