How do you like the frame? Ive been debating getting to replace my CX frame, but trying not to spend loads on a frame

If you can find one for cheap I say go for it. I found mine frame and fork on ebay for around $200 so no regrets there. ride quality is solid, and it's a very versatile frameset. I've had it set up ss, 1x9, and now full 3x9. My one piece of advice would be don't go disc if you do choose it, I had to re-face the disc tabs, and also because the rear dropout is horizontal, it can make it tough to remove the rear wheel if you run any combination of disc, fender, and rack.
