    Frame Search...

    I have been looking for several months now, for a frame that has the following preferences/ requirements:

    29" frame (already have the 29er wheelset and other components)
    Rack eyelets on frame at the drop-outs and near the seatpost clamp seatstays
    Would prefer Steel, but would consider an aluminum
    Can accomodate fat road tires like the schwalbe big apples
    Disc brake mount in the rear
    $250 or lower

    Have already looked into the Motobecane on bike island site, but it does not have the lower rack eyelets - only has the top.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    If you can find a deal on a used one a Surly Pugsley would fit the role.

    A Singular Peregrine would work too, no idea on price, but it might be worth shooting an email off to them. I'm not sure if they ship to the US either.

    You could splurge and get the Salsa Fargo

    Really, your best bet would be to find a Kona Smoke 2-9, it's exactly what you're looking for, and they were cheap when they were still being made. Maybe someone still has some stock

    I think a second hand Surly Karate Monkey would fit the bill ...
