Go on then, be a smartarse and help me find what I'm after...
I want to build up a new winter road bike which will do a bit of cross too. The Roadrat is almost perfect but I don't like the industrial dropouts or the front brake on the wrong (right) side if I use discs (I won't be racing it 'cross).
So, I'm looking for:
Frame and fork only (steel preferred)
Full mudguard eyes for proper guards
And about a £300 budget.
Is there anything other than the Roadrat which fits the above? I can't think of anything.
