    Hybrid Frame

    I would like to build up a new bike for a long term project. I would prefer a steel frame and fork with disc brakes. My road bike size is 54cm C-C. At 73, I want the security of bigger tires. My road bike will only go up to about 25mm tires. I can't seem to locate such frames. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Very difficult to find a bike with a steel fork that also has disc brake compatibility. Not even sure if one exists.

    A frame like this would serve me well. I would have to buy the entire bike however, and add parts when they wear out. Currently the bike it out of stock.

    Well, the Specialized Awol is technically an "adventure touring bike", but it has a steel frame, steel fork, discs front and rear, and can handle tires as wide as 60mm (I think-my 50mm's still have a good bit of space, even with fenders fitted). Not sure if it's available just as a frameset, though...

    Seems like a good deal for a frame and fork.
