wanting to buy/put together a cx bike for mucking about on and probably racing/wobblingabout next winter.
Not a big budget, so nice new stuff not really an option. Doesn't appear to be a lot of second hand good uns' around (i guess buy it and ride it once types don't buy them).
That leaves getting a frame and building with second hand bits / old stuff in shed.
Any recommendations? Can a cross check be built light enough to race? Do you go down a size from road bike?
