specialized sirrus clearances are rubbsih. my sister tried to use hers for cross and a 30c tyre JUST fitted, so they don’t really work offroad. I’d hazard a guess and say a cross frame will be the better rigid all rounder, especially one with dsics
Given the wealth of knowledge on here, thought i might ask some advice as I’m getting a bit stuck…
I got some light MTB stuff (XTR drivetrain) and want build up a frame that can take some serious on-road distance using them and some 700c (perhaps disc) wheels, but also be able to do some trails too – not quite ‘red route’ stuff – so perhaps a short travel front sus…
I’ve been going round in my head over the following
Speshy Sirrus (pro!!!) or Crosstrail
Kenesis frame or similar
…and then thinking of some kind of cyclo cross frame….as the problem with hybrids, is the components are crap unless you go ultra expensive or ‘frame only’ which are rare…
if i have 2 have 2 forks, 1 for road, 1 for light trail, so be it….
