Big cities aren’t considered optimal for dedicated cyclists, who typically feel like penguins in a city full of sharks and polar bears. While navigating the city streets has dramatically improved thanks to initiatives like protected bike lanes, lower speed limits, and more visibility and numbers, one very important thing is still missing. Space.
People with just one bike can usually squeeze it into an apartment—hopefully out of the way of roommates and neighbors. But if you want to have a road bike as well as a commuting bike? Or a trail bike? Forget it. Maybe you can toss hangers on the walls and turn your place into a bike stable, but it’s not in the cards for most city slickers.
So here we are. You need a bike that can do it all. You need a cyclocross bike. You need this cyclocross bike. You need it right now, you strapping young two-wheeled filly.
