    Need a track/ss frame with welded cable stops

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a track frame with welded cable stops to replace my Windsor Clockwork frame. I'm finding it near impossible to find a similar frame with cable stops.

    Let me know if you know of any.

    Budget is under $300.

    Thanks.

    Still under your budget for complete bike. Backup parts!

    Why do you need cable stops? Why not just cable guides? You're running brake cables, right?

    There are really nice clamp-on cable guides out there...

    You mean these? http://www.amazon.com/Sobike-Frame-C...dp/B00N4IKLKE/

    Are there better, low-profile ones?

    Factory cable stops are just nicer. The exact reason why I'm keeping an eye out for a 56 cm Bianchi Pista Dalmine.

    I believe Specialized Langsters have cable stops as well and can be found on eBay for pretty reasonable prices.

    Just switch to fixed gear mode and remove the rear brake. Problem solved.

    But, honestly, this seems like a lot of trouble for a minor aesthetic issue on a low end steel frame.

    Nah I don't do fixies.

    I'm going for this frame: Gloss Black Frame Set : Bike Frame Sets | State Bicycle Co.

    As per the suggestions in this thread, I decided that I don't need welded cable stops.

    My Clockwork frame is a few centimeters too big. And the fork is bent from an accident. Also, I replaced every part of that bike so far except for the frame.

    Thing is, that State is definitely not any batter than your Windsor Hour, any is very possibly a downgrade, since it might not even be butted tubing. Why don't you try to find something better, since you have a $300 budget to work with ?

    Edit - for example:

    I saw that one on another website but it doesnt have the bottle things on the tube. I do long distance riding so thats a must. I'm open to more suggestions.

    More adapters I guess: http://www.amazon.com/Two-Fish-Quick...B3P71M20H5T196

    Just FYI, the State frames flex. A lot. Big time at the BB.

    Just so you know, there are a lot of great options for frames w/o water bottle cage mounts:

    https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...s.php?id=44338

    Also, that Pake that you linked is probably an older model with straight gauge tubing, which will make it a lot heavier than the one I linked at RG.

    I emailed Pake asking about the difference.

    I'm going for that Pake you linked. Definitely not the State one anymore. Thanks a lot.
