    cyclocross frame

    I was thinking about what it would take to build a Cx bike as far as rear tire clearance. bent CS's, wider BB shell, or what? I'm sure that a MTB BB will have incorrect angles for a Cx.

    Or does a standard road BB have enough clearance?

    I know I am getting ahead of myself, but I was just curious and couldn't seem to find any info on it.

    Thanks.

    Look up Richard Sachs' site, where he also has his "formula" in the articles or somewhere.

    I guees it depends- usually when you hear someone say "I want a cross frame" they are looking for something closer to a mtb than a real cyclocross bike. But the answer to your question is yes, a standard BB will work.....for the TRUE cross frame.
