you will notice it has mounts for canti-brakes - the geometry puts the bottom bracket a bit higher than a road bike - it is made to be able to be "shouldered" easier for carrying in across obsticles and there is more clearance for running knobby cross tires.

those wheels are the zipp 404 cross wheels by the way (but FACTORe, why do you need deep dish carbon wheels on a cross bike, you don't go that fast?) - they make mud holes on cross coarses on purpose - the deep dish wheels shed mud where as traditional wheels get bogged down in the deeper mud when the mud gets in the spokes

No need to shoulder your bike and carry it across obstacles when you do this.  ;D

that is all good until they put the boards close enough or spaced where you can't bunny hop

no way I can bunny hop like that on a cross bike anyway

well it would look just like when Gregg did the log crossing at Santos on the epic ride. You sure missed it. Envision instant OTB.

By regulation, they have to be certain distance space between them.  I think...  at least the height of them is.  If you can bunny hop like Brian Lopez then maybe you should be writing a book about it... :-)

FE, as for your bike... you needs kids like the rest of us.  We can afford bikes because all of our extra money goes into our kids.  No wonder you can't afford a trip to Dauset now.   ;D I hope to see you on the MTB trails one day....  ;)
