Between the Escape2, 1 and 0, the Escape 1 is the best value in my opinion. You can normally find them for under $500. I got my 2012 Escape1 last fall for $450.
I did look at the Escape0, but for $790 retail I expected more. 9speed SRAM x5, CF fork and lighter wheels are the upgrades over the Escape1, but thats a pretty big price difference.
If you are considering the Escape0, atleast wait till August when they introduce the 2013 models. Hopefully they will have SRAM x7 and a better color than white.
