    Another select my bike thread

    Sorry for the lame thread but I don't know where else to ask.

    I am thinking of trading in or selling my kona for a cross bike.

    The LBS has (what I think is) an Axis in a real sexy Grey color scheme and sram rival for around $1400.
    The cross concept is seriously nice but I can't see paying that much for upgrading to carbon fiber frame and ultegra components.
    Only other option I have scoped is a motobecane from BD which is about the middle of the road pricewise.

    I would really like to keep it around $1500, what other cross bikes should I be looking at? Is the sram hard to get used to and switch back and forth from a shimano equipped ride?
