    LT Bikes (like the one I posted a picture of) respond very quickly to emails and are happy to sell to individuals. Their English is very good, which is one of the reasons I’m erring towards them over Hong Fu for example.

    I’ve been thinking about swaping my old road-geo Roadrat frame and fork for one of these.

    However, I’ve searched a few times over the last few months for the spec I want without success.

    Anybody seen a CX disc frame/fork combo with mudguard mounts and a 68mm English threaded BB? Or am I going to have to go with a pressfit BB and an adaptor?

    search for fr-602 on ebay. I bought one a few months ago and exactly what you asked for. couldn’t be happier with mine

    let me know if you have any questions.

    fr-602

    Looks good, but the headtube and seattube angles are pretty slack (71.5° and 72°).

    Is that typical for a CX bike; are they all going to be like that (that’s slacker than even my Roadrat I think)?

    Fair enough.

    A little bit of google-fu does indeed tell me 71-72° headangle is the norm for CX…except for On One’s Dirty Disco which comes in at 73° headtube angle and 74° seattube angle in the XL size I want. And a BSA BB. But no mudguard mounts.

    Try talking to them and see what they say….
    Most will sell individual items.

    Cool. I’ll look into this once I’m considering new frames again.

    Spot of bike envy here. Nice! 🙂

    Use aliexpress rather than alibaba – aliexpress is more targeted at non-business purchasing and typically you’ll find the option for buying single frames, etc.

    These are the guys I bought from:

    Thanks clubber handy info …. Bb30 as I want to singlespeed it 🙂

    Problem solver do an eccentric bb that fits bb30 ..

    Right. I’d ask miracle if they do one with bb30 though recently bb86 seems more common (and works well for me)

    CXSS – have to say that I’ve never really fancied that despite liking my ss mtb. For me one of the great things about cx bikes is how versatile they are. I wouldn’t fancy changing that by ssing one but I guess it depends what you use it for and is no doubt a while different topic…

    Thanks … I do a fair bit of ss’ing but still love my gears so it is as you say versatile and I have option of running it geared too if needed 🙂

    So tempted to look for a disc road frame and drop the new disc ultegra kit onto it.

    It’s a continental one, comes with a tube and Tyre levers, I think CRC do them.
