    Thoughts on a frame?

    Would this Diamond Back frame make a good SS trail bike? It is an Insight.
    It is a Hybrid Frame. Not sure how much abuse it can handle.
    Sorry about double post on this. I had under why Single Speed.
    Frame as you see it is $50. I feel it is to good to pass up.

    I would be hesitant to use it as more than a commuter/gravel path bike. Definitely not for any kind of hard trail riding.
    If you are looking for a bike for lots of trail riding and to use as a SS look for any older 90s steel frame like a rockhopper. They should be pretty cheap and can easily be converted to SS with a $30 conversion kit. They will also handle whatever you throw at them much better than what you are looking at here.
    Again, it is based on how you will use the bike.

    I had the same thoughts. Not totally knowledgable on all bikes so your .02 did help sway my opinion.
    Thanks!
