Depending on where you live having canti bosses brazed on might not be that expensive. I paid 15$ cdn each for mine and then another 60$ for a powdercoat. The problem you might have in using a modern road frame is that the clearance in the rear stays might be too tight to allow for cantis or v-brakes. This would also be a problem if you used an adapter, I think. I would'nt worry about the bottom bracket height. I think this issue tends to be overstated esp. as you will be using larger tires. That said, make sure your frame can clear the kind of tires you want to run.
