I really wanna test-ride some cyclocross bikes, or at least some road bikes that have similar geometries. I'm in the Sacramento area, and all the bike shops here tell me I have to go to the Bay area for any hope of finding CX bikes on the floor . . . anyone know of any good shops (around SF)?

are interested in? if so check the manufacturers sites for dealer lists and specifically dealers in the bay area. Give um a call first to see if they do have the model and size either on the floor or boxed so you dont waist your time driving in.

Do you have last month's issue of Bicycling?
There is an article about a gentleman in the Bay area who commutes to work on an Axis, I believe he works at the Yosemite Fund, or something like that. I am certain he would answer any questions you might have on the Axis. Picture of the fellow on the website (just checked).
Seeing that article sealed the deal for my CX!

CityCycle and American Cyclerly in S.F. one of the posters here works at one of these shops.
Fog City Cycles, Pacific Bicycle, Start to Finish to name a few

American and City are both big and cool.

Kelly (Mfr) is in Berkeley or Oakland
SoulCraft (Mfr) is in Petaluma ask for Sean.
but avoid all these choices and just buy a Bianchi, I think these posters get paid commission
