I'm looking to build up a 'townie' in order to finish out my purpose built bikes and I have some specific desires in a frame. If you guys have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
- fender / knobby tire space.
- fender / rack mounts.
- track-ish geometry (not too laid back, still want an aggressive frame).
- prfer (but not necessary) steel lugged.
I'm thinking something like this:
or the Salsa Casseroll.
or soma cross check.
...but with more compact track-esque geometry... which I prefer for around town.
any suggestions? I've looked around a lot and am essentially looking for some ideas that I might have missed.
Help me find the perfect frame
