I've had the Apex-equipped 2012 Tricross disc for just short of two years now. I bought it as a "winter" bike and it's perfect for that. There's plenty of clearance for aggressive tires, even studs, and no issues with braking when the water/slush is splashing on everything. The stock tires are too smooth for these duties, but they are great for late-season road commuting when there's lots shoulder debris. The relatively upright position is good in traffic. A race-oriented 'cross bike would have quicker steering, but be harder to control on snow and ice. I've also used this bike on my share of local gravel, including upper Magnolia and Sugarloaf. With an aluminum frame, disc brakes, and fairly heavy wheels, this is not a light bike but you can do stuff on it that you'd never attempt on your summer thoroughbred racer.
