you're going to build the new bike up with flat bars too? bear in mind that road frames tend to come up quite short if you spec them with flat bars. Something like a kinesis decade tripster is worth looking at too (disc only though)

at the moment i have essentially a cube hybrid with a bent frame so i was hoping to swap all components over to a road frame with flat bar and brake set up which will keep cost down ,not sure how viable it is but ive been told should be ok ,wheels are 700 ,deralliuer rear should fit as well as the bb,prob a new seat post and f deralliuer depending on frame tube width ,kinesis bit outside my budget ,i can get ribble for £200,ragley £160 and a scott speedster s30 for £200,just not sure what to go for.
