Cyclocross bike build/conversion

Postby cricetidae » Tue Dec 11, 2007 3:21 am

Good morning guys and gals,

I have an ancient 90s Malvern Star Phase 2 hybrid and was wondering if it was possible to convert this to a unit suitable for cyclocross?

As a novice/no idea bike upgrader the sage advise of the list would be appreciated.

What's a Malvern Star Phase 2 hybrid? Photos? Specs?

For a start, you'll need to find ways to mount those centre-pull brakes and the ability to re-route your cables via the top tube. A trip to a frame builder may be required for some localized welding.

Yeah I forgot that information.

See I told you I had no idea what I was doing. :D

When I get home from this concrete bunker that I work in I should be able to post a pic and get some stats for you.

Thanks for the info.
Todd
