Glad the PF30 / BB30 cleared up. On hols at the moment but will check clamp when I get home. Almost certain it is a 34.9. I was lucky on the fork as wiggle were selling at neatly half price - still quite a lot compared to the frame but I sold the stock fork in eBay so the extra was 'only' about £130 (from memory). Surprising how few tapered CX forks there are on the market (although are becoming a bit more common).

it's harder to get a non-tapered disc cx fork. I needed one for my current bike, and in the end, the best option seemed to be the Kinesis one, but not that light as a carbon alloy hybrid thing. All the nice full carbon ones are tapered these days.

Hey Beancounter, Just putting mine together now (slow job, as I decided to race my old ti bike one last time at the the three peaks, so in no hurry now), and I noticed a few small holes on the frame, e.g. one 2/3rd the way down the LH seatstay.

Does yours have anything like that? Seems odd to me. They're like the holes on steel frames to let gasses escape when welding.

Quite excited about getting it up and running for the real CX season though. It's going to be light (I hope). I've got to be practical too, so it's got a beefy PF30 (yep, despite what they said, mine came as PF30!!) BB, sensible 32h tubs, and old faithful SPD's, but I'm also going for a 1x10 setup, using a mix of Red cranks + race face narrow wide ring, X9 rear mech, and Force shifters with the LH gutted. My estimate at the moment is about 8kg, which if I make it I'll be very happy with as a large off road bike.
