    Mr Pink competition

    Looking for a competitor with the all city mr pink.
    Requirements:
    - road race esque geometry
    - rim brake
    - clearance for 32mm tires

    Not too fussy about material, carbon/aluminum/steel whatever. Just want to make sure I'm not missing something else out there before I take the leap for it..

    So you're looking for a smart, practical and versatile frame. Those are rare. What to heck to you want with smart, practical and versatile?

    All kidding aside (though only half joking) you're basically looking for a mid-reach brake frame and those were on the outs even before disc brakes became the thing so choices are limited. But I've researched the same thing recently and there are a few out there.
    I can't remember for sure but Rivendell, Gunnar, Surly, Soma and Honey are a few that 'might' be making off the shelf mid-reach raceable road frames so worth a quick look at their site.

    Seven Red Sky and Independent Fabrication Club Racer, both custom in steel or ti, would definitely be the way to go if budget is not an issue.

    I didnít think I was being so unreasonable! I havenít found any others.

    Was sort of hoping there was an aluminum option out there that is just a touch lighter for the racing days. A titanium build is a bit out of my price window. Essentially just looking for something racy thatís built for long reach caliper brakes that I could move over from my current road setup. Iím not a huge fan of steel but I donít think a mr pink would be a noticeable disadvantage vs a carbon competitor.
