Seems that 2013 models have largely dropped SRAM, not that they had a big market share to begin with.

I'm trying to compile a list of AL CX bikes that come with SRAM Rival or higher. So far, all I can find is the Giant TCX 1 and Van Dessel offers the Gin and Trombones w/ Rival (Bianchi makes an Apex level). I have to be missing some.

Secondary items on my want list are rim brakes, non-BB30 (would prefer threaded, but that's wishful thinking), non-integrated headset (internal or external cups, but again... wishful thinking these days).

Anyone know of anything else?

Expensive option would be to spec out a Rock Lobster or Stoemper how I want. Would be nice to see if there are any off-the-peg that come close to what I'm looking for.

Thanks.

Before you accuse people of lack of reading comprehension... maybe you need to brush up on it.

Reading comprehension is lacking here. The OP requested rim brakes.
THe OP requested SRAM Rival (or higher) equipped CX bikes.

Nice to haves are things like rim brakes, non-BB30, etc.

Thanks for all the leads, everyone.

I couldn't really find anything that checked enough boxes, so to speak. But I did find a 2012 Stevens Prestige frame on eBay that is my size and realized I can get about 80% to a finished bike with parts I have lying around (an Apex group set from a road bike I am selling, will just part it out and sell the frame). Not really the level of components I was wanting, but this will be my first season racing cross. The parts certainly won't be a limiting factor, as a noob. Bonus is that I get to do a new build, which is always fun.
