Eighth Inch Scrambler as Commuter?
I posted here a few weeks ago about whether to convert my old road bike to a single speed. I did, and I'm really enjoying it. My new problem is that after riding my bike for a while, I've realized it's a bit large for me, and I've been having a hell of a time trying to find a smaller old road bike to convert. I was thinking about maybe purchasing the Eighth Inch Scrambler frame (http://www.eighthinch.com/scrambler_frame.html
). Whats the consensus on using the Eighth Inch as a general commuter bike? I don't really intend on doing tricks, or racing, just getting from point A to point B. Is there any reason why a track frame may be uncomfortable, or wrong for around town use? The only problem I see is that I may need to get clip on fenders if I use a rack, anything else?
Does anybody maybe know of a similarly priced ($150) general, road type frame?
