Build vs Buy
Every time I look at building up a CX bike by buying a frame and pillaging the 105 components off an unused road bike, it ends up looking like I'd be better off just buying a new CX bike altogether
A new frame and fork looks like it would cost me $400-600. Add in a new crank, new brakes and shorty brake arms and we're up to $600-800.
Any thought on the cheapest way to build up a decent, raceable CX (I'm starting with the components off of a Trek 1500).
