Decided I want to try cyclocross. I have only seen a couple fo cross bikes in my life.
1. I am going to be looking for a stiff frame (small cyldesdale), suggestions appreciated. Price range 0-750
2. What parts are typically from road vs mtn bikes? This leads to the next parts of the question: what parts can I liberate from my collection of bikes I don't really ride much anymore to build it. I have a full 8 speed XT-R gruppo , which parts should I use from this etc? Should I rebuild the XT-R hubs with a 700c rim? If so, which rims are great values (Can't afford nor do I really need 404s or something as a noob)?
Sorry for the tons of questions in no particular order.
Thanks for helping the cross noob. Oh any youtube videos I should watch for methods or tips?
