    Blue CX 5.5 - thoughts?

    Greetings,

    New to this forum, and the world of cross. I'm looking at getting a cross bike, to use in the city and to race come next fall. Anyone know anything about the Blue CX 5.5? Opinions, thoughts?

    As well, I'm a bigger rider (6'1", 210). What wheelset would you recommend?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    On the wheels I would just go with the standard set of Mavic Open Pro's ultegra hub 32 spoke. I am 6'2" and 185lb and I trash my wheels racing and so far they are still true. Even have a back up set of the same set up for my pit bike.
