700-1000 for a single speed nyc
ok ok, i know it's been asked before and i've done my fair share of searching the web, but when it all boils down to it, it seems like people on the forums know best.
ok, so i started off thinking i was going to get an entry level single speed. then i talked myself into spending more. i am thinking about building one from scatch. i've played around on iro's website and have almost pressed purchase, but i wanted to get other's opinions on what i want and what would be good for me.
i live in new york city, i will hit some pot holes. i'm 6'3" 215 lbs. i like a little give, so steel frame is a must. as far as frame geometry i had a really awesome used bike that had the perfect geometry. it was the raleigh olympian. i'm trying to get something as close to that as possible b/c it was such a nice ride for me. here's a pic
thanks for your time. and thanks in advance for your opinions and thoughts!!!
