Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I've been debating this, and the Fantom Uno (singlespeed version) for use as a commuter as well as an intro to riding on something other than pavement. Will watch this thread.

The UNO doesn't really share anything with the rest of the line. Completely different frame with different parts hanging off of it.

They're all good deals, assuming that you know how to turn a wrench by yourself.
