looking to buy a new CX for a few races and to double as a winter bike hence the need for cantilever brakes as I already have a few wheelsets I can swap out

problem is most bikes around 600 quid are all disc

has anyone got any suggestions, looking at the dolan / ribble but was wondering if there was anything else, like the look of the kenesis crosslight but again it seems to have swapped to discs

    Felt and Forme still make an entry level CX bike with Canti's.
    You may be able to get a 2014 Ridley X-Bow within budget if you shop around.

    Or go second hand.

    Check out Paul Milnes cycles, although some of their offerings are the Dolan and Forme frames mentioned above.

    There are some good deals on frames if you are a giant or a dwarf though!

    Incidentally, I built up a Dolan a couple of years ago and have used it for racing and thrashing around in the woods, so I like the cheap and cheerful multicross.

    try 2nd hand, I would imagine you would find some nice £1k rrp bikes knocking around for that price with only a years riding out of them
