Re: Cyclocross or Hybrid ?

I was the same, my old Raleigh SuperSport had those....:-)

To be honest, you get used to it. Plus, with more powerful brakes (mini-V or disk) you can brake quite effectively from the hoods, there's no need to go to the drops...

Re: Cyclocross or Hybrid ?

I don't like drop bars, i prefer bull bars like these(or flat bars at a MTB) :

You can add parts to build an aero bar as well.

I had the same question, checked many forums, visited several bike stores, discussed with people, tried different bikes, and finally ended up buying a Diverge Elite DSW:

https://www.specialized.com/ch/de/bikes/road/diverge

They are similar to cyclocross, but more towards road bikes while keeping the good features: typically you don't need to run with a bike over your shoulder, but it's good to have the option to go a bit off-road and enjoy the added comfort compared to traditional road bikes. Plus compatibility with fenders and a rack (usually not available with road bikes) come handy for daily commuting and day trips.

I'm using the bike for daily commuting, as well as for day trips and am very satisfied so far. Previously I had a Merida trekking, and compared to that the new one is like flying. Even uphill..
Did you also consider/try the Slate?
