    There's the airborne.

    Lots of hype. But I've never ridden it.

    Focus

    If you can get your hands on a focus Mares AX.2 with (disc version) you will be stylin, it's a very nice frame and you should be able to get it for around $1500-$1600.

    Thanks for the recs so far guys! This is just wnat we were looking for. IMO, the Raleigh and the Felt look pretty nice - I may consider selling my Gunnar Crosshairs, just to get on the disc brake bandwagon.

    Just an FYI - I haven't been able to find the Raleigh or Felt anywhere on the east coast. Airborne is OOS until...well now (October).

    I wasn't aware that Jamis is jumping on the disc bandwagon. Have to check that out.

    Felt delay

    Sweet Bikes(Canton, Mi) called Felt for me yesterday about the F65x, seems to be delayed until after the first of the year. Reason given was a hold-up on the wheelset.
