I generally don't ask for advice, instead I wish to explore myself. Anyway, I'm looking for a light(ish) disc brake -equipped cyclocross bike for my girlfriend. The problem is, she is 158cm (a bit over 5ft 2in?) with a 73cm inseam. There are some small frames which would do - we test rode a bike with a 516mm top tube, but it was just a tiny bit too long. So, I guess the maximum for the top tube would be around 510mm. Please let us know if you know of a carbon disc frame that would be small enough. And if there simply is no choice in the wonderful world of carbon fibre, alu would probably have to do. Disc brakes are a must-have.
- Spez Crux exists in 46cm but it is sold only in the USA and Asia, not EU area. The 49cm size is a tiny bit too big.
- Felt F65X seems to be the only option at the moment, it exists in size 47 (510mm top tube) but it seems to be sold out everywhere.
- On-One Dirty Disco would be perfect, but the smallest size is a bit too large :/
Also, if you can find a place where the 47cm size of Felt F65X would be available, within the EU, please tell!
F65x should be in Germany and UK in a few weeks.
