Best shops selling cyclocross bikes in Austin?

Against my better judgment, I am planning to do some cyclocross this winter. Anyone know of some good bike stores that carry cross bikes in Austin? Most places don't seem to have too many. I am just looking for a middle of the road type bike like maybe the Kona JTS, and would really rather have the chance to ride the thing rather than do the internet thing or build from scratch. Thanks...

Try Ozone on Guadalupe. They carry Kona and I've seen JTS's there.

Cool, thanks. I think the Surly is out due to the bar-end shifters. I will give Ozone a try.

Yeah. I don't know why those bar-end shifters are so popular. I don't like 'em either.
Good luck finding a bike.

A friend of mine got a Soma Double Cross built up at the Peddler Bike Shop on North Loop. The owner worked on my MTB back when he was at Cothron's and is a really nice guy.
