I like how manufacturers are making more and more bright colored cross bikes.

It's like:

How clean can we make it look when it's clean and how dirty can we make your bike look when it's dirty.

It's a hot bike but I agree, the price seems a tad steep.

Ultra high end steel tubing and full carbon forks don't come cheap. The pricing seems comparable to other similar products.

Wow that's a nice looking frameset!

Would I get flak if I said that I would instinctively want to put a anodized purple wheelset and nothreadset on it?

Not from me. Bring on the aftermarket ano'd parts for sure. Hell, put on purple cranks too.

See the last paragraph on All-City's site. You know, the one where it says it has fender mounts.
