cross bikes like the two in your links are for tours or light mtb rides with road in it.
cross bikes for racing are more like road bikes with knobby tires and old style mtb brakes, no disc brakes, no suspension, road bars(not straight).
for what type of cross bike are you looking?

he could also be looking for a light touring bike as this is the CX/touring forum, but the question holds, what type of riding will you be doing?

I guess I'm looking for that.

As allready said, this is going to be my first "real" bike so I'm not quite sure where I end up. But mostly I'm gonna drive on the road and here and there in the forrest or elswhere in the nature. My english isnt that good, dont know how these "roads" are called. sorry.
But not in the mud or anything like that. Hard ground only.

I'm gonna do 50km or so per week. I do also other sports so cycling's gonna be just one of them.

I hope this helps.

What about this one? I guess no light MTB possible... or?
