    Down to two bikes. Which would you choose? ROSE VS NORCO

    Okay so I have been looking to get a cyclocross bike and I think I have rounded it down to two.

    My selections are the:

    Norco Threshold A1
    Norco Threshold A1 2014 Cyclocross Bike | Evans Cycles

    Or the:

    Rose Pro DX Cross D2
    ROSE PRO DX CROSS-2000 2014 offers at the cycling shop Rose Bikes UK

    I would be interested to hear what people think.

    I ordered a 2013 Ridley X-ride from Competitive Cyclist and I love it. Look into it. Easy to assemble and packaged great.

    Looked at the ridley but dont think its for me. Plus sizing (and delivery) is an issue at the moment.

    Man I am all the way in the middle east with onl one bike shop in town that stocks zero cross bikes. Competitive Cyclist customer service was amazing and the thing was shipped in three different boxes from Utah to Saudi Arabia and didn't have one scratch. Their delivery was amazing and will gladly order from them again. They offer other brands than Ridley.

    Norco looks like the better choice just based on the frame & fork construction. If you get a chance to swing a leg over a Ridley you will see why people love them (aggressive & fast). Don't ever worry about how a company chooses to put a size on a bike, get what fits you.

    The Norco looks better to me. Price is better and component set basically equivalent except for the brakes which I think are better on the Norco. I love the Hayes CX-5 brakes on my Fuji. The only thing I would not be thrilled about on the Norco would be the hubs, but that is a personal preference...
