    Like a surly troll, but cheaper?

    I'm sitting on a pile of 26" parts with no frame. I am looking for something utilitarian, the Surly Troll is a good example. The street price of close to $500 is a bit steep though. What are similar, cheaper alternatives?

    a 1x1 with a gear plug?
    the whole "beefy bike with horiz. drops" thing was pretty popular a couple years ago.
    I had a soul cycles hooligan for example, zion made a couple, voodoo I think, the on ones of course... most have rack mounts and "utility" is what you make of it.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    So what qualities of the Troll do you require? Just the rack and fender mounts?

    And a cheap steel fork. Done.

    Or just get on eBay.

    I have a 20" Generation Four Soul Hooligan in Pearl White. I am trying to sell it complete but would be willing to sell just the frame if you are interested. $300 dollars for the fork and frame and that includes shipping in the U.S. only. You can look at pictures at mtbr.com under singlespeed bikes.

    pretty much all of the steel and aluminum 26 inch frames from On One have rack and fender mounts and are pretty inexpensive
