    Looking for SSCX Disc Frame Suggestions

    I want to build up a SSCX Disc bike for cross season. Unfortunately, the two leading candidates are out of the running. The latest on the Traitor Crusade is that it will not be available until possibly October, and the On-One Dirty Disco is no longer listed on the US distributor's website.

    I am set on getting a disc bike which drastically narrows the field. The only other candidate I can find is the Civilian Le Roi Le Veut D'Lux which looks like a nice fit albeit quite heavy given it has a carbon fork and is approximately the same weight as the steel fork Traitor.

    Any other suggestions?

    I'd actually consider custom but for the fact that I want to have the bike built up and shaken down by the end of the month.

    Thanks in advance...

    Damn, they snaked my paint design. Also, not to take away from the marketing effort, but that Fanatic 'CX2' is also marketed direct from China and can be ordered from Dengfu with custom paint for nearly half the price.

    Genesis Bikes - Day 01 Discs?
    Other non-disc options at sscx.me

    But any disc frame should do if you looked at the On-One DD (I've built that one as a SS CX bike)

    I haven't seen a way to get the Genesis as a frame but I will look again.

    As fr your Dirty Disco - I love how it looks. My big challenge with a vertical drop-out bike is that I want to use the White Industries Double Double cranks so I can run a dingle speed. That would require a square taper eccentric bottom bracket which as far as I can tell does not exist...

    Then do an eccentric hub instead, like the WI.

    +1 for the WI Eccentric ENO hub, then you can use practically any frame you want. I rode one SSCX for two seasons and 30 races. I found the trick to get good chain tension was a little light pressure from a 19mm cone wrench to rotate the wheel back/forward, then tighten the 6mm bolts in a couple stages, and you're good to go.

    Hmmmm......mine may be a hair too big. It's a 56 cm top tube. It's currently in the jig though so won't be complete for another 2 weeks at least (including powdercoat). True Temper S3 head tube, seat tube, seat stays, chain stays and KVA stainless top and down tube. Paragon Rockers. All silver fillet brazed. Internal rear routing. No braze-ons at all. Fork will be Wound Up with anodized black parts. Pure SS CX race bike.

    If you are in any way, shape or form interested just give me a shout. It was to be my display and race bike but I can always make another for myself.

    Read the OP.

    It's not going to be available until at least October.

    Just an FYI....pre-powder, this frame weighed in at 1636g. Could have been lighter had I not went with internal routing.
