As mountain bikers and cyclists, what's the ultimate bike for a winter blast?
Neil loves cyclocross, and he loves mountain biking. Scott has never ridden a cyclocross bike but he does have a very nice Canyon mtb hardtail.
We set up a test loop featuring a few of our local mountain bike trails. It was a varied loop and meant to push the cyclocross bike to its limits.
So, what would come out on top: mountain bike and baggies or cyclocross bike and lycra?
And, where is a cyclocross (dare we say it) better than a mountain bike and vice versa?
Neil and Scott have a blast on their bikes and find out.
