Does anybody have experience commuting with a Cannondale cyclocross? Was checking out a 2007 Optimo 3 the other day, it seems very nice, though I didn't ride it. I have my mind set on a steel frame (Cross Check), but don't want to rule out any options. The C'Dale is aluminum/carbon fork with STI, completely different than the Cross Check (and about $400 more).
I ran a search but it only came up in the cyclocross forum -- just wondering if anyone uses one and how it stacks up?
