- What CX/touring disc frame?
Lots of choice here… it would be worth looking at the Cotic, Genesis and Surly ranges for starters.
I’ve had a Cotic Escapade and, latterly, a Surly Ogre. The former is designed around drops and the latter for flats; I’ve built them up happily with both sets of bar configurations.
In general, I’ve found the Cotics to be lighter and sprightlier to ride, but with fewer braze-ons.Posted 1 year agomcj78Member
I reckon one of these would be perfecto – there’s a big thread on here somewhere full of various builds, i’ve got the previous incarnation & it’s great – have run it with 25-35c tyres but there’s probably room for 40c if that’s your bag, really nice to ride – would have another in a heartbeat

I’m looking for a CX/touring/gravel frame.
Requirements are disc mounts, drop bar compatible and threaded BB. Mudguard and rack mounts would be advantageous. Not bothered about frame material. Will be using it for commuting/touring/gravel tracks.
Just looking for the frame as I have a fork.
Any ideas?Posted 1 year agocrashtestmonkeyMember
if you’re looking towards Tripster end of the market, what about a half-priced Niner RLT?Posted 1 year agoHoratioHufnagelMember
Been very impressed with my gf’s Ridgeback tourer. Comfy and springy unloaded, but still stiff enough with heavy panniers.Posted 1 year agogenubahMember

Is your fork straight or tapered? Because this might narrow down your choices…
Also, what is the budget? Would you be happy with a pre-owned Boardman CX (frame-only L sizes seem to pop up on ebay all the time) or with a brand new pedigreed Ti (Lynskey CooperCX/Urbanskey, Enigma/Sabbath/Qoroz etc.)?
