    cheapest cyclocross frame

    I am looking to build up a CHEAP commuter SS cross bike. I had my eyes on the nashbar frame, but they do not have have my size (57-58 cm eff top tube). There are frames on ebay for $99 bucks, but the cable routing is in the bottom of the top tube (which bothers me on a cross frame). Also, I want disc tabs to run BB7s. Maybe I am being too cheap but I want the frame to run at about $100 bucks.

    Has anyone seen frame/forks on the Cheap, I have looked at:
    -Ibex
    -Bikes direct
    -Leader
    -scanatte (perf. brand, misspelled)
    -Fetish
    -Motobecane

    Thanks for any help

    Jenson has a redline Monocog. I'm not sure if this would do the job for you, check it out.

    I got the Scattante

    I got the Scattante cross frame/fork and it built up nice. It includes the headset and seat post collar. It is $250 on the web this morning. No disc tabs though.

    CrossCheck and X-Ray

    In our family we have both a Surly CrossCheck and an Ibex X-Ray. Both seem to be of good quality - given the price. Personally I think the CrossCheck is a little better built and rides a little better, but the differences aren't big and either is a fine frame.

    Nashbar...

    I got one a few weeks back with a coupon for $83.00
    Right now it would be $103.99 after the 20% off coupon

    The frame looks and rides really nicely.
    If necessity is the mother of invention, laziness is the deadbeat dad that knocked her up.

    Thanks for all of the responses-kepp 'em coming!

    Surly Cross-Check, I had one for about 5 years, best bike I ever owned, and I should of kept it, I would get a new one, but I am trying to keep this project total bear bones. I did look at the Ibex frames, and I am considering one.

    Also, the nashbar frame is the one I really want but my size is out of stock, and I am not sure if they are getting more made

    Thanks for the ideas, and keep them coming!

    Can you peel the decals off of the Scattante

    It does look like a cool bike, but the graphics are a bit much

    Thanks
