I am thinking of building up a new ss and am looking for recommendations on a frame. I would ideally like something a little closer to road geometry than straight track geo. I would like to get something a light as possible, definitely want brake mounts for rear and holes for bottle cage. I was looking at the aluminum leaders(735, 725, 721), but am concerned the geometry might be a little too hardcore track. Also - I would rather have just the frame as I already have a decent carbon fork (1 1/8).

I'm sure there'll be more informed recommendations to come, but I don't really want nor need track geometry either so I use a vintage road frame. A lot of riders in my local club ride fixed and there are a couple with Soma Van Ness frames. They have sort of "road sport" geometry and can fit 28mm tires. Also, they look really sharp. I'd have a tough time ditching the fork though as it's damned attractive.

What is your budget?
Wabi Cycles makes a great light frameset with a little more relaxed geometry
