I'm driving myself (and I'm sure you folks) crazy. So, my LBS is no longer carrying Ridley. Their purchase minimums were too high so they had to drop them. Because of this they are blowing out everything they have left. Right now they have an X-Fire with SRAM Force (I think, gotta check) on clearance for $1050.00. I'm sure I can get that to be a crisp stack of 10 Hundreds with little effort. I've never ridden Cross but I'd give it a shot. The bike would mainly be doing Roadie duty since I have a mountain bike as well. I know I'd have to change out my tires, which isn't a bike deal but are there any other things to consider if I want to use a Cross on the Road?
