Where to get a pursuit frame

Aside from eBay and craigslist where are some good places to pick up a pursuit frame? Looking for any steel frame with 650c fork and in 60cm. Anyone on here have one looking to unload?

I know this does'nt directly address your question, but have you look at the Affinity Lo Pro? It is dual 700c but that might fit you a little better considering you are looking for a 60 cm frame. City Grounds has one in 60 cm here. In any case, good luck.

Cheers

I've been looking around for one as well. Affinity's Lo Pro is a great option considering the price point, if you can deal with the less-than-pursuit geometry. I cannot get one because the only size that fits me is in a dual 650c, but that's what I woud get if I was just a tad taller...

Check allofcraigs.com someone was just selling a vintage khs pursuit in 60cm with a 650 front wheel for a great price. I say be patient and keep a keen eye out and you'll get exactly what you want.

Funny you should mention them because they're my absolute lease favourite 'pursuit' frames. something about them looks so wrong. they look so cramped. thanks though

cool, haven't heard of it. although shipping from out of state/country on craigslist doesn't exactly seem like the safest way to go. i'll check it out thanks

Ya, I've seen their work online, looks incredible. But it's a little out of my price range, looking to spend around 5 for one. Plus I sort of want steel. I think they're around 850, no?

If lowes out of you price range and your looking for steel affinity is the way to go, aside from that its going to be kinda hard finding a steel pursuit frame for less than 8 bills Geekhouse might be able to fit that price range-might.
