Ok, here’s the deal. I’m taking a frame building course this summer and I plan on building a single speed cross frame. I plan on racing this bike on occasion plus a little commuting. What little details would you add if you could build a frame? Here are a couple of things I’ve thought of so far:
1.Angling the track ends to the angle of horiz dropouts. This will allow the brake pads to remain constant for gearing changes.
2.I would like to build a stem with an integrated cable stop.
3.There will be fender braze-ons.
4.Integrated barrel adjuster on the rear cable stop.
5.I’m still debating on running full housing across the top tube. Pro’s or Con’s?
Is there anything you think I should add?
