|I think I'm finally about to sell my spare road bike, Raliegh R700, so I'm thinking of branching out and buying a cross bike. I'd like to spend around $1000 or less, I'm about 5'8" and I can get semi good deals on trek, specialized, & giant through my club but I'm open to anything...

|...screaming deal on a 2001 Bianchi Volpe from my LBS. It's a great bike for my price range, which was similar to yours. STEEL frame (my main criteria), decent components (Tiagra/Deore), reasonably light (after swapping out the heavy-dog tires), versatile, and a good fit.
I also looked at Lemond and Surly who also had nice bikes for the money.
Hope that helps!

|Where do you live? I just got back from the Performance bike shop in Torrance California and they have 2 Jamis cyclocross(Nova ?) bikes on sale for $ 650.00. Pretty good deal for a complete new bike.
