    My latest attempt...

    So the Tsunami was just to damn small. The 21 inch TT length had me way over the front and for anything technical it was dangerous.

    So after looking at some 19.5 inch Bianchi frames (which were a bit to small), I've decided to go with my old DB Accent chromolly frame that I had hanging in the garage. It's triple butted chromolly, I have the rigid fork it came with, and it fits... BUT no horizontal dropouts and I hate tensoiners...

    So I have 2 options... buy an ENO hub or weld some new dropouts on the frame.

    I already have a Surly 1X1 hub built up so I'd and up with an extra SS wheel if I bought the ENO.

    Now, I have a welder friend who says he'd have no problem welding it and it should be just as strong.

    Any suggestions?

    That sucks about the Tsunami. In Spanish, a Tsunami is also a Tsunami. Anyway, I'd do the ENO route. Why bother butchering a frame? Unless the cost for welding is less than getting ENO and you already have the Surly hub, go for it. Yeah, a la Office Space.

    Dropouts

    Vulture or Spicer (and others) can also do the job for under 100 bucks.
    As long as your friend can take care of alignment, that should be ok too.

    Oh the welding would be for free. I'd just have to buy some new drop outs.

    Buy Pauls drop outs........ especially if your friend will weld for you. I like Pauls stuff.
