I have multiple Cyclocross bikes, but I also have a lower cost Trek Dual Sport. The Dual Sport can take 700x45 tires and is well suited for hilly country roads and gravel. I'm going to add Trekking handlebars.



Sure, Cyclocross bikes can provide a wide range of performance, but for climbing rural roads, a flat bar bike is very useful.
