- (Another) Does this frame exist? thread
The original Scandal 29ers had rack mounts but they were deleted from later versions.
Does it have to be frame only or would a full bike do?? All the Cube Acid/Analog/Attention/Aim range, plus the LTD 29ers have rack mounts and would meet all your other criteria. Second hand frames occasionally pop up on eBay too.
Or go custom??

Another thought – rack mounts are a relatively cheap thing to get brazed on. If you find a steel frame you like and you’re not too gone on it’s paint-job, a frame-shop will braze mounts on for really-not-very-much cash and you’d need either to touch up the affected area or get the whole thing re-coated.Posted 3 years ago
29er hardtail to take 100mm-ish forks,
front and rear mechs, disc brakes, decent mtb tire clearance
with rack mounts[/b]…
it’s to make my other bike.
i’d kinda like a roadrat, but need to use as 2nd mtb for time to time, hence forks and tyre clearance, and also to be used for bit of touring and road riding.
deosn’t sound too obscure but searching hasn’t brought up anything yet.Posted 3 years ago
minuim or steel, not bothered.
does a scandal have rack mounts? i guess an inbred 29 fits the bill, kinda heavy tho. anything else?
well, surprisingly fruitfull thread
i’ve got a steel frame i like at the mo (kona unit with geared drop-out) but not quite enough to add mounts, it’s a bit short and i’d like to swap it for something else. and finding a brazer might not be that easy as i’m abroad and moving again soon.
and apart from the inbreds, which i like but are a bit heavy too, other steel frames new might be a bit pricey.
but thanks anyway for all the suggestions. if only the inbreds were a bit lighter i’d go with one i guess, but i’m thinking i’ll hold out for an older Scandal to come up 2nd hand. i’ve had a few minium frames and really liked them, and tho i prefer the idea of steel, scandals sound great ride-wise.
KM would be nice but is also about the weight of the inbred i think.
i’m up for saving some weight as it’ll be for road use too.
so if anyone wants to buy a 16″ unit, or has a small or medium scandal, with mounts, then give me a shout : )Posted 3 years ago
