    Ridley Crosswind v Bianchi Axis

    Two good options, but it's time to make a choice. Input is welcome:

    Ridley Crosswind - $1100
    2006 Al frame and fork, lightly used
    105 components
    will use my own Mavic Ksyrium wheelset
    available locally

    Bianchi Axis - $1400 + duty
    2008 Al frame, Carbon fork
    Tiagra/LX components
    comes with wheels, though I'll probably use the Ksyriums
    available on an upcoming trip to the US

    Opinions on either?

    I looked at the Axis when I was shopping earlier this year and felt that it was expensive for what it came with.

    If the Ridley is actually lightly used, I'd go with that. Except, does it come with wheels or no? Having a spare wheelset could be nice.

    It doesn't come with a wheelset, though I could get one for another $500 or so.

    I am not planning on selling my current bike (Surly Cross Check), which has its own wheelset, and could be a spare set for the new bike.
