And since the stem/handlebar - combo didn't look right, some adjustment was made immediately...

Sure. This is my first cyclocross bike though, so comparison goes more against road bikes...

More professional test ride can be read from road.cc

After few first rides I can only praise this machine :D

The frame is very solid and responsive. It leaves no open questions, if the bike can handle the terrain. It's all about driver now. It feels very agile on the forest paths but still it goes like a train on the tarmac.

If something should be better in my setup, it's the brakes. I think upgrading to hydraulic brakes would do the difference, but these TRP mech brakes are pretty OK also.

This is also my first SRAM road group and I already love it. Red/Force - kombo works like a charm. Like it!

Nice bike. You might get a couple of warm days in August to ride it ... so enjoy.
