components, specs, etc. are standard from mfr. and look like this:
Shimano 105 (FD RD)
wheelset - FSA RD-220 SS Double Butted Spokes 24H F and 28H R
Tires - WTB Cross Wolf Race 700 x 32C
Service includes several first year service packages
Admittedly I'm new to this, but seems like the 'more desireable' set of components from what I've read at a decent overall price.
Would be looking for this to be a all-around bike for commuting, midrange distance rides, mixed surface and I'd like to try CX event or 2. I'm a little leary about that and am hoping ot find some recreational events or clinics.
If anyone has thoughts on $'s / value of this package, thoughts on this bike as a good "all around workhorse" and/or ideas on getting started with actual CX events (Chicago area recreational events, clinics, etc.) I'd appreciate it.
