    Long reach road frames

    I've been eyeing the Black Mountain Road v3. I like the fact that it's reasonably priced, simple, and thanks to the long/medium reach brakes, can fit a 32+ while still being road-bike-ish. There's also the All City Mr. Pink, but I prefer the Black Mountain. I have the fork from the All City on order (Whisky No. 7 road plus w/clearance for a 35, but only 373 a-c) for another project, but I feel like I'm going to want to scrap that and build a new bike around the fork instead. Ha.

    So, what other frames like this are out there in the sub-$1,000 world?

    Thanks. I've found a few others as well.

    It seems that to get exactly the weirdass bike I want, something custom is probably going to be answer.
