My beloved Specialized Hardrock was ripped off Sunday afternoon and I need a replacement, so I'm once again considering adding a cross bike to my now empty stable.
The last time I was considering a CX bike I basically fell in love with the Lemond Poprad Disc, but the one retailer I could find locally who could get them wouldn't budge from $1899 Canadian and since I only had $1700 I ended up buying a HDTV instead. Probably a good choice, as no one has attempted to steal my TV yet.
I stopped into my local local LBS which I regularly frequent for service and accessories, told them about what happened, what I was considering, and they suggested I opt for an Opus Sentiero. This particular store sells Specialized, Norco, Santa Cruz, and Opus. The Sentiero came up after I mentioned not particularly liking the Tricross, and how fond of the Poprad I had been.
Anyway, is anyone familiar with this bike? They didn't have any in stock and I don't expect to actually see one unless I order it myself since most LBS' around here don't seem to stock CX bikes at all. Also, if anyone can give me an idea of how much these things are selling for I'd appreciate it.
