    New bike suggestions

    Hi,


    I am looking for a replacement for my current bike. I think it has reached the time for a replacement. It has been causing troubles for the past the month even after services.


    I am seeking help to find the perfect bike for me. I usually ride almost 15kms (between home and work). And occasionally I go for free rides too. I am especially looking for hybrid bikes since I tend to go off road from time to time. I am thinking about ordering a Cannondale Bad Boy 1 and doing a bike tune up for my old one.


    Please let me know what are your opinions about this. Is this the perfect option? Is there any better options for my use?.

    Nice ride, although, most around here will probably say no to Hybrid, have you consider a Cyclocross bike, or a Gravel bike? They are very versatile bikes, and Cannondale has some nice models. These bikes will be much safer off road than a Hybrid, you get drop bars with multiple hand positions, and they do quite well on the road. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the suggestion. But will a cyclocross bike handle sand?.

    It depends on how much sand, fat bike sand? Beach?

    Gravel bikes tend to have wider tires, than CX bikes. I use my Gravel bike in all kinds of dirt, including sandi horse trails. If you can, I highly recommend a steel frame. The comfort is amazing compared to allu. It also rides great on pavement.
