I am building up a Canfield Nimble 9 as Rigid/Singlespeed w/ a 480 a2c TA Carbon Fork.
I will be using it for XC riding but CX has finally came to my area and I would really like go out and suffer this fall.
After completing my N9 I will start building a new FS 650b bike so my funds will be low.
Other than the weight difference between a legit SSCX bike and my Rigid/SS N9 what other problems might I have??
I compared my frame against the new Norco threshold. I will have 30mm more reach (438vs407mm). The N9 will be about 1 degree slacker on the HA. ETT will be 45mm (635vs590mm)
I am running a 50mm stem on the N9 so that will eat up some of that ETT length.
I am planning on putting a set of drop bars on the N9 and I have a set of CX bb7s I picked up for $20 and some Cane Creek Hoods.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
