At the same time as reestablishing US manufacture of Titus frames, the folks from England’s On-One/Planet X have been working towards establishing a beachhead in the US- oh, and releasing a sub-$800 disc-compatible cyclocross frame. Slackers.
Arriving in the Yorkshire-based company’s Portland, Oregon, warehouse in two weeks, the Dirty Disco has already made it’s mark at the epic Three Peaks Cyclocross race and seems to tick all the right boxes for a bargain-priced ‘cross disc frame / foul weather commuter. If it rides anything like my old Il Pompino, it’ll be a blast. Click though for more details and gauzy photographs…
- 135mm rear / 100mm front (standard mountain disc) dropout spacing
- 160mm rotor compatibility
- Clearance for up to 40c tires (tyres?)
- English (of course) BB
- 31.6 seatpost
- 1 1/8in stem
- Customer-applied (or not) decals
- 34.9mm front derailleur
How about some geometry?
No final weight yet, but the Dirty Disco is available for pre-order here.
