    Drop bars and disc brakes

    Does anyone have a single speed bike with drop bars and disc brakes? If so where did you purchase it? Hanks

    Having been looking for a suitable replacement for my drum brake equipped vintage Fuji single-speed conversion that I used as a wet-weather bike (it was totaled in a collision with a car), I've been looking into this as well. There are a lot of options out there, but the one that's most appealing to me is the All City Nature Boy Disc...provided I can figure out how to get a rear rack to work with it, as well as fenders!

    The Nature Boy has hidden fender mounts that can also be used to mount a rack.

    I'm well aware, but their location on the seatstays makes it so that they don't appear to be compatible with my preferred rack (see my thread on the subject)
