Large Single speed frame

Postby clamont » Sun May 18, 2014 10:08 am

Hi..have been looking around everywhere for a 60 or 62 cm single speed frame.
Plenty of 60's around, but the headtube is around 150 to 160 ..need around 200 as I am tall.
Can buy overseas, right size , but the freight is huge.
Found one is US but $460 freight for a $220 frame.
Prefer 1x1/8 steerer tube.

Any suggestion would be great.

I ordered some hubs from factory five. Arrived in good time and was the best price that I found. Online help was fast and helpful too.

I was a little hesitant ordering from a Chinese website, but found a few reviews that seemed legit before I ordered. I also wasn't spending a lot of money so took the chance.

Hi bychosis and thanks for the feedback.
I sent them a email, previously,also signed up for newsletter, price for freight is excellent, with them saying would like to try to keep it low.

We buy lots of stuff from Chinese websites(cycling related) clothing ' lights etc..they have always turned up..

Cheers
