    Frame change ??

    I currently ride a 2006 Brodie Romax.

    I don`t race but i love to ride my cross bike on long fast paced rides where ever
    my curiosity might lead me.From paved roads to whatever types of trails and paths
    and whatever season.
    I don`t want to sell my bike and buy another one.
    I don`t want to give up having disc brakes.

    I thought about just buying a disc compatible frame that was both light and durable
    and had a more race oriented geometry than my Brodie which seems to be a little
    on the relaxed side.

    I`ve already swapped out lots of parts to save weight.
    The only thing i have not changed is frame and wheels.

    My bike currently weights in around 22 1/2 lbs.
    I would like to know what is available in a disc specific frameset
    that is still somewhat reasonable in price.
    All my other components are worth swapping over to another frame.

    Thanks

    I think you are silly.

    Save up for a road bike and go nuts on and off the road.

    I already have a road bike that i put a lot of miles on.
    I like to ride my cross bike when the weather is less than ideal
    and when i look to get off the pavement.

    Romax seems pretty race-oriented to me . . . I mean, most cross bikes are designed to be a bit more stable than a comparable road bike. Is it the weight you are concerned with? Maybe just upgrade the fork to some carbon job?

    Seems like most of the truly "race-oriented" cross bikes don't come disc-compatible, presumably to satisfy the UCI's outdated rules on brakes.
