Cyclocross Bike Advice

Hi,

I am sure you all get this question a lot but i am trying to get into biking, just moved to a new city and don't know anyone around here to ask about bikes. Trust me, i wouldn't be asking you all unless i really had nowhere else to turn. Is this a good deal?

I am looking for an entry level cross bike and debating between something like this vs getting a real cheapo to make sure i am into the sport first. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry, for some reason link didn't go through. Posted on general forum and got the answers i needed. Going to pass on it as it was only a small discount off of what he bought it for and the high price was due to upgraded deraillers to dura ace but not the shifters so it was sort of worthless. Still continuing the hunt for my first cross bike. Thanks for the replies even though I messed up the link! Was looking for a delete button on the forum but there doesn't appear to be one!
