    I'm looking for a CX frame or a road frame that is disc brake compatible. I really like disc brakes coming from a moto racing and MTB back ground. I may use an On One Dirty Disco or I may use a Mountain Cycle Stumptown CX frame. I may use something else, it just depends on what I find. Although, my options here are pretty limited. I'm going to build up a set of wheels with, of course disc hubs, and H Son Plus road rims. It's going to be a SS with a tensioner. I would prefer no tensioner, but with the rear disc brakes, my options are pretty limited. I may be able to use a WI ENO hub with their adjustable brake adapter. That won't work on the Dirty Disco, because the rear is a post mount. It may not work on the MC Stumptown, because of clearance issues with the adapter and the frame. I also have chainline to worry about. Converting a cassette hub to SS means I can adjust the chainline to wherever I want it. And, of course, I'm going to use a bullhorn bar. I really like the look of them. I don't don't like the look of road drops. And, I won't be racing, so I just don't see the need for being in the drops. Depending on which bars I use, I may put the brakes on the sides of the stem or I may put them on the end of the bars. I'm not sure about a crankset. I don't know if I should use a MTB or road set. I think that's about it.

    So, any opinions would be appreciated. Because of compatibility issues, I can't have everything that I want in this build, something has to give. I guess if I had endless funds I could do it. What gives depends on which frame I decide to use. I've kinda gotten a little frustrated with that and at times I have thought about forgetting about this project. But, I think I'm going to forge ahead and see what happens. I have not bought any parts for this project, but I have some parts that I can use.

    Edit: I believe both these frames have a 135mm rear spacing and a 68mm BB shell.

    I guess it's an EBB. Looks nice, I'd have to add a carbon fork.

    Nice! I've seen those and I like them. I wonder if a set of Hayes brakes would bolt onto the top bar? The bar might be to thick, I'm not sure.

    I did purchase a Bianchi Roger the other day. I got it home, cleaned it up and found a crack in the frame. The guy is going to take it back and give me my money back. So, I am again in the market for a bike. I think I might just buy an Asian carbon disc road frame and fork and go from there.

    Just when I thought I had seen the most ridiculous, inane, brainless topic on RBR, someone goes and posts a new winner...

    There are people who have tastes other then yours. If you don't like the subject then don't read it. BTW, I find your saying by Christine, in your sig very hypocritical and I just unfriended you. Have a nice night!

    I really like all kinds of inane things. But I can't imagine ever starting a topic for posting pictures of them.

    So, what you're saying is that you lack imagination. Open your mind and take a walk on the wild side! I promise it won't hurt and you may see something you like.

    That's just it. I have imagination. I don't need to beg people to post pictures of a g****mn handlebar to decide what *I* want for my bike.

    Wow, and you own a bike shop? Is this how you treat your customers? Being a cussing troll? Dude, you have some issues, if all you have to do is give me a hard time about what I post. I'm done with your crap!

    Nice bars and bike. It doesn't look like a typical fixie.

    Sweet build! Gave me some ideas for an older 9 speed road bike hanging in the garage. BTW, another 47 year old appreciating the ban on skinny jeans!
