    So whenever a great deal comes along on a really nice bike, I have to buy it.
    Fortunately for my bank account, this doesn't happen all that often.

    Well, if you already have a bunch of wheels that you will be swapping then the rim brake model the way to go. That was my reason for choosing the TCX, although I think mine is a 2012 model.

    Personally, I love the look of the classic XA stem on my old steel bike, it is not stiff.
