Thanks for the suggestions. I have no idea how I overlooked the IRO. ha.
I considered the San Jose, but I was hoping to build it up with slightly nicer components. I wouldn't normally care, but it does not come with a fixed hub and I'd have to replace that no matter what. I've already got a wheelset that I wanted to use.
Woot! The search funtion actually helped me for once.
Anyone have other ideas to add to this list of frames that would be functional for building up a cyclocross-esque (non-fixed) single speed? I'm looking at the PhantomCross Uno or salvaging an older frame but I'm open to other ideas too.
don't think the Uno was an option when this thread started.
huerro - what do you mean about brakes & dropouts....sounds like the post you were quoting was mixing up track ends & horizontal dropouts. personally, I've never had a bike with track ends and almost every bike I've ever owned had horizontal dropouts. Were you saying rear brakes are a PITA with track ends? Well, maybe I don't even care, 'cause I'm not really anticipating any FG mid-ride gear changes (ie, wheel flips, or cog changes) at this point.
