    Help me pick a bike...please!

    Hi all - I'm now in the market for a cyclocross bike. Won't be used for racing. More for light touring, faster commutes, etc.

    My requirements.

    Disc Brakes (winter weather, and on my first new bike I'd like discs)
    Rack & Fender mounts, with plenty of clearance.
    NO carbon in the frame. Carbon Seatposts/forks etc are fine.
    Triple front rings.

    I really, really like my friends Lemond Poprad Disc, which she had converted to a triple 105 crankset. However those are now really, really hard to find.

    Looking @ a few brands I like the look of the Salsa La Cruz - despite it lacking seat stay rack mounts. (p-clips to the rescue).

    Any suggestions?

    I'm currently considering a new CX bike for this winters commuting. The ones I've been considering that have disc brakes are;

    Rocky Mountain Solo CXD

    Motobecane Fantom Outlaw

    Kona ***** Tonk Inc. (Not a cross bike, more in line of a road bike)

    I'm also considering a Specialized Tricross but it one doesn't have disc brakes.
