Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

New frame suggestions

This is my current ride:



I'm thinking it might be time for a newer, better frame than this. I want to keep the fork I have on my Kilo which requires a 1" steerer tube (unless the frame you're recommending comes with a carbon fork that is drilled for a brake) and I want to spend around $300.

Fire away.

What's wrong with the current frame?

If you really want to keep that 1" fork then you should get an Angus or the lugged Kilo, both of them are somewhat lateral moves...

Soma Rush would be a very nice choice.

theres a thread that says frames under 500, you might look there for a few ideas as you say you dont need a fork.

The kilo is a Reynolds frame and is pretty well built. For your $300 price point, I think it will be hard for you to find a better frame with a 1" steer tube. Just keep the Kilo and take the $300 you want to spend on a new frame and buy some new parts instead.
