This is my first post, so be kind.
I have been road biking for about 5 years, commuting by fixie for about 2.
My current fixie is heavy steel, which is okay, except I'm tired of lugging it upstairs and hanging it on the ceiling at it's current ~30lb weight. And of course if I am going to upgrade, I'm going to go over the top. It's who I am.
So....... I want to start by finding a carbon frame. I'm having a hard time finding a carbon frame with track "dropouts". I know I could just find a road bike with vertical drops and find a magic ratio or use an eccentric ENO hub, but I'm a purist. Although, that option is still open. I just need advice. My current road bike (aluminum) is about 18lbs when race-ready. Since my next fixie won't need nearly as man components, I'd like to get it below that weight; however, anything below 20 is fine.
Thanks for the help!
