I went in to see Chris at Edisons a few weeks back - he had that quiet confidence in his own work that is completely contagious and makes you want to order about a hundred bikes just for the pleasure of watching him build them.
I used to own an Edison Columbus SL cross frame (a cast-off from former national junior champ Lee Fereday, apparently), very nicely built  but a bit restricted on mud clearance around the fork crown; improved further still thanks to an excellent Dave Yates respray. Sold it due to a funds shortage a few years ago, otherwise I'd probably still be using it now albeit with a new fork.
 "Proper" CX design too - both gear cables routed over the top tube and all that!
