OK, I'm looking to build up a trail/XC oriented SS. I don't have a frame and I want to build one up. I'm looking to buy a bike with these requirements: -STEEL -Decently light, no DJ frames. Somewhere around 4.5 pounds -Horizontal or sliding vertical dropouts, NO EBB -Must have V-Brake mounts -Under $400, I'm not looking to break the bank. If it's a little over that's fine though, tempt me. -New or used, let the spamming begin -1 1/8 steerer tube, designed around 3/4" fork -Long enough for XC (around a 17") -Somewhere around a 70 degree head angle and 16.5" CS length -Cool! I've been looking at the On-One Inbred, it looks pretty cool. Also, I have someone local who can cut tubes for me, would it be worth it to pay someone to weld the tubes for me? I would want TIG welding or something strong. How much would something like that cost? Thanks a lot! EDIT: I also want clearance for a 2.5 rear tire or thereabouts. Now that I look at the EBB, it looks like an OK design. Are they reliable? I want this to be an everyday MTB, so reliablility is key.
