Hi all,

I'm looking for a new road frame to build up. I'm going for super light, but not balls to the walls super expensive. My only real restriction is that I want it to have disc brakes. What are my frame choices?

Yes, thank you. I realized that right after I posted and I'm not sure how to delete threads

Relatively cheap frameset would be TCR Adv Pro Disc.

I'm thinking about getting a disk bike too. How about the Fuji SL Disk?

I considered both the TCR Advanced SL Disc and Izalco Max frames. Ultimately I ended up ponying up a little bit more for the Emonda SLR Disc frameset. It came down to Focus not selling framesets in the USA and the TCR just being a bit too stiff for my weight.

Got the TCR Adv SL Disc, definitely a great ride. I think the geometries suit me very well.

If you want to go light, then the Emonda disc
