    Looking for a new single speed

    Hi ya'll

    I am looking to get a new single speed . trying to get something super light that has drillings for both front and rear brakes.

    I have a set of dp18's to put on if the stock wheels are really bad. but i don't want to get a frame and piece it together. so primarily looking at stock builds.

    I would like to spend $1k or less.

    So far the top 2 contenders are the motobecane team track from BD, or the wabi lightning.


    any other suggestions that would fit the criteria (super light and has drillings for both front and rear brakes, under $1k)

    wabi vs lighting, any thoughts?

    thx!

    DP18s pretty much kill the whole idea of getting a "super light" bike.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    ya, i know..i wouldn't put the dp18s on the bike unless the wheels that came with it were heavier / worse...i dont really wan to put them on at all.


    as for the wabi..it looks like a nice frame, but the components are no name, which may be fine and all, just not sure. and the drop outs look like they would get chewed up pretty fast...thoughts?

    anyone know stuff on the wabi wheels?
