It's relative. I'm in a similar situation to you right now; I was just sized up and spent a few hours in a very friendly and helpful LBS - my budget is even the same as yours, although I found CC to...

Actually, I think the OCR3 shipped with Sora components. I still ride an '06 OCR1, mostly 105. I'm starting to get that bubbly paint corrosion on it. Like roadwarrior said, it's a relaxed geometry...

I've had security issues with PricePoint. Their customer service wasn't helpful at all in getting it resolved. I'll buy elsewhere if the price difference isn't too great, but sometimes they have...
