SS Frameset

I've been looking for a single speed frameset that is drilled for front and rear brakes and has a threaded fork. Other than the Soma Rush and Kilo are there any other options?

Nope. Those are the only two.

Seriously...take 10 minutes to look around the forum a little bit. You're in NYC. Go to any bike shop and look around.

I've been searching and looking around for the last few days, that's why I posted here. I've found a bunch of ss frames, but only the two with a threaded fork. Almost all frames these days are threadless.

Most track/SMS frames are only drilled for a front brake, not rear. I'm looking for one with drilled for both and a threaded fork.

Yeah it's an option, but I want to see if there are any other frames that I don't know about.

Seriously. Don't most track frames have plugged or un-drilled forks?

Correct me then. Show me the track frames that haven't been mentioned in this thread that come with a drilled rear bridge. That's really my original post. Why don't you just post the frames instead of claiming I'm wrong. Show me, please.

Because I'd be posting pictures all ****ing day. Are you really this incapable of doing some goddamn research on your own? Considering you're on an internet forum, I'm assuming you know how to use the internet.

Here's a partial list, Anyone can feel free to add to it:

EAI Bareknuckle
EAI Godzilla
Leader 722TS
Leader 722 Heritage Edition
EVERY other Leader frame except the Kagero
Pake Rum Runner
Pake French 75
Cinelli Gazzetta
Bianchi Pista
Jamis Sputnik
Fuji Declaration
SE Premium Brew
KHS Flite 100
ANY BIKES DIRECT BIKE
etc
etc
etc

Because you NEED a 1" threaded setup, that limits your choices but the majority of "track" frames - outside of NJS frames - are drilled for a rear brake.

Perhaps you should try looking here.

And that was my original question, the entire point of this thread. Almost all of the frames you listed are threadless, so you still haven't shown that I'm wrong. I've done days of searching locally and online. If I didn't I wouldn't be posting here. This isn't my first rodeo. If you're so bothered by my simple question , then ignore it instead of being annoying about it. Grow up and calm down.

I listed a few that are 1" threaded - or at least have a 1" head tube (Premium Brew, older Pake frames, KHS Flite 100, Fuji Declaration, Godzilla). You could easily get a frame with a 1" head tube and buy a threaded fork. All the frames I listed (and countless others) are drilled for a rear brake. That = you being wrong.

This may not be "your first rodeo" but you come across like a helpless little baby. Good luck on your quest for the perfect frame.

The Soma frames can be built up with a threaded fork, which they sell.


Have you found anything to your liking from the options listed so far, Drainyoo?

I love NJS frames, but I need brakes. I could do with Keiren brakes, but not sure about that. Thanks for the link though, it's a keeper.
