Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Any recommendations for a SS CX w/disc mounts that I can get in north america to take back with me to AU? price is noobject, it is hard to get many brands in AU due to shipping and taxes, but that is just money, someetimes you just can't get it period

SS, CX & disc mounts? + flashy anyone?

any 700c/29" frame with disc tabs

you can either use
a single speed hub (e.g., dtswiss 240s disc SS) with either an eccentric BB (e.g., niner one9, etc) or sliding dropouts (specialized 29", kona 29", etc)

or if you want to use a regular frame
an eccentric single speed hub (e.g., white industries ENO with freewheel) with vertical dropouts (e.g., redline team ti cyclocross, etc.) and no EBB/sliding dropouts

finally, if you really enjoy messing about with track ends and chain tugs then you *could* (if you really, really wanted too ) use any "traditional" SS/fixed frame with either disc tabs or some sort of adapter (cantilever to disc adapter)

Bianchi has apparently discontinued the Roger but you can still find it here and there.

Check some recent threads. This has come up several times over the last couple of months.

But +1 Roger. Closeout at $899 online.
