Considering a new cyclocross bike for 2012. I have ridden the Blue and like it very much. The Rocky Mountain is harder to find on the east coast but there are dealers. I will be doing a mix of road riding, distance, with a little off road. 6'0, 165lbs, 33 inseam. I am leaning towards the racer end rather than the commuter end of the cyclocross spectrum. Priorities: weight, durability, ride quality. Does any own or have experience that can compare these bikes? Also, is the fork on the Rocky a full carbon fork or an alloy steerer?

Which bike would you rather ride a century on?

Thanks in advance.

DId you already buy a bike? I noticed that you list the nor cross in your signature. If so, you made a good choice.
