    I suspect those holes weren't intended for brakes. Maybe a long-reach road caliper? Looks like it would be too far, though. (And that tires would...

    Well, the tones will be different since the length between the spoke crosses and the rim will presumably be smaller on this bike (24" wheels?). I...

    Wahoo, I can keep coveting that 53cm frame with the 70.5 degree HTA and a standard 45mm rake. (Which is how this discussion relates to the thread). ...

    Yeah, I think we agree :) Fork rake is certainly an important component. While the 45mm rake is pretty typical for CX, I see that the Renegade...
