    Need frame and fork suggestions.....between $300 and $600

    I'm looking for a frame and fork. I'm new to this whole fixed world so I don't know everything that is out there. I am very specific on what I'm looking for - I'm after a clear frame, don't need rear brakes so no cable housing. I don't need a water bottle bolts (ok if there). 1 1/8 head tube. White in color or matte black. I'm building this bike around a couple parts that I have so the frame has to be worthy of my phil wood hubs and chris king threadless headset. I'm not a going to be doing any tricks just cruising the city. Is there a frame out there that fits the bill?
    I have found a couple like the Soma, Traitor, Leader or a volume cutter.
    Thanks for the advice.

    What kind of tubing are you looking for?
    Steel? Aluminium?

    Mark V Pro is a good frame.

    The fork is drilled for a brake though...

    thanks so far.
    ....and I'm open to steel or aluminum and like the idea of the fork drilled incase I want to add just a front brake later.
