Going to be doing a lot of 'cross racing this season, so I want a good solid bike for it. I have a carbon road bike, so I don't need this to be road oriented. I basically want a fast, light enough, race bike.
I have a Specialized, like it.
Don't really want a Trek.
Surly is fine.
Bar end shifters/tiagra components
Basically just by reading what I wrote here I have eliminated the Crosscheck.
Anyway, I don't like Trek much, but I feel that since it is equipped very similarly to the Tricross but less money I should go for that.
I kind of answered my own questions here, but still want opinions.
So there it is - opinions?
*I work in a shop, so I get these bikes for a lot less - I listed retail prices just to give an idea
