Frame recommendation: Like Kona Kilauea, but with horizontal or track dropouts.
I have been riding a Kona Kilauea 18" frame for the longest time (90's model). I love it. I have converted it to singlespeed by way of eccentric hub, but I don't like this solution very much.
Is there any (contemporary or not) frame with the same geometry, but horizontal or track dropouts? Steel would be best. Actually, I don't mind of the rear wheel is a bit more removed from the BB - that would be actually good, but the geometry of the front triangle should be identical to the Kilauea. Kona actually made a LOT of other frames with the same geometry as the Kilauea, but all of them have vertical dropouts.
