2015 Giant TCX SLR 2

I figured a cyclecross bike would be best for its versatility.

Combination of commuting and then flipping tires for adventure racing.

Make sense? From your experience, would it still be suitable for AR?

Nice bike! But unfortunately most adv races don't allow cross-bikes.

You can always rent one anyway, it'll actually save you money from repairs to an existing bike.

'Most' meaning the majority of Ontario races...(including Wilderness Traverse)?

Shitty...but I'll mostly be using it to commute and take some longer boots around the city.

You probably picked the right bike to buy for all-round use and you can always get a mtb later for AR.
