< 49cm track frame to build SS

Postby a_liss_a » Wed Jan 11, 2012 1:15 pm

Anyone have any recommendations for a 49cm or smaller track frame to build a single speed (flip fixie) ?

Ideally steel over alum.

Not fussed if 700c/650c.

Budget for frame AU$500 inc. shipping (negotiable to a degree if can find something promising)



Comparable geometry - my roadie is http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-au/bik ... 274/44186/ in the XS and fits like a very comfortable armchair.

Thanks in advance!!!

Europa do custom frames for a bit more than your budget:

Thanks for the suggestions.

I've ended up purchasing http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/FROOMC/on_o ... peed_frame

Building it up now, so we'll see how it feels!
