I'm looking to build up a bike, and while I have certain characteristics in mind I'm not familiar enough with the frame market to know what to look at.
This would be my daily commuter/grocery runner. I live in San Francisco, so I want something that's appropriate for traffic and hills. As far as subjective feel, I want something that's nimble but not overly aggressive.
As for the specifics, I'd like
- 54 or 55cm frame size
- Road geometry, although probably on the relaxed side (see above)
- Rack mounts
- Horizontal dropouts (I'm considering an internal hub)
Can you recommend some frames that would fit this description?
