    Best Alum Disc frame

    What are the best aluminum disc brake road bikes that can have a racier geometry?
    CAAD12 (2019)? Mason Definition? Cinelli Semper? Trek Emonda ALR? Speciallized Allez? Low (cool but pricy)? What else?

    Well, I've had no experience with these bikes, but have great respect for Cinelli over the years. They're still making a frame they introduced in the late '70s, an authentic classic. Their designs and quality control put Italians' love of cycling into every bike.

    Fenders would be the kicker. Fenders make the bike all purpose, recreational as well as commuting and running errands, multi-day touring, winter riding. You also won't spray road grime on the rider in your draft on group rides, and he'll really appreciate your consideration.

    Not super-racey geo, but the Bowman Pilgrims Disc could be worth a look.

    I'm thinking of getting a Kinesis Athein Evo Frame Set; (Non Disc) but they do a disc version that's cheaper than the "non disc version"
    Beautiful British made frames.
