Looking to purchase new bike

I am looking to purchase a new bike. I am currently a cat4 riding a steel univega with campy 8spd.

I have a budget of about $2k, and am looking for at least an aluminum frame with carbon dropouts, and ultegra 10spd.

I found a Giant OCR C2 with ultegra 10spd and shimano R550 wheels for $1,900. Any comments, suggestions or advice is appreciated. Thanks.

try the cannondale R1000. ultegra 10 speed, mavic ksyrium's, and ultegra 10. The frame is all aluminum, but it has been said that it is one of the most comfortable aluminum rides around. The CAAD 8 frame has been ridden to all sorts of pro wins, so you know it is up to the task
