I'm looking for reasonably priced carbon cx-frame(set) for disc brakes. I would really like it to have internal cable routings (at least in top tube) for better looks. I know, that many cx frames has cables on the top of the top tube for carrying purposes, but I don't race. The price range would be somewhere under 1200 eur...
So far I have found following frames:Dirty Disco
: nice, good price, but the cables on the top tube.... Axman
would be a potential candidate, but I haven't got any response about price/dealers from them.Grammo
looks nice, but do they have any dealers in Europe?Stevens
looks very good, but I think the price rockets way too high for meMerida
is a strong candidate still, 'cos I don't know the price of the frameset. Anybody?
Would one alternative be 29er hardtail
, or would it look too heavy for road use? Anything else one must take in consideration, if 29er hardtail is used with road groupset (SRAM Force)?
Any experience (or forum threads) about Alibaba-frames? Are you getting just as much quality as the price indicates?
