Hello folks,

I'm after a few frame and fork recommendations please for a crap & muddy winter weather bike. My requirements are:

Rigid frame and fork
Steel
Disc
Single speed so sliding/horizontal drop outs. I don't really want to run a chain tensioner.

Not something I'm overly familiar with. I'm going to be buying used rather than used and not after anything showy. So what do the good folks of Retrobike land recommend?

Cheers.

Yeah I know, but I'd rather not.

Orange P7 from a few years ago? Seem to remember them being available with sliding dropouts.

Forks, take your pick from Fox, RS, Magura, DT Swiss, X Fusion etc. Model will depend on the frame you get. I'd probably keep away from Fox if you plan to fit and forget.

P7 looks good, needs rigid forks though. Genesis io seems a possible too.

Mate had some Salsa Cromoto forks and liked them?
