    Looking to buy intro Cyclocross: Diamondback steilacoom vs. Trek Crossrip


    I am gearing up to purchase my first nice bike. I have decided to buy a cyclocross as an all around-bike, that will mostly be used in the city or on paved paths. I am looking to spend around 1000 and have narrowed it down based on price and what is available at my LBS. I am strongly considering the Diamondback Steilacoom and the Trek Crossrip. I was wondering what peoples opinions are on these two models. I am also open to other suggestions, but will likely be purchasing one of these two.

    Those two bikes are very closely matched in specs, with a slight edge going to the DB (IMO).

    I'd first consider fit, ride and handling, and the shop you like best. All else being equal, price/ color.

    That said, there are a number of other offerings from others, but in this price range I doubt you'll find a noticeably 'better' choice.
