All terrains in one bike, a cyclocross bike is probably a good fit. But it won't be great at anything but a cyclocross course.

I keep it simple, I train on a 12x27 and race on a 12x25. In the case of race with extreme hills, I may opt for the 12x27, but I haven't found a race to need it yet.

I have saddle sore issues and want a emphasis on the bike short portion of the trisuit, so I am willing to go with a beefier pad. Which tri suit is the best in terms of bike shorts?
