I would like use a MTB frame to build an adventure bike, for the following reasons:
Use disc brakes
use wider tyres
avoid a using a gravel/cyclocross bike/frame because doesn't allow wide tyres and they are expensive
I am worried about the fact that a MTB frame is quite longer than a road bike and a cyclocross bike, and so the top tube will be long and with stem and dropbars will be too stretched and so uncomfortable over a long day on the saddle.
Would these factors make an adventure bike on a MTB frame too long, and so too difficult to ride over long distances? Or are there other considerations?
