Specialized CX 56 CM
High quality cyclocross bike from a great manufacturer. 9 speed triple means this is a serious, climb anything bike. Angel and I both think if you are going to have one bike, let it be cyclocross. Jon and Tyson may also agree, but mostly it is Angel and I that discuss this specific topic. You can ride lots of dirt but still keep up with most people on a road bike. And the more relaxed geometry is perfect for light touring and heavy commuting.
Size, center-to-center, seat tube: 56 CM
