With my infinite budget I purchased the:
Nashbar "X" Aluminum Cyclocross Frame
I want to build this bicycle up with true budge parts and then upgrade over time. For simplicity I want a single gear crankset, but I'm confused about my immediate next step. Should I copy the parts off of a budget cyclocross build? If so, which one.
If you were looking for basic components (that could still take a beating) where would you start?
If one part depends on another part being of a particular type or brand, I would appreciate if you could mention that. This would really help us step into cyclocross. Please keep this chain rolling (pun intended)!
