I'm on the hunt for a cyclecross bike for my 17 year old son.. I've looked at the Kona - Jake the Snake and possibly last year's Specialized TriCross. Size is somewhere around 51cm. Hootie's 5'7" and weighs 125 lbs. He rides an 18" mountain bike.

Redline Conquest Pro?

Price points - $1000-1250
Aluminum Frame with 105 or Rival level components. Carbon Fork?

Please give me your thoughts and suggestions to help guide me to a good decision.

JTS looks like its well priced for 105 and carbon fork

If you go lower you generally lose the 105 or the fork

If you go to $1500, there are many choices at regular retail price, may be in your range on sale. Round here lots of summer sales starting now . . .
