Hi again! I'm totally uneducated in the bike world but I'm thinking of getting a bike to supplement my running, adding a bit of swimming and then having a go at a sprint tri next year! After a bit of reading and scouring the web I think that a cyclocross bike would be a decent option as it will be happy on it off road. I'd been looking at a specialized tricross online which is about ??900 but then saw the Norco CCX 3 Compact 2012 on sale much cheaper than the specialized....... So I was therefore wondering if anyone had any experience of the norco or could tell me anything about the difference between the two from the spec. Thanks!
