Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

ISO: SSCX frames with 120 rear spacing, steel

i posted this in the SSFG forum, but am getting limited answers, thoughts:

i've just made a decision about a ride i'm going to attempt next year in single speed fashion.

i'm looking for a frame that meets this criteria:

-steel (though i might consider alu, steel is the preference though)
-120 rear spacing (plan to run it fixed most of the time, but single speed mode for some major dirt rides with tough technical downhill segments)
-canti brake studs (bike should have clearance for at least 35c tires, though i'll likely run 28's most of the time)


maybe my search skills are weak, actually they probably are, but i'm not finding too much in this category, what's out there?

You got your Motobecane Phantom Uno, it's got 120mm rear spacing, I think it also comes with a flip/flop hub.

The Fuji Feather CX is another steel framed ss cross bike that comes with a flip/flop hub and is pretty affordable. I don't know if that one has 120 on the back end, though.

Seems like, for the most part, 120mm rear spacing is out of style for cross bikes.

Edit: Just read your thread in the other forum. Looks like you are wanting just a frame. Have you considered looking for a used, vintage frame with wide clearance and canti studs on ebay (or wherever)?

The On-One Il Pompino meets all your criteria and is cheap and awesome to boot.

Note that if you have a track-style rear wheel many are easily respaced to 130mm. The major advantage of a 130 spaced frame is greater wheel selection, and being able to take advantage of neutral pit wheels at a cross race.
