I’m going to Maastricht, Holland for the next year or so to study and i’m building up a bike to take with me. Currently selling my road and track bike in hopes to build a basic quality SS commuter/town/gravel bike.
I’m using some parts from my track bike (wheelset, stem, seatpost) but I can’t decide what frame/fork to get.
My criteria is:
[li]Black Steel Frame
[/li][li]Internal Cable Routing
[/li][li]Fit up to 35c tyres with fenders
[/li][li]1 1/8 Steerer
[/li][li]No canti mounts
[/li][li]120 rear spacing
[/li][li]water bottle mounts
[/li][li]Stainless steel drop outs
So far I have been looking at the Fairdale Parser as I can get the frameset to me for $400 but I’m wondering if there are other bikes/frames that fit my needs.
I need a really basic strong frameset, I will be putting a pass & stow rack on the front.
I like the all city big block but it has no internal routing and only fits up to a 32c.
Yeah only problem is im not going until June next year and I already stupidly started parting out my bikes so I need a bike to ride/commute on so I figured may as well build one now that I can use here and over there. I’ll probably bring back another bike when I’m over there anyways.
