I haven't ridden the BMC but I have heard that they are pretty hefty, built like a mountian bike. Also has a bit lower head tube angle than most cross bikes.

I have a Ridley Supercross, about the same price and a very light frame with a very light fork. 18 lbs built with Campy Chorus. It is a very fast and responsive frame, with great energy transfer. I use the Supercross for all of my riding and racing (road and cyclocross).

I think if you are planning on doing a lot of off road riding, the BMC would be a good bike. But for road riding and cyclocross racing I highly recommend the Ridley Supercross.

Pass on the BMC Cross Machine and Get a Ridley X-Fire frameset instead (assuming it fits you).

It's so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.
