Any recomendations on cross bikes that won't hurt the wallet to much?
I'm a cross newbie and am looking for a entry level bike equipped with
an entry level price tag.

Thanks,
SK



Try Redline, the Conquest and Conquest Pro are relatively inexpensive.

It looks like they haven't updated their cyclocross bike page.

Heres two:

LeMond Poprad - sweet 853 frame at bargain price - can vouch for it as
I own one. Components are Sora, but 'cross components are consumables
anyway.

Another that caught my eye - Surly Crosscheck - frame about $395 -
I've seen full Ultegra bike in Excel catalog for $1195 or so - you
could put one together cheaper with 105, Sora, or used stuff.

If your looking for a cheap cross bike, I would definitely checkout
the Surly Cross Check :: http://www.surlybikes.com :: You can get it
as a frameset for under $400 as was previously mentioned or as a
complete bike. The beauty of the Cross Check is you can run gears or
singlespeed.

Another cheap alternative would be the On-One Il Pompino ::
http://www.on-one.co.uk/products/ilpompino.shtml :: this bike is an
incredible bike and very versatile.

Either way you can't go wrong with one of these. Surly is a QBP
company so warranty parts and the like are sent out quickly, while
On-One is very in touch with their customers and go out of the way to
make it a pleasant experience.
