What the Hee Haw - I've been to several shops and EVERYONE has the best CX bike. Do I really need to spend $2000 CAN to $3000 CAN to learn to ride cross?
The best bang for buck seems to be the Kona - Jake the Snake, but a fella at a local shop told me they were absolute crap because of their welding and lack of FULL 105 kit. Man I remember when I got my fist mountain bike - a Rocky Mountain Team Comp for $800 bucks, what has happened to cycling?
Any suggestions on a reasonably priced and bomb proof steed?
All the best!
