I was all ready to buy a Giant Cypress SX. It seemed to have the most bang for the buck in the Hybrid category at the $700 price point. Today I took a closer look at the Specialized Crossroads XC Pro, It looks alot like the Giant but with upgraded components-better gears, fork, seat, etc. at $1000. Does anyone have an opinion on whether the extra $300 is worth it? I've read the few posts online about both and they all seem pretty positive except the fairly lame fork on the new Cypress SX.
Thanks in advance.
