I checked out a cyclocross race last weekend and really got the bug. Even better my girlfriend had a blast watching and told me I need to get a cyclocross bike! That turned out better than expected for sure. My budget is about 1500, and I don't have the ability to test ride much. I haven't the first clue about how they should handle, which may be a good thing as whatever I get will make me happy.
I plan on racing it, hopefully using it as a winter training bike and I also want it for some grasshopper adventure rides we have out here in sonoma county.
I've come down to three options, please expand if you think I should.
1. '13 Crux Elite disc apex
2. Raleigh RX 2.0 w/105
3. Giant TCX SLR2 w/105
Right now I'm leaning toward the Giant, mainly because of the internal cables, 15mm through axle. It looks cool too. I also think I can find some used lightweight mtb wheels to throw on it later on.
What do you all think, I value your opinion as many of you have a lot more cross experience than I.
