    Suggestions Please

    Hi Guys,

    New here, but not to biking. I currently have a KHS frame with some goodies on it ( Campy record BB, Campy Daytona crank, King HS)

    My dilemma is that i love my bike on the weekends, but the ride to work every day in the city has been pretty taxing. was torn between a SS 29er, SS Cross, or if anyone can reccomend a Track frame that will fit wide tires Such as (steamroller).

    or even if a MTB or older 10 speed that i convert may be a better option

    I like a more relaxed geom.. as you can see i have a pretty big rise on those bars.
    All suggestions are welcome

    Old beater touring frames would be my choice. Nice relaxed geometry, eyelets for fenders, wide tires and bottle bosses.

    If it has short dropouts, then yes; if not, don't sweat it.

    short dropouts can be compensated by half links.
