    F65x vs CAADX disc vs CRUX disc?

    I cant tell from the geometry charts how different the bikes are. Does anyone have any first hand experience with them?
    If I get the CAADX the ultegra will be switched to Force.
    Should I think about upgrading brakes to BB7s? I don't know what will be involved in upgrading to hydro brakes when they are available maybe the rotors will have to be replaced at that point anyway?
    I also may consider the CRUX disc, its about the same price and weighs less. I dont really like the looks of it but if it rides better than that is enough for me.

    It's more than just numbers.
    All bikes fit differently....and most can be made to fit you with stem/seatpost changes. But sometimes...things just don't work.
    Your best bet is to at least sit on them...and try them if you can.
    As far as upgrading your brakes....BB5 to BB7 is a miniscule change. Changing to hydros...if they ever happen...requires new shifters and brake system. I wouldn't worry about any of that until you first...get a bike...and then ride it
