cx frameset help
Going to have a sora groupset lying around shortly after am upgrade on my road bike.
I would really like a cheap cx frame set to throw it on along with the old road wheels to make a winter road bike for thrashing along the country farm roads on. Would like to run cx tyres so I don’t need to worry if the local farmers have been drag racing their tractors on the roads.
So, what should I buy??Posted 6 years ago
Budget? discs or calipers?Posted 6 years ago
Was hoping to get change from £300 but I don’t know if I’m kidding myself on. Sort of hoped there would be a geared cx version of the on one inbred.
Calipers, and sort of hoping they would work with the sora levers, but again, I might be kidding myself! !Posted 6 years ago
Have a look on the ribble website they have some bargain framesPosted 6 years ago
If it’s new sora then they work ok with discs and calipers.
i’d go for a used frameset rather than looking at new – loads of caliper frames going now that riders are upgrading to discs.Posted 6 years ago
Paul Milne cycles on eBay have loads of race frames in that range if that’s what you are after. Formed at that price are very good.Posted 6 years ago

Kaffenback from Planet X?Posted 6 years ago
If you’re after large you can get a fully built one for less than your £300 (mine in the classifieds) and put the sora group set on
Just seen this Citic X on the classifieds. Any good?
