Hello,
I'm looking to buy a frame, I'm 6' tall and 175# so I imagine an 18"-19" frame would work. Should be suited for single track and city commute (I have wheels for both occasions).
Main requirements are:
Light (Reynolds 853 anyone?)
1-1/8" headset
Has a rear mech hanger
Hardtail
Under £300
Can work with suspension forks

I wouldn't mind a complete bike either.

So far I've added to my list of frames: Kona Explosif, Saracen Kili Flyer, Genesis Altitude, Cotic, Dekerf but I'm open to any suggestions :)

Thank you, Adrian.

No, but I think you can get other drop outs that do. The sliding drop outs are bolt-on.
I can do photos if that helps, but will have to be via direct email as I can't get photos on the forum (I used to be able to do this)

I have an 18" Dekerf Team SST frame but your £300 budget may be a bit optimistic. These tend to go for £500 +

It's a big chunk of cash and obviously I can't lowball you with the most I'd spend...or could I? :lol:

You can lowball me so long as it is above £500 :D
