let me apologize in advance, this probably happens often on here, but I was hoping for some bike-buying advice. I know what I want, I just don't know if anyone makes it.
• no suspension, steel frame
• single speed or geared capability (preferably semi-horizontal dropouts, no tensioners)
• disc brake or rim brake capability
• rack and fender mounts
• clearance for 700 x 45's
• fit for a guy 6'4"
• under or close to $2,000 complete
There are some things I've found that come really close - the vassago fisticuff seems to be all of these things, but I'm afraid it will be too small and I've heard the company is on hiatus right now. Same thing with the Rawland Drakkar, I'm worried about the fit. The van dessel WTF is sweet, but I'm not sure about the EBB (any opinions on that?)
What do you guys think? Am I screwed? I'm hoping I don't have to go custom, I don't think I can afford it. (although the Soulcraft Dirtbomb does look really f'ing cool)
