    You got it right then! That Merida looks more gravel grinder style to me than cyclocross. I'd recommend more cyclocross racer style if you want something to do the road as much as the dirt, because...

    I think you need to make sure you realize what a 29'er can handle that a CX bike cannot. CX is a much broader range of ideal situations, but I would say on a real trail...

    I have TRP Hylex brakes on my CX bike, and I have to say I'm quite impressed with quality of build. Nicer than Hayes & Avid, but not Shimano.

    There'll be a $3k lower modulus carbon and 105 groupset of this bike in one or two years. They just have to get the most they can out of being one of the first solely racer makers to...

    Fast + balanced ride + not screaming attention from bling and/or color + durable components that aren't another bike in cost to replace = Perfect bike.

    My RXS is made to be a beauty in simplicity, but this simplicity didn't only take away shifting! It also doesn't have any place to put a bottle cage. I tried out a saddle-rail cage setup, but I had...

    I've had that mud lockup before! Good memory actually. But I'd recommend buying a clamp-on rear fender as an option.
