Toe in the water exercise here - I'm thinking of using up a load of spare bits that aren't really worth anything and building up a nice little singlespeed hardtail.
I'm looking for a 16 or 17" frame with a 23"(ish) tt in steel that could be made singlespeed preferable with dropouts or ebb rather than a tensioner - also has to be disc brake only as I would like it to look clean.
Budget? Undecided yet what do you have? But I wouldn't waste your time if you're going to suggest something you want £300 for.
To recap - spec required
Steel 16-17"/Medium Hardtail frame
Reasonably lightweight (no 5+lb hard core hardtails thanks)
Cheap as poss
