    looking for a steel frame that takes 1" threaded headset

    Not brazed, but welded. Not too expensive ($450 more or less).
    Thoughts?

    -semi horizontal dropouts not required, prefer vertical but either works
    -unicrown fork ok
    -prefer a lugged fork crown

    That Pake frame doesn't look horrible for a frame

    thrasher. Just right. Thanks.

    Pake is about the only act in town I can think of as well. Fuji Touring still uses quill type stem I think Windsor tourist I've been told is the same frame. There's a Mercier on that bikes direct site that looks like it's a quill stem bike as well, no canti's though...looks like long reach calipers. Course these aren't 'cross' bikes per say.

    I'd watch ebay, personally I've had good luck.

    An old or new cross frame or a touring frame that takes a threaded headset
    and cantis--

    The Pake is tempting for the price, even though it is threadless, but upon
    closer inspection the dropouts don't look that beefy.
