Ritchey Cross Bike

Does anyone have experience with Ritchey's cross frame? I think I may be able to get one at a seriously discounted price. If not the choice is between a Cannondale and a K2, both without disc brakes, sound off folks I've got no real clue with cyclocross frames

the ritchey swiss cross is reputed to be one of the best steel cross frames around. designed by tom himself, with input from frischy. i'd take it over a 'dale in a minute if the fit was right.
when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

Not familiar with the SwissX frameworks, I love his frame building though,
Very reactive\tensile feel.
I ride an inclined toptube Ritchey mtb every day-everywhere.
I will purchase another frameworks from him soon hopefully, the Niti.
Also Ritchey makes just about everything you need for a bike except suspension forks.
Different quality levels comp,wcs,severe condition.
They don't put bikes together or have kits.
