    Disc Compatible AL Cyclocross Frames & Hubs to Go With Them

    Did some searching and couldn't find what I was looking for. I'm looking to do a CX build and want to go with disc brakes. I'm looking for an aluminum frame/carbon fork (fine with buying a fork seperate from the frame). Wondering what the options are out there as far as disc specific AL frames (would consider something with canti mounts and disc mounts if the frame/price is right). 135 spacing would be a plus, since it seems a lot of the hubs i'm looking at come that way (white industries, ck, phil, xtr, etc). Haven't been able to find a lot of hubs in the 130 spacing, any reco's? so far i've found the velocity 130 disc hubs and rather $$ axles to make ck's 130.

    I built up one of these with Avid BB7 road disks. I love it. You can often get the frame for $110 with discounts and on sale. They also sell a carbon fork with disk tabs (it often goes for $90 on sale). The frame is made in Taiwan...

    I built up a commuter disc cyclocross bike this winter -- Al frame/CF fork. They're not featherweights by any stretch, but I didn't expect them to be.

    Here's the frameset: http://bikeisland.com/cgi-bin/BKTK_S...ls&ProdID=1287
    And here are the wheels: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=380107340157

    Both are the same seller, for some reason he only sells the wheels through eBay.

    That bike island frame looks fantastic as well. I saw a complete with this frame on bikesdirect but wasn't interested in their build, glad to see it is available as a frame and fork! Definitely a front runner now. Are the decals over the clear/easily removable? This bike will see a lot of lockups in NYC. Also, how do you like the ride?

    wow thank you for the list!

    anyone have those formula 130 mm road disc hubs? I've ridden formulas in the past on my commuter track bike and have been very happy with them for the price. Just want to make sure they'll stand up to the added stress of disc brakes and light off-road riding.

    The decals are under the clear. I covered my frame with a bunch of Reflexite tape (on the downtube and stays) for visibility, and just went right over the decals. I posted a pic about a month ago in the Commuter Bikes pic thread over in the commuting forum. Here's a link to the pic:

    The ride is fine for streets. I did take it on my gravel forest preserve trail (which is in really rough condition with winter just ending), and found it to be brutally stiff on the washboard conditions there, but it's fine on the street. My Tricross has a much more compliant ride for the rough stuff.

    http://www.redlinebicycles.com/adultbikes/conquest-sport.html - has disc mounts but they're hard to see with the white on white.
    Disc mounts can be seen better on the frame set: http://www.redlinebicycles.com/adultbikes/conquest-frame.html
