I do it all on my Cannondale 9Ball. Money is part of it these days as I have way less than in the late 90's, and having 4 kids helps with priorities as well. "Do I REALLY need it?" I did my first Crit in over 10 years on it, and it felt every bit a nice as I remember my Klien Quanum Pro did back in the day. MY cx bike just fits me. Id love a smoother ride for longer road miles, but I'll live.
