Rival CX Bike

I'm looking for a Rival equipped CX bike. Any out there? I really want to avoid Tiagra/105.

Specialized Tricross Expert Double comes with Rival, although for less money you can get a Van Dessel Hole Shot with a SRAM Force build.

GT GTR Type CX is probably the least expensive. Name rolls right off the tongue, too.

I feel like I saw a Mongoose with Rival at Performance too, but I might be on drugs.

There is a Mongoose with Rival at Performance. It's only $1200.

But the Tiagra version is $640, so that's a pretty big price difference....

You could try buying a nice frame from Redline/Ridley/Alan etc and building it up, but it would take some smart shopping.

Gary Fisher Presidio. Pretty sweet ride. I have one and love it. I might actually switch to Campy next year just to try it. But the frame rides like butter.

2010 Giant TCX 1. About $1550 msrp. I've got the group off that bike if you already have a frame. PM me
