I'm sure many of you saw my post in the road cycling section and for the ones who didn't just look under "crashed on my face". I am here today looking for some advice on a cross country racing rig. I weigh 140lbs and am looking to build something from scratch, unless I can find a really good pre- built. It needs to be nice but not crazy, good bang for the buck. I consider a good bang for the buck road bike to be Sram Rival with Dura ace crank and maybe a Cannondale Six13 frame, just to give you an idea of what I have in mind.
Throw me your suggestions.
