not sure if this belongs here or commuter forum...i'm looking for a cyclocross frameset that i can move the components from my road bike to. i mainly ride to commute or some charity centuries so i thought a cross frame would be a good way to do both of those. my road bike is aluminum carbon fork, 105 components, only fits 25s.
so i want the cross frame to be able to fit some bigger tires and take racks preferably a front rack too. not a huge budget so i was looking at crosscheck but also looked at the performance brand cross frame. i know they are very different but any opinions on these or other frames. i'm new to panniers/racks, will i be able to put a front rack on either of these? does anyone know the rear spacing of the performance frame?
