Masi Speciale CX uno

I am seriously considering purchasing a Masi Speicale CX uno for my commuter and road biking needs. There aren't many reviews of this bike, so I thought I would post here and get some opinions. I realize the CX uno has slightly cheaper components than the CX, but I am thinking that since the uno's frame is the same as the nicer models I would be able to upgrade parts as needed/wanted.

What are people's thoughts on this bike? Is the Masi Speciale CX uno an option or should I just spring for the regular CX?

There's not that much difference in price. I'd get Tiagra shifters over 2300.

If you can find a closeout 2010 I'd snap it up. Masi actually downgraded components a bit in 2011.

I have the 2010 CX and really like it. I have moments of regretting not getting a disc brake bike, but that's my only misgiving on the bike.

I definitely think the Tiagra components are worth the difference in price.
