    Fuji cyclocross 07 or Scat R660?

    Hello everyone I have a newbie question. I have been riding my marin hybrid for a year now and really enjoy riding. So now I'm in the market for a new bike something faster than my hybrid. I go into performance the other day and I see this cyclocross from fuji w/ ultegra and a durace derailer for about 1000 bucks!! Wow I was looking for a road bike but I liked the brake position of the fuji much better for your posture. It seems the fuji has better components than the scat and is cheaper. What are your thoughts?

    New bike time is always exciting. Congratulations.

    If you want a road bike, to ride on the road, the Scat R660 (Carbon seatstays, Ultegra-mostly) is not a bad deal. However, it sounds like you preferred the position of the Fuji. CX bikes can have a slightly more upright position. While you're at it, there may be an '06 Fuji Cross Comp or Cross Pro at your Performance store. If so, you might be able to get a deal vs. the not-substantially-if-at-all different '07.

    Where and how do you intend to ride? Thinking about racing, either road or CX? Do you ever want to do fire roads? Commuting? More information would be helpful in giving you more specific advice

    EDIT: re-reading your OP. I noticed the deal on the DA/Ultegra Fuji. It would be hard for me to pass up.

    Bianchi?

    I went in to look at a Bianchi today at lunch for the same price roughly I would have a bike that weigh22lbs with tiagra components. Thats what I have now on my hybrid. I ride mostly on paved bike paths. I just thought for the price and the components it seems like the fuji is a steal? I was told the brake levers are diff for cyclocross vs road. I' m not into racing now I just like the idea of going faster. I'm leaning toward the fuji now. I think its just too good of a deal. What do you people think?

    I saw a scattante aluminum w/ carbon fork 105 components all around for nine hundred and I just could not pass up this deal. Its far faster than what I'm using now and since I'm a newbie to cycling I figure the 105 components will do just fine. I guess cyclo cross races will have to wait for now.

    Congrats on your new bike. Enjoy it. 105 will be just fine.

    Don't think that a cross bike means you can't do races, and don't think that less than 105 means you can't do races. Both of these are untrue.
