    Short TT 'cross frame?

    What is a good, short TT 'cross frame? I mean, abnormally short, as I have freakishly short arms and upper torso for my height.

    Two other absolute requirements: at least one set of eyelets on the rear and canti posts.

    Thanks

    +1 on the custom recommendation. Meet with the builder, let him watch your riding style & take measurements. That's the primary benefit. A secondary benefit I found was what you pay extra for in a custom frame you will make up, at least in part, on the builder's wholesaler connections when components are added to the final equation.

    Thanks all...custom is WAY out of my price range right now...not that it isn't the best choice, but I just don't have the capital. If I sell my Crosscheck then I have that, and maybe a few extra $ but I certainly don't have custom frame $.
