REI is blowing out their Novara branded CX bike for $599. Retail was $1600. I picked up the last 56cm in the SF Bay Area last night. It's a 2008 model and they've dropped the cross line from their 2009 catalog.
It's got a nice build spec on it - nothing fancy, just stuff that works: 105 9-spd shifters, Ultegra RD, Tiagra FD, FSA SL-K carbon cross crank (46/36), SRAM 12-26 cassette, Ritchey wheelset/seatpost/stem/bars, Fizik Aliante Sport saddle, Avid Shorty 4 brakes, AN6 aluminum frame with carbon fork/seat stays/chain stays. I threw a set of SPD-540 pedals on, hung it on the scale, and it came in at just over 21 lbs.
Will make a great back-up cross bike/winter trainer/commuter. For $600, it was a no brainer for me.
