My Roomie wants to get super into racing and doing a few alleycats this year and street training. She's an experienced alleycat racer and rides her current street fixie every day in the mean streets of NYC. Right now she has a street fixie IRO that is pretty heavy.
I need recommendations on a very light aluminum frame/fork size 49cm in the $200 to $500 range. Anything good on sale right now? Good websites to look? I'm probably just going to get her to pick up a used Fuji Track 1 complete and we'll go from there, sell the wheels and parts gradually so I can build her something stupid light but strong. But I wanted to check to see if anyone has any good recommendations on more unique frames that fit those criteria. Basically I'm looking for lightness above all else.
