So I narrowed my choices down to a few bikes for various reasons and I need your guys' help to decide on one, one of the bigger reasons is because I know fuck all about components, and I need this community's hand to lead blind eyes. I've attempted to get help from other communities as well, not because I don't enjoy this one, but just to gain as much knowledge as I can, I formatted a really long thread for this so please forgive me while I spam my thread, I'll polite-sage after the initial post though. I know a lot of you have probably read my redundant ass threads, and I am sorry for that, please bear with me.
I used to be an avid runner until I severely damaged my foot resulting in a long downtime that took a long while to rehabilitate, but I've since been ready to get back into shape and I've chosen Cycling to be my obsession for that aspect in my life. I ride a Fuji Nevada at work, some offroad sections of my work require a tough bike, which is why we use that one specifically, but we can bring our own bikes, and while I intend on getting my own bike and using it at work, I also want to use it every day for around a 30 mile ride on smoother terrain (aslphalt, packed dirt, pavement) as well, so a dual function bike of sorts, which is why I decided on the versatility and toughness of a CX bike. I do need a bike for touring as well, a whole west coast tour, but we'll see how this plays out first.
