I have 550$ to spend on a new commuter. My old one was a Schwinn for sometime in the 70's, a 10 speed. I was looking at road bikes, but because I live in Minneapolis and would like to ride in the snow occasionally, I am turning to cyclocross. With my budget, someone recommended this motobecane fantom cx. I jumped on the bike, it looked great, and I ALMOST ordered it before I heard that bikesdirect may not be the best place to buy from. What would you recommend, should I buy this bike or is there something better out there?
