MTB frames for CX? 135 mm?
So, after my introductry season at road racing I've decided to continue, and I want to take a stab at Cyclocross this fall to stay in shape and to continue to develop my handling skills.
So, I need to build up a cyclocross bike. I already have a spare set of pretty heavy duty road wheels that I can put some knobby tires on. I have some other spare parts sitting around. Of course, I need a frame. I don't want to go nuts on cost. Because I can get a basic Redline Conquest (New) for not too much. That said, all the Cyclocross specific frames seem to fetch a pretty penny. Can I use a MTB or ATB frame? I know the rear spacing for the wheels will be 135mm instead of 130, but can I use spacers of some sort?
Or does any body have any other good ideas for cheap frame build ups? What about the generic road frames that you can get on Nashbar? Any help would be greatly appreciated? Thanks
