    what cross bikes come with campy components?

    now that my road bike is complete, i am going to start saving for a nice cross bike (my franken-cross bike is OK, but the DT shifters are killing me).

    I want to finally have a bike with campy stuff, anything reasonably priced come with campy?

    People's definition of "reasonably" may vary. Please could you be more specific?

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    You're going to have to build it yourself for that money. Recommend you scout out places selling Mirage and Veloce components. If you can get a deal on a decent frame, then you are halfway there. I recently saw a Xenon/Mirage group for under $300. Wiggle has Campagnolo compatible wheels from about $130. Go for it if you can. Campagnolo parts are great for cross because they are tough and can be rebuilt when you break them.
