Newer heard about this sport before, my first visit, I`ll read some more in the next days. I think nobody can even spell the name over here so looking for a bike means importing..
You describe higer BB, "smaller" frames, canti`s, broader bars, I am thinking: My old Nikishi MTB, 28" wheels (is 622-37 ok?) approx "hybrid range" gears, canti`s, seat. All this I`we got lying around.
Need to buy bars, brake/gearshifters I think. Got older brake levers lying around. Are they good enough? Problem then is gearshifters. Can not see myself getting used ti stem or downtube sifters, especially if I try this type of riding. Then if I buy new brakes/shifters for this bike I`ll get spoiled and keep wanting more, and more, and more.. for my other bikes
Also: Is the "male type frames" an absolute "must" or can I use a mixte frame to build from if the rest is ok. Just wondering, I looowe the mixte
