Do you mean the Hudson or the Vagabond? The Burley site shows those two as kind of an inbetween style touring bikes, with longer than cross but shorter than touring chainstays (438mm).

I wanted a Oregon made cx bike...
since the whole Stumptown fiasco, Mt Cycles were out of the mix.
So i have been asking the Burley rep when/if they were ever going to come out w/ a Cross bike...(since it seems right up their ally).....maybe was the reply.
So months later I asked again, said i was still looking...sure enough he pulled out a spec
sheet w/ 2 bikes...one an Ultegra 10 and one a 105 9sp...priced @ 2200 and 1500 respectively...(may be a little off on price though) i said "sign me up"...i didn't care i just wanted a frame. So that's the story...a bit rash maybe but excited none the less.
Heard rumors of there being a proto at interbike...still can't find a pic.
sometimes you just have to jump at the opportunity...otherwise you get nothing.
As of Thursday last week they still had no name picked out...:} should be interesting
more info to come...

I was checking out their road bikes at IB but didnt see any crossers in the mix. I would have definitely noticed if there was one. The road frames were nice though, simple, classic steel frames. Hopefully the cross frame is similar to them. Keep us posted.
