    Kona Explosif 650b- has sliding dropouts and you can buy SS specific ones. Can be bought as frame only from various places.
    I love mine!

    I am looking for a new hardtail single speed, in steel.

    I love the cotic soul but would like sliding dropouts
    I like the look of the Pace RC127 but it seems like its vapour ware

    I also like fat chain and seat stays from an aesthetic point of view.

    Cheers

    The explosive does look cool and ticks a lot of boxes. Whats it like to ride?

    Fantastic. I’ve owned mine for a year now.
    The geometry is spot on and the finish is really nice.
    120mm forks suit it perfectly. It’s subtle enough to do 60+ mile rides comfortably.
    I’ve been looking at selling ONLY to get the Ti version. Love it!

    Sadly mines a 17”.
    Can’t seem to find any in the UK, but bikeman is a great shop. Send them an email. Nice chap.

    You won’t find a Pace RC127 anywhere, there is a prototype, and that’s it. Went to the magazines for a test, but hasn’t gone production yet 🙁

    Consider a Surly 1×1 and put Dirt Wizard tyres on it to get 650b size wheels.

    You won’t regret it (but not sliding dropouts).

    Itas a term used to describe software like games that are bigged up but dont actually exist and will never come out.. I didnt know what the bike version of that would be so I subbed with vapour ware.
