Bianchi Axis vs. Specialized M4 CX(2 posts)

I've got an opportunity to get either the Bianchi Axis or the Specialized M4 CX. I've riddent them both, and like them both. The Specialized seems a little less harsh a ride, but equally as stiff and responsive, but is about $300 more expensive. Any thoughts? Or should I continue to race my Moots YBB mountain bike?

I just got an M4 frame and had it built up. First race is Sunday so I haven't had much riding time on it yet but so far I love it. I haven't ridden the Bianchi so can't compare but I'd be happy to post on Monday about how the bike goes. You're right, it is very stiff, big curved stays and not yet uncomfortable.
