New to cyclocross.. intend on using the bike for some winter riding as well if the temperature is somewhat civilized for a Winnipeg Winter...

Considering a crossbow or crosswind instead of the Redline...

Is the $300 more worth it for the xwind (I take it the Python fork is excellent?)

Also regarding sizing... I ride a 59.5 Paris Carbon..

Ridley 56 c-c is 60 to the top, 58 is 62 to the top... I take it I would go as small as possible?? ( the 56)

Thanks in advance
Chris

You definitely don't need to size down your cross bike.

You don't want to use a weird size stem and get a weird handling bike.

If your top tube on your current bike is 59cm, you will want the larger Ridley, which is I believe 58.5cm. You'll probably want the same size stem as you have as well, with your bars a little higher; maybe one size smaller.
