    Singlespeed cross... off the shelf...

    Looking at the VooDoo Limba with its sliding drops, but wonder if there is something else that I might have missed...

    Looking for lightweight!

    Any ideas?

    How high do ya wanna go? You could always have a frame custom built for you, or have track ends retrofitted to most steel frames.

    EDIT: I failed to notice that you were looking for an off the shelf bike.

    Do you mean by, "sliding drop outs", track ends like on a track bike?

    It's probably a good idea so that you can change a good variety of cogs for any given race terraine. I am not sure what else you may be missing.

    Is there some reason that you're not looking into having a shop build you a bike from a good frame and components? It sounds like you'll be dropping some serious coin on this bike, and I think that you might be limiting your options by looking only for an off the shelf bike.

    The image above is from an ebay listing of a voodoo limba.

    The sliding dropouts are unlike anything that I've ever seen before.

    Should have clarified: off the shelf frame. (i.e. do not want to go custom for dollar reasons.)

    I will be building the bike myself:

    Ritchey WCS Fork v. Easton EC90 CX
    Phils laced to ceramic Open Pros
    Paul Levers and Cantis
    Thomson seatpost and stem
    Selle Italia SLR

    Unsure about bars. If I go drops, I will get some aero levers.
    Plain ol' Race Face LP cranks.

    In other words, is there a frame like the VooDoo Limba that I am not seeing?

    Have you looked at the Il Pompino?

    Edit: Oh, you're looking for sliding dropouts and lightweight. This may not be the bike for you.
