Funny, I was looking at the Fantom Cross Pro too, but I ended up ordering a 2013 Tricross Comp Disc C2. I didn't get it much below retail, but I didn't haggle too hard either, not sure if it would have helped. Another LBS was gonna give me a great deal on a 2012 Elite Disc, but I just love the way the Comp looks. I think it will be perfect for my 16 mile commute. Hopefully the Axiom Journey Disc rack fits well on it. I'm not sure if I should be sad that I'm getting SRAM instead of the 105's on the 2012, and disc brakes instead of a carbon fork. This is coming from a guy who has always had cheap bikes, so I think anything well impress me at this point.
One nice perk from my LBS, they are swapping the tires for 28mm Marathon Extremes (no charge).
Oh and my hybrid (straight bar) has been making my hands numb too. Hopefully the drop bars on the Tricross will help.
BTW, The reason I chose the Tricross that it seems like the best Cyclocross bike with eyelets for a rack / fenders.
