*HUNTER CYCLES* cx complete bike by Blue Lug on Flickr.
On display here is not only a gorgeous Hunter CX rig, but also one of the most compelling arguments for a PF30 on a CX frame…easy SS conversions!
A few companies (Beer Components, Wheels Manufacturing, Problem Solvers) are making PF30 compatible eccentric bb’s these days, which means no more rear wheel slip when you drop the hammer, and no need for a chain tensioner! This also comes in handy when dealing with disc brakes, which can be notoriously tricky to set up on a frame with horizontal dropouts.
All in all, a pretty good (and lighter) alternative to using sliding dropouts for those folks who only have room for one CX bike in their lives.
