I'm asking here because I probably wont be doing much cross racing. I have a 29r Tomac hardtail frame I want to do something with. And it being a Tomac how cool would it be to make it a ridged drop bar bike. But looking at the cost of every thing to go with it I'm thinking it would cheaper and quicker to just get a real cross frame. I have a winter road bike that is all Campy veloce. I built it with the idea that I would move the kit over to a cross bike in a few years. I would just need wheels and disk brakes or I could get a regular cross frame and I would just need brakes. Part of me still thinks building up the Tomac would be fun and now that the company went under you cant get them any more.
