I don't think you could go wrong with a bike built 1995 to 2003. You'd get 130 spacing and the most advanced steel technology. The weight would be right around 20 lbs and you could update the components as needed.

There are tons of 15 to 20 yr old bikes including custom steel that can be had for less than $1000.
