    Looking for something to train and commute on.
    these were being picked up for ~$1300 by a few users on here. i think at that price you'd be hard to beat them for bang for your buck. closer to 2K and your other options open up a bit...

    some simple upgrades and you'd have a very decent bike that would be a worthy race steed as well.

    Sweet, thanks for that. I'll shop around on price, seen one for ~$1400 locally. With all the rain we are getting in brisbane I think this bike will get some use.

    It has proven to be an excellent bike for the money. Nikcee is correct, closer to 2k and the option to get much better, but sub $1500 the Giant is hard to beat. (I found that $2k didn't get me much more to be honest, it would have taken $3k+ to get some real CX bling.)

    My priorities changed last year ended up going to Bali instead of buying a CX bike.

    I have saved a little cash and this is what I'm about to pull the trigger on:
