i might move on to them in the future, but as i am beginning to race, there is simply no need to spend so much money

You don't have to go 135mm rear spacing for disc brakes.

If I was you, I would include disc brake tabs if you do decide to go with discs in the future.

Headwind is right, but be warned that it can be hard to find 130mm spacing disc hubs. On the other hand you can just cold work the rear triangle wider to 135 spacing after the fact when you do decide to switch.

+1

If you're having a custom frame why not future proof it.

135mm should squeeze together. Or do it properly and add a spacer.

The best option would probably be to have something like a 132.5mm so you can go either way - doesn't the surly cross check do this?
