I'm not a gear head so you're not going to hear me talk about frame geometry, gear ratios, components or the like. It's better to leave that to people in the know. But I can tell you that I took this out on trail and asphalt and it was the most comfortable riding bike I've ever been on. It handled great on the trails and I was struck by the improvement in maneuverability over my road bike. Cyclocross racing is going to be even more fun next fall.
