I'm looking for a decent CX bike as a racer/spare road bike in the $1,000 range. My LBS recommended these three, so I will probably test ride them all at some point and, as is often pontificated on BF, I know fit and what feels best should rule the day. I'm looking for any and all feedback on these three offerings by Redline, Masi and Surly, respectively, plus any others that repliers might be aware of in this price range. I've also noticed that the Kona Jake the Snake and Jamis Nova Pro look good, but I'm not sure if they're in this price range. Thanks.

MC.
