Hi All

Am new to this road stuff but am planning to build a single speed for winter training (sorry I'm an MTBer). I have a choice of frames Just need to know which is best?

Sun
Marlboro
or various raleighs

Can be seen at
http://www.thebikeman.co.uk/frames.htm

also are new parts interchangeable or not.

Sorry for the silly questions but really need the help

Many thanks

Andy

depends which fit the best

as long as they have horizontal dropouts they'll all work fine. Parts interchangeability shouldn't be a problem either.

Try and get one with the thickest rear dropouts possible. Some of the cheap raleighs had nasty pressed steel dropouts which deform easily. Cast is best.
