This is my first winter biking but I decided on a CX bike for a couple of reasons. As discussed, larger tire clearance, fender mounts, disc brakes. Another logic that I used is that I can easily enter the CX world on my daily winter bike should I desire to go that route in the future. I've also ridden my CX bike on easy off-road adventures, dirt paths, gravel, or rutted out grass. It's faster and far more effective than an MTB, for example.

With that said I still have an MTB for deep snow, ice, or big time off road stuff. And for what it's worth I've been riding my road bike on clear days, so the CX solves that nice middle ground for me personally.

Went with a Felt F85X... love it!
