Steel single speed

Postby jonsio » Fri Feb 16, 2024 1:33 pm

Hi all,
I currently have a specialized langster with 25mm tyres on there. It will be tough to fit wider tyres. Most bikes I have looked at won't fit much more than 28mm. Can anyone recommend a steel single speed that will fit 700x32 tyres (minimum) on them?

Thanks

What's your budget? Surly Steamrollers are good bang for buck. (Second hand that is, don't think they make them anymore.)

On-one Il Pompino - in a similar vain.

Oh, the Bombtrack Arise! I had i commuted on one for a few years. Running 700x50 big apples, that thing was solid.

Another good bang for buck one would be an older Reid SSCX if you can find one floating around second hand.

Thanks a lot, the Reid is probably a good one. I have a budget of 5-600 and keen for a second hand one to try get a bit more bang for my buck.
