I took my CCX out three separate times today. I just love riding it. One thing I learned - it's VERY hard to ride with one hand! My son and I went to play basketball and I held the ball in my left hand. That meant no throttle. It was incredibly difficult to ride the CCX with a basketball! I was too lazy to pop a basket on the rack or look for our rack netting but I sure will next time! It's just a large heavy bike and control was a major issue.
