A frame a frame my kingdom for a frame

So the hunt is on for my new CX frame. I've ridden for the past few season on a too small for me orbea and I'm sucking it up  getting something that fits well and help me improve my handling.

The local shop carries Redline, Trek/GF and Scott.  


Anyone have an idea, Bueller?

I think I made need to go  sniff the new griffos or fangos in the basement.


Maybe I need to buy a new frame.

Anyone have a training plan?

Maybe I need to get serious about buying my tubular wheels.



How do I stop the shakes or…

Rival vs Apex

What are the main differences between these two?  I am looking at 2 bikes and one has the Apex group and one has the Rival and both are within 50 bucks of each other.   Would I notice the difference between the two groups?
