New guy here on the forums. I just purchased my first bike in my adult life. I got a cyclocross bike for it's versatility. I always enjoyed bmx and mountain biking when I was younger so I figured a CX bike would allow me to still get off-road for some fun in the dirt while also being a practical commuter for me. I've been using it to commute to work and to ride on some local trails here so far. It's all coming back to me and I'm having more and more fun every time I go out pedaling. I think I'm gonna have to sneak out and ride by myself sometimes though because my wife complains whenever I pull away from her or jump off of the paved path on the local bike trails whenever I see a single track. :D I can't believe it's taken me this long to get back on the saddle, but I'm really glad I'm back.

As for my ride, I picked up a 2011 Cannondale Hi-Mod full carbon SuperX. Here's the link to it on the registry here: http://www.twospoke.com/cycle-registry/bryanc-561.html

I was planning on getting the '12 CAADX 5, but the shop had this 2011 SuperX, which was a demo bike that belonged to the regional C'dale rep, for only a few hundred more. Once I rode it, it was all over but the crying. The ride was so smooth, yet responsive. I walked out the door with it.

Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I'm glad to be here. I really like the feeling of these forums; seems really friendly. One question, is there a dedicated cyclocross forum on here? I don't see one on the main page.

??? Sorry, I'm not following. I may be a bit slow.
It was a link that lead to bridal gowns...spammer :D I should have just deleted it instead of the editing the link, my bad.
