    Bike Suggestion

    This seems like a good place for this thread, hopefully you guys can help. I've been wanting to add a bike to the collection for tooling around the neighborhood, going to the store, running a few errends, etc. Would want the ability to add racks and panniers so bosses are a requirement. I'd also like to be able to run as a single speed.

    I can buy as a frame and build or a complete bike doesn't matter.

    Price range is around $400-$500 for a frame or less than $1K if complete.

    Thanks for suggestions.

    I built a SS commuter out of an On-One Pompetamine frame. I might have been able to do it for less than $1,000, but this bike kinda needs centerlock disc 700c wheels and so to avoid hassles I had a wheelset custom built for me. that ate up a significant amount of the budget. I wound up spending a good bit over $1,000 on it, though (I'm afraid to do an official tally).

    That looks like it could work. Just read through your post in the On One forum on your build. Who did you order your frame from?

    directly from On-One. the glow-in-the-dark paint was only available for a short time. I preordered mine to make sure I got it

    I'm digging this build. That frame gives you so many options down the road, whether it be a commuter, touring or just a single speed urban bike.

    Great suggestion. You could do a lot with color and the white frame too.
