Thinking of building up a cross bike...
Using parts from a previous roadbike build.
So, what are the main concerns when building up a CX bike?
Can I use my old 105 hub/ma-3 rim wheelset? If so, what is the largest tire I can probably fit on it?
Are road or mountain cranks reccomended?
road or mtn deraileurs, etc?
I know lots of stupid newb questions, but I am trying to ballpark what something like this would cost.
