I'm new to this forum and writing to see if anyone has any ideas for a bike project I'm about to build. I'm looking to pickup a cheap light weight road bike frame 56 or 58cm to build a glow in the dark night bike similar to the Blackberry ad from a couple of years ago.
(see picture below)
Brand names don't matter so much to me as the labels will be coming off anyway. My other bike is a Cannondale R300 that weighs in at 23.7 pounds and I love how light it is after riding a 40 pound tank made by Columbia for awhile. My question is if anyone knows of any cheaper light quality frames that can be converted to a fixie. This bike will be for a short commute to and from work and the main requirement would be that it has horizontal dropouts.
Vintage and aluminum are cool with me.
