So my sister mentioned her husband is selling his cross bike, a 45 cm Fort. It doesn't look like they sell that size anymore so I haven't found any details. And I don't even remember what size my road bike is... but that said, any thoughts on these bikes? Thought it might work on my commute once the snow is gone...rugged enough for the 1.3 mi of dirt, but alot faster than the MTB for the pavement. Not sure if I can get up the hill without the triple, though (3.5 mi, 1000' up). I am in or pretty close to lowest gear going up on the MTB now, though that is with my heavy studded tires, batteries, etc.
