Has anyone purchased a Terry Valkyrie cross bike? If so, do like it?
Wow, that is A LOT of money for not much bike, but that's what I find with all Terry bikes. Clever marketing to women. You can get way more bicycle for much less money from other manufacturers. Also, unless you are really small the 26" wheels are a severe disadvantage on a cross bike, larger wheels ride smoother and you'll have a much larger selection of tires available.
There's a women's only cross sub-forum at Team Estrogen - you should be able to get good fitting advice there.
