Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Mountain Cycle Stumptown CX

My next ride: a 2005 Mountain Cycle Stumptown CX build

trying to decide on discs or canti's for this "classic". It has my 60cm top-tube dimension, which for CX bikes is hard to find.

Bought this frame/fork used (shipped out of state) from Sellwood, who I highly recommend!

The rear hub spacing is 135mm so it will be easier to find disc hubs than 135mm n-disc hubs.
Never saw this frame before. make sure you post pics of the bike once it is done!

There are still 29er wheelsets/ hubs for rim brakes (not disc) in 135mm spacing. I plan to start off with TRP EuroX canti brakes. - Yes, I will add the finished photos.

The "Softail 2" rear stays are supposedly designed to be horizontally rigid but vertically compliant. Local, small Portland company that is now owned by an Asian manuf. - Specialized killed them off with a lawsuit saying the "Stumptown" (a PDX nickname) was too close to "Stumpjumper" so they had to discontinue it.

That thing looks like it would ride like a truck, as in a full-size Dodge Ram truck. I don't make recommendations to people re the disc/canti drama (but I do ride discs myself).

Does anyone have any extra Mountain Cycle frame or headtube stickers that they are willing to part with?

You're lucky you caught this one before I did, though it may be way too small for me. Wonder if Sellwood cycles has any other giant Cx bikes, I'll have to check when I get a day to bike out there.

The XL 62cm Stumptown has a 60cm top tube; not many stock CX frames have a top-tube longer; My other CX bike is a Cannondale CAAD9 CX which has the same 60cm top-tube but has a longer (200mm) head-tube; I would look for one of those - great bikes.
