    wanting a unique bike... anything like a Salsa La Cruz... ?

    I'm wanting to build a single chainring bike. With mustache bars or dirt drops, depending how the frame fits me. I never ride my mountain bike any more. Too heavy, too hard, not my thing. I really only ride on hardpack and nice trails when I do go out. So I was feeling out a simple large tire urban cross bike.

    I really like the La Cruz frameset because I can use the 650 wheels and tires that I already have, or switch to a set of 700c tires depending on the terrain.

    is there any other frameset I could do this with?

    Rawland bikes (the disc version, at least) can do this.

    That's a pretty sweet frame and bike!!! I'm going to have to try and find them in stock somewhere and measure it out. Great find!

    If it ever becomes actually available, the Voodoo Nakisi will be unlike anything out there.

    According to their site all they have in stock is XS. Still, the bikes look great and I wouldn't mind having one.
    1999 Waterford RSE-11, 1995 Waterford 1200, 1989 Specialized Rockhopper Comp
    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    What a difference a few days makes

    Rawland's new models, Ravn and Drakkar, are available as of this week and they are both disc-only and set up for either single-speed, internal hubs or derailleurs. These are some appealing bikes. The Ravn offers a flat top tube and shorter chain stay. The Drakkar has a sloping top tube and long chain stay.

    ...

    Maybe check out Singular bikes out of the UK. You can now get them here in the states. I really like the looks of the peregrine

    The Singular Peregrine & the Voodoo Nakisi are the two bikes that I'd be looking at. I'd run them SS, but you don't have to do that if you don't want to.

    I just want to know when someone will finally get around to offering a set of hydraulic brakes with proper levers for drop bars.

    Take a look at the Raleigh Sojourn. My local dealer has them in stock and they are sweet! Don't overlook the One Way and Clubman either.
    Pulling the trigger as often as possible.
