Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

New fixed gear frame with rack and fender mounts?

Does anyone know of a manufacturer currently making the following frame:

- fixed gear capable
- 120 spacing preferred
- rack mounts (rear)
- fender eyelets
- no canti studs

[edit] without having to get something custom built

A few places sell the Kona Paddy Wagon frame only (that's what you want, right, not a complete bike). It has eyelets for fenders but for a rack you'd need the seatpost thingy to make it work.

Someone was selling Redliine 925 frames on eBay real cheap as of a few days ago. I'd be all over those were it not for the compact geometry on the 925 frame.

I've looked and looked and that's all I've found. Bugs me alot.

The Milwaukee frame has eyelets, but only one set in the rear.

Or just about one of 1 million old road bikes or "sport touring" bikes.

don't kogswell frames have all that? the milwaukee has eyelets, but not rack mounts on the rear stays. not really an issue there, though.

IRO Rob Roy or Surly crosscheck....you can't go wrong with either. I'm not sure about the spacing (The surly might need spacers)...but they got everything else on 'em.

they're both 132.5mm and both have canti studs.

I would have said the kogswell model G, but they're not being made anymore. And if I ever find one in a 58, i'm keeping it for myself.
