The Yeti ARC X is a really nice frame but would have to be one of the most expensive aluminium CX framesets around- I understand the local RRP is over $1100.00. The Ridley Crosswind is literally half the price. I’m sure either would build up into a great bike.
In fact on the cheaper end of the scale, the Kinesis CX frames are great value too- user benzy has one I believe.
The ARC X is very expensive for what it it is all I’m saying. Pretty sure the price is excluding fork too.
Where can you get the Yeti from online out of interest? My understanding is the Aust. distributor doesn’t let parrallel imports into Australia.
Hmmm, food for thought. Yeti can be sourced from Competitive Cyclist + there is a few local shops here in Sydney that stock Yeti, and can get them in.
Sizing is another issue?? My Paconi track is 59.5c-c seat tube, and is too small. My Pinarello FP3 roadie has an effective c-c measurement of 62cm which is perfect. Are CX frames best a tad smaller for a bit more leg over clearance or am I wrong?
Horatio: Not trying to be narky, but the information you had listed was false.
Jenson USA has what youwant… priced between 700 and 750 (frame only). Fork shouldn’t cost you too much from the same place.
Use freight forwarding to avoid excess shipping/importation limits.
CX frames are now recommended to be the same size as your roadie. drop and move forward the saddle slightly to allow for more power and easier remounts. If in doubt I would def err smaller rather than larger, but if you can go close to the same size do that.
Don’t Velogear have the Voodoo Wazoo frame + fork? From what i recall they’re decently priced, and have been spoken quite highly of. I believe Blakey has one, and also another user posted a recent purchase of one?
