Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented.

What Frameset is closest to this one?

Hi,

I live in France now and have a cheap bike with this frameset geometry in L (see attached). I love the frameset as its a perfect for riding single trails and off road. But alas, I can't bring it back to the US easily.

What framest is closest to it in geometry? I'm hoping to move the components from a 2011 Fuji Touring to this frameset so it would (ideally) need:

a) Thread BB
c) Cantilever brakes (though not required)
d) Quick release wheelset compatible
e) Exterior cabling
f) space for 32-38mm tires

There's probably some older carbon framesets out there with that geo, however a quick search gave me these two steel frames:-

1. old qr Bianchi Volpe 61cm
2. old qr Gunnar Grand Tour 58cm

Fuji Jari or Breezer Pro?

These two bikes are the closest I've found

Fuji Bikes Jari 1.1 Frame

Any thoughts on the bike? But to get the same stack and reach as the bike I have now requires me to go to a size XL (58cm) where as I normally ride a M/L (54-56cm).

I also found this Breezer Radar frameset, Breezer Bikes - RADAR PRO FRAME - Bike Details which gives me the exact same stack and reach (within a few mm) in size 54 but there are no details on the internet and Breezer don't respond to emails. I don't even know what it weights!

The bike I have now isn't available in the US, its a 2017 B'Twin Triban 100/500 series. It's just a cheap bike, but I love the geometry.

I know you're not in the US but performance has a killer deal on the Fuji frame right now https://www.performancebike.com/shop...-11-18-31-8748
