    Anyone got any opinions on the Sepcialized Crosstrail range? I've a Trek 7.3 and a Dawes Discovery 201 at the moment. Neither are bad bikes, but the Trek has seen better days and I think the Dawes is at the limit of its capacity with me - between myself and the stuff I carry to work it's taking about 115kg! I can do the cycle to work scheme, so looking at a replacement. I'd like a road bike, but frankly wouldn't trust the wheels not to buckle under the loads (the potholes around Cheltenham are woeful and in a lot of places you have no option but to go over at least a couple of them), so like the idea of something a bit more rugged, but that still goes well enough on-road since that's 99% of my riding..
