Here's my new bike. I've had it for about a couple of weeks. I really enjoy the ride. I can't wait to get it hooked up to commute to work.

Sweet! (Nitpicking: next time take the pic from the drive side so that we can bask in the glory of the chosen drivetrain Wink )
The cable routing is good, some cyclocross bikes still route the front dérailleur cable under the bottom bracket. I'd probably exchange the cantis for mini v-brakes as I am allergic to the former, but that is my personal preference.

Definitely a nice bike. My favorite feature is the extra water bottle holder. Sucks when one runs out of water! Hydration back packs to me are constricting to the flow of air. That's just me though.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Well, hydration backpacks are actually beneficial to the air flow, they give the rider a more water drop like profile. Thus, they are outlawed (as far as I know).
During a cyclocross race you would not want any bottle holders in your frame. They make it difficult to carry the bike.
