So here is the thing...At 6'2" 240# with pack I am commuting 27 miles round trip on my cannondale caad 9 roadie. My commute takes me right through a city park with 20 plus miles of single track. Even with CX tires on, I am not going to ride my carbon fiber forks on ANY trails especially without disc brakes. I have no desire to ride my R.I.P. 9 to work as it is already being ridden VERY hard 3x a week. So, what do you guys think of this thing?

I have ALWAYS wanted a Lynskey, Blacksheep, or Jones, but am sure that the price would send my wife right over the edge! So, this seems an affordable way to get the look I crave with the ridability I need. I would definitely put some mtn drops on it eventually...
