Anyone have suggestions for an inexpensive carbon 'cross frame? I want it more for commuting than for racing. But it might see the occasional race over the barriers.

Stevens could be the cheapest one with 1300,- Euro for the frameset.

Greetings

Email Joe Holmes at Seigler Imports. They are importing a Taiwanese carbon monocoque Cross bike soon if not already.

If you cannot find them, PM me and I'll give you the email address.

I'm interested in carbon for a couple of reasons.

1. I have a steel cross frame and it is HEAVY. I want something lighter.
2. I want the vibration dampening and compliance that an aluminum frame doesn't usually offer.
3. Titanium seems to be more expensive than carbon these days and this is a budget project.
4. As wierd as it sounds, the bike has to be made of something with no magnetic signature or magnetic properties. Specifically, no steel and minimal metal. I work and live (part time) on a minesweeper. If I want to bring a bike with me when I travel it has to meet some spefic requirements. Carbon fits the bill and a 'cross bike tends to be more versatile for the places I visit than my high end road bike.

As for the weight, I don't have a specific weight limit in mind... other than it must be lighter than the steel frameset hanging in my shed right now.

I emailed Joe a few weeks ago and no response. Any word on the cx frame? If not, would you mind inquiring (since you know him)?

Thanks
