    Options for carbon "North American" geometry disc?

    Other than the Crux disc, Hakkalugi and Altamira 1.3 (2013 Fuji Altamira CX 1.3 Cyclocross Bike -) what are the options for carbon disc CX or gravel grinders with "North American" geometry? The Fuji can be had for a great price, even lower than the Performance link, enough so that the heavy oem wheels will be replaced and still come in for a great value for a new bike.

    In order of importance (if the frame fits)
    Lower BB with slacker angles and longer wheelbase; looking to do multi-hour training rides and would like to mimic traditional road bike feel without the high and short CX ergos

    Then Price, Disc, Carbon, 135mm spacing

    How do you define low and slack? Redline is right there with the Crux IMO with a 72 HTA and 70mm BB drop. Cannondale is a touch higher, but with longer chainstays as well. Foundry has some nice options as well. I think the pivot vault also looks like a good choice, but the BB is a bit high. I would look at Focus and Jamis as well (I think they both have disc options).
