about Face, 1x10 Disc Set up, Frames?

I was going to do a singlespeed CX but now, Im looking at doing a 1x10 Disc Set up Utilizing The Following:

Sram Apex/Rival Rear Deraileur
Chris King Hubs
DT Swiss Rims
Sram Apex/Rival Shifter
Avid BB7 Road Version

Beyond that I dont know what to use for:

A Frame:

Was thinking the Soma Double Cross DC


Or the Nashbar X Aluminum Cross bike



any others?


Fork:

Winwood Muddy


Or another option in that Carbon Disk ready fork, For same or lower cost.

I saw the nashbar one, is that decent?

Crank:

No damn clue, Want something quality without breaking the bank. Didnt see if FSA had one? Maybe a Sram Crank...

I think thats the big stuff anyways,

Let me know any recommendations

Thanks

Brad

If necessary, I will personally write to Chris King asking him to forbid you from using his hubs on a Nashbar frame. Not that the Nashbar frame isn't serviceable, but if you're going to get a frame like that, you may as well get some low-end hubs too.

I hear good things about the Double Cross, though it still seems a little utlitarian for CK hubs. The Gunnar Hyper-X is another option.

FWIW, I've got a pair of SRAM X.9 hubs, and I've been very happy with them. They don't have the bling factor of the Chris King, but they also cost about 1/5 of what the Kings sell for.

You probably want a double or triple crankset with extra rings removed. Single speed cranksets have the chainline a bit closer in than is optimal. Using the middle ring on a triple probably gives the best chainline for a 1x10 setup and you can use guard rings on both sides. I've got two FSA Gossamer cranksets that I've been happy with. The bottom brackets tend to wear out quickly, but they're Shimano compatible, so you can replace it with a Dura-Ace BB when it wears out. You can often find the Gossamers cheap on eBay.

I work at a bike shop, so alot of the parts come down. Intresting on the gossamer, ill have to look into it, didnt think about going that rough, but it makes sense.

Ill have to see what I can get the gunnar for...

Thanks
