I'm thinking of buying a new frame for a purpose-built commuter, urban warrior, all-rounder bike.
Here's what I'm thinking it should have:
braze-ons front and rear for fenders
clearance for at least 28c tires with fenders
drilled for brakes front and rear (even if I only use the front)
braze-ons for a rack would be nice as well, but not required.
Of course, if money were no object, I'd just have Waterford or IF build one for me. But, since I'd like to have enough cash left over to buy a new wheelset as well, I'm pretty much limited to a production frame.
What do you think?
