I have not intention of getting involved in cyclocross racing nor will this bike be taken on singletrack. I already own 3 mountain bikes for my singletrack riding. I am trying to sell one and if it sells I want a bike for 40-60 mile excursions on a local trail system called the Clinton River Trail. The trail consists of blacktop, gravel roads and fire roads. I wil basically use it like a road bike but on this terrain. I refuse to ride on the roads with people not paying attention while driving.
I am leaning towards the Hakkalugi because I own the Ibis Ripley and love it. I think the Warbird though would end up being around $800 cheaper. I like that the Hakkalugi is carbon framed and will probably absorb the bumps better than the Alum Warbird. If the bikes were the same price it would be a no brainer to get the Hakkalugi but with the Warbird being $800 cheaper just want to make sure I should shell out the extra cash for the Hakkalugi. Any experience with either bike would help. I have read all the reviews I could find on both bikes and both bikes have very positive reviews. Let me know what you think.
