    I just bought their Ridley X-Fire Ultegra Disc at 1/2 off ($1950). Great Frame, Wheels, components... I Love it! I plan on using it for CX and Gravel Grinders...

    BTW - the A23 rims on this convert to tubeless fairly easily with 21mm Velotape with valve kit.

    I bought a Boardman CXR 9.0 at Competitive Cyclist. Yesterday, I rode it up to the Olympic ski jump road in Park City twice to get used to climbing. The bike feels amazing stable when I stand to climb. The Continental x-king 35cm tires feel slow on the road and good on the dirt bike path. Once the Spring weather settles I will ride it up Big Mountain Pass (Little Immigration Canyon).

    The Boardman looks like the perfect bike for mixed use. It even has fender and rack mounts for commuting. With a bivy of different tires you could do everything from a Road Century to Twisty Singletrack with it.

    BTW - if you haven't seen this already checkout this thread. Shows how much fun you can have on your CX bike on the trails

    Also this is a fun video of Chris Akrigg showing amazing offroad skills on his cross bike.

    Looks like a nice solid bike. Disc is definitely the way to go now. I may trade in my Cross Check for a Warbird or some other disc frameset this year.
