WTB feeler: 55ish CX frame, probably Al or Ti

I have a thought to combine usage of a couple of bikes.

What's out there for 55cm CX frames? Canti bosses. I really want Ti, it'd have to be the right one. Downtube bosses might be a plus because I'm weird.

Cx

I have a stock size 55 cm Moots PyschloX I may be interested in selling.
Frame/Moots Carbon Fork/King HS.
I think it is a 2011 excellent condition.
I would need $2000 net to me. I can send some pics of it if interested.

I do like a deal, but I was curious what you guys would come up with. I would lovelovelove a Moots.

Anything under $1000 I'd give a serious look. Moots is a pretty much a dream bike, but I'm doubting its in the cards right now. I have a couple of frames I could sell to fund...

There's a Litespeed on eBay right now that might fit @ $500. Other than that I haven't seen much Ti under $1000.

Steel is not out of the question, but I want something light and fun to ride. Usable for pavement too.

Lots of responses! Thanks everyone.

Since posting I have learned that people generally size down on cross frames, correct? I like a 56 top tube on a road bike, so a 55 would be a good guess, I think.

Something like a CAAD 9x might be perfect. Brian I love yours, might be too big though. Still pondering this.

I could do a new Habanero, steel Soma fork, CK headset for around $1300. That still a chunk of change considering it looks like a used Moots beauty would be around $2k.

Thanks all.

Search Stanridge, Ritchey SwissCross, Zancanto and Seven in the classifieds, a bunch of them on the block, all sweet.

No kidding. I've already hassled him via text about it.

The success of this thread has me thinking about my own for something larger. The catch for me, I need dt bosses.

I believe the orange Zanc seller is looking into getting bottle bosses mounted.

Thanks for the links.

I've had the Ritchey, 2 Moots, a Spooky, a CAAD X (56), and an IF all offered to me. Oh and an Ira Ryan. I just have figure out what size to go for. All very nice frames in different ways. People don't seem to have dud bikes here.

Is there a reason cross bikes are often steel?
