    Another Newbie

    Hey Guys,

    I am thinking about building a Cyclocross bike and have my eye on a Redline frameset. What parts do I need to finish the bike. Does it take 700c wheels with 130 or 135 length hubs? I am assuming that only Canti's fit on the bike which work with STI levers? Are the cranks normal road cranks? Sorry for all the really basic questions. Just trying to learn the most about this before I get myself way over my head.

    Thanks

    Bill

    Yes the cranks are standard really any crank will do just they have a smaller large ring normaly 38x48 or 39x48 rather then the standard 39x53 found on road bikes. Canti's are normaly used since they will work with STI shifters, other option is Tekro Mini-V brakes. And you will use standard road wheels 130mm spacing and 700c rim/tires.
