I was originally interested in the Specialized Tricross Comp. But my LBS told me that the 2007 models are sold out for the year in my size (61cm). And If I really want that bike I would have to find one in stock somewhere. The 2008 is due in July, it is basically the same bike, but brown and black and the price goes up to $1800.
Crosscheck frame + fork, all Shimano Ultegra 10, Avid Shorty 4 brakes, Mavic Open Pro rims, FSA bar/stem/carbon post, Cane Creek S3 headset, Fizik Aliante saddle, Conti Ultra Gatorskin tires.
Well, I was really interested in purchasing the Specialized Tricross Comp, but If it's not going available, I will have to think about getting a Surly.
How does the parts and price sound that I have been quoted above sound ? Or are there better options for me?
Thanks for all of your help.
