What shoota said.
If I just needed a front wheel I would take a good look at a Hunt wheel. But for a wheelset - I prefer a quality rear hub and would look elsewhere (maybe that's just me).

I would say of the three bikes on your list, the Niner is the least compliant if you are looking at the aluminum model. The carbon and steel frames are a different story however.

Cyclocross frame sizes are fairly close to road frames (but really depends on the geo). Going from 58/60 down to a 54 is a big jump though.

I'm 5' 11" with long legs and a shorter reach and a size 58 bike would be way to big for me. Most 56cm frames fit me with a slightly shorter stem.
