    Pros: no frame is more flexible, easy to buy, can be used for anything, durable as hell

    Cons: heavy steel weight and hard to find used

    I think I'm convinced. Know anybody that wants to buy a B.Pista?

    Buy one. I just finished a custom built cross check (my first) and absolutely love the results. Mine is more of a commuter/hybrid, but with a few tweaks it can be a full on CX bike. the ride is great compared to the aluminum framed CX bike I sold to fund the cross check build. If you look around, I doubt you'll find anyone who is dissatisfied with their cross check. Plus the folks at Surly are fantastic.

    don't forget to use FRAMESAVER! before you build. Just some advice.
