    Frame Search

    I am looking for a double butted steel "track" frame that only have braze-ons for a water bottle or two. The Surly Steamroller fits the bill. Are there others? I *think* I prefer a 1.125" threadless steerer.

    TIA

    steam roller doesn't really have track geo. just be creative and use zip ties or something to get the water bottle cages on or even drill them youself, it seems like it couldn't be too hard. Your going to be pretty limited to finding frames with only water bottle braze ons.

    do you mean 1.125"?

    i know 1 1/8" and 1 1/2", but unless i'm mistaken, head tubes don't come in 1 1/4"...

    They did. I think it was Gary Fisher who was experimenting with different sized systems.

    Chris King makes a headset to use a 1-1/8 fork on a 1-1/4 headtube.

    Sorry, the 1.25" was actually a typo. The steerer tube diameter isn't a deal breaker, though. Thanks for the input, I have some stuff to think about.

    Drilling wouldn't provide a good enough mount, you need a threaded bung brazed in. Good way to trash a frame though.

    You could also go with rivnuts, discussed here: reveted water bottle bosses

    how about kilo tt, cheap and good frames and you get water bottle things with it. Its a 1" tho but you can run threadles 1 1/8 with a adaprtor if thats what you wanted.

    I like the IRO Angus. It has a threaded headset. Honestly I vacillate about threaded/threadless headset. I like the threaded look but I know the threadless is lighter and stronger.

    I just went through this search and ended up on the 08 Madison.

    Threadless 1-1/8" because I had a Wound Up 1-1/8" fork which I acquired from the Trexertown swap meet on the cheap which I wanted to use.

    The Madison is stiff. It doesn't have unnecessary braze-ons and the geometry is lax enough for a longer rides. I am slowly replacing all of the stock parts. The crankset is next.

    I didn't go with the Steamroller because the BB height is too low and I've had issues with pedal strike in the past.

    The IRO Mark V Pro would fit the bill when it is re-released in the spring of 2009. The Mark V (non-Pro) is currently available but it has cable stop braze-ons which is unattractive when not utilized.

    My Madison currently.
