    Steel frame recommendations

    Holdsworth??? I assume a British brand?

    Hard to beat the price, even with shipping to the States.

    Steel frame recommendations

    jetdog9 - the Kelly is pretty, but $1200 for the frame makes it pricier than the Gunnar or the Milwaukee

    bubba117 - I should have been more specific in my OP, my fault, but no discs or Vs for me this time around. Dual-pivot calipers are preferable.

    Pisgah2000 - your Kona Tonk is close to what Id like to end up with, but just like a new bike, Id spend time and money making it work for me unless youre talking about parting it out. That frame is the kind of geometry Im looking at, though.

    velodog - dont get me started on the racer culture and cycling . I have a real love/hate thing going on there.

    n2deep - canti-studs only on the Cross Check?

    ^ I'd certainly part out the Tonk. I'll sell anything from just the frame to whatever else you need. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

    A Pacer might be a better choice if you want dual-pivot calipers. It's closer to a road geometry than the Cross-Check. I can't say how the Pacer rides but the Cross-Check is a fun ride, it is a really nice all-rounder.

    I just happened to come across this and thought that I'd post it here.

    I don't know anything about them but what it says there, but it looks like it may be interesting.

    Those Raleighs are very nice. If I was set on doing a neo-retro build that would be a good starting place.

    Steel frame recommendations

    After much deliberation, I decided to go with the New Albion Homebrew. I ordered it via a local shop and picked it up today.



    Tange Prestige fork. Champion 2 frame. Multiple rack mount points including a place for a porteur rack on the fork. Tidy welds and nice paint. Durability remains to be seen.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions and recommendations. Next up will be some frame saver and assembling some of the fiddly bits.

    That's a good lookin' frame.

    I see it's set up for fenders, which makes for a clean installation if you hang fenders. It should make a nice riding bike.
