Good cyclo bike for a BIG guy

Evening to all:

I'm new to cyclo cross and looking for a bike for my size. I'm 6'6" 255lbs. and have a 36" inseam. I'm fond of the Giant TCX 0. But I'm open for suggestions. $2200 is my cap. Also what would be a strong wheel set that won't flex when out of the saddle?

Thank you all for your time and I look forward to a response.

Last year I was 278 and racing a Van Dessel Hole Shot. That thing was rock solid! I'm 235 now so I'm even more excited to see how it reacts this coming season!
