    Frame Discs Flats

    Hello Everyone

    Thank you in advance for any pointers.

    I'm a Brit , and looking for a bike which is disc specific , gears , and flat bars.
    I've come up with Badboy1 with some key changes, or here in UK the Boardman Pro but this is a little racy .
    My commute is country rolling roads and into town .

    Other thoughts have been a cyclocross disc bike with the obvious changes.

    Ok over to you and thank you again.

    Not sure how available this is over there, but a Surly Long Haul Trucker Disc with flat bars. We have a customer we did the flat bar conversion and Shimano Hydro brakes on. He loves it! Rides all over town with it as his primary transportation.

    Orbea Carpe H.30, H.20, H.10
    Bianchi Camaleonte 2 or 3

    I bought a Carpe H.30 a year ago. 3,200 miles on it now. If I had to do it all over again...I would probably buy a disc CX bike with rack mounts. Hybrids are a bit heavy for pounding out road miles for training and I can't afford a fleet of single purpose bikes.

    let us know what you end up with. I'm currently on a hard tail MTB, but looking into the Surly Straggler once it's released (don't mind the road bars myself)
