    Frame Build - NYCBikes or Pake?

    I am interested in building my first single speed/fixie and I am considering a NYCBikes or Pake. Both are around the same price and I would like a basic / simple frame. Any feedback to help with my decision would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    The Pake is CroMo and the NYC is aluminum..

    Personally I like the look of Pake better.

    If you plan on front and rear brakes, you might want the NYC since it has rear cable routing. The Pake is drilled for a rear brake but it doesn't have cable guides so you'll have to use zip ties...

    if the roads are anything like mine (brooklyn) i would strongly recommend the cromo over the aluminum. the steel eats up the crappy surface way nicer than the aluminum does.
