Thanks for the reply. This is an 07 so it has the full Ultegra group, which is nice. I'm looking at it today after work. I'm not planning on doing much real long distance right now. There are a great number of dirt roads and rail trails that I can explore better on a cross bike I think than my mt bike. I've always been mroe of a "roadie" any way.
