I am trying to make the leap into the cyclocross world and have been researching bikes all over the internet. I came across the Gary Fisher Presidio that has really caught my eye. (I found it on the list of 2010 Cross bikes that is posted here. Great job on that post!) Most bikes in this price range are aluminum and I like the idea that it is steel. Whatever I get, I definitely want Sram and this fits the bill there as well. I had been looking at building something up from scratch but this looks like a pretty good bike for what I had planned on spending.
Anyone have any experience with the Gary Fisher Presidio?
BTW, I do plan on racing it. I am a Cat. 3 road guy, working toward Cat. 2 (if that matters) but have never done cross. I will also be doing quite a bit of dirt roads, etc. this fall / winter.
Thanks in advance for your help and thanks again for whoever put together that list of 2010 cyclocross bikes. It put a ton of data together in one spot. That really has helped me see what is out there.
