I was once getting ready for a ride on pavement and a troupe of CX'rs passed me. The last guy slowed and asked what I was riding, when I explained it to him I got a nice bike. A few seconds later I could hear him yelling to his fellow riders about the guy with the CX bike on roids.

It handles well on the few short trips I have taken off the paved path, just haven't gone fully offroad, but the tires it currently has would be my only concern since they don't have a lot of knobby treads. But I did save one of the old tires that would work well on the back.
