cross frame for girlfriendgoathead
Apr 22, 2001 9:13 PM
I'm looking for a cheap clunker cross frame to build up for my girlfriend. price range is around $130. I was thinking that someone might have an old road frame with welded brake bosses that would accept 30c tires. I (or she) would also be interested in a complete or nearly complete cx bike around $325. I don't know if this is doable but it is worth a try.
thanks, will

I would say that your best bet is to get a used hybrid frame. They are perfect for an inexpensive cross bike. They have a good deal of clearence, canti bosses, and are setup for a tripple chainring. All you have to do once you get the bike is convert the handlebars to road style. Good luck!
