Great bike, I use it for almost everything. Wheels have held up amazing under my cylesdale frame. The triple comes in handy when i get lazy.

Date Reviewed: November 9, 2001

Strengths:    Strong, light frame
Good drivetrain
Light aluminum fork
Great wheelset
Time pedals
RaceFace cranks

Weaknesses:    Poor cable routing
Minimal tire clearance at bb
Harsh aluminum fork

Bottom Line:   
I really like this bike so far. Kind of expensive but all of the parts are decent - nothing really needs to be upgraded unless it breaks. I had the shop swap the bars for wider ones...I just hate narrow bars. The wheels have stayed true under the enormous pressure of my unyielding buttocks, the frame is very well made (sweet paint job too), and the drivetrain is solid if not terribly refined. The ride is like you'd expect - firm and fast. Awesome on roads of all kinds and smooth singletrack but bone-jarring on anything rougher (still fun though). Just one complaint...the cable routing is in the exact wrong position for cyclocross. For some reason Rocky chose to put the rear brake cable stop in the very place your shoulder rests when carrying the bike...this is almost unforgiveable for a cyclocross bike. You'll just have to learn to carry it differently.
