I'm looking for a frame and fork. I'm new to this whole fixed world so I don't know everything that is out there. I am very specific on what I'm looking for - I'm after a clear frame, don't need rear brakes so no cable housing. I don't need a water bottle bolts (ok if there). 1 1/8 head tube. White in color or matte black. I'm building this bike around a couple parts that I have so the frame has to be worthy of my phil wood hubs and chris king threadless headset. I'm not a going to be doing any tricks just cruising the city. Is there a frame out there that fits the bill?
I have found a couple like the Soma, Traitor, Leader or a volume cutter.
Thanks for the advice.

What kind of tubing are you looking for?

Mark V Pro is a good frame.
The fork is drilled for a brake though...
w-base sometimes sells a frame, the durcus one master. got to check one out today... matt black and mob as ****. pretty light and VERY nice and tight feeling.

thanks so far.
....and I'm open to steel or aluminum and like the idea of the fork drilled incase I want to add just a front brake later.
