9592IGH city bike frame suggestions
- Feb 2, 2014Can you suggest a frame and fork, used or new?I want to build a basic city bike using parts I have lying around:* A 700c rear wheel with Nexus SG-8R31 hub.* A 700c front wheel with low-end Shimano dyno DISC hub.* 700c Planet Bike fenders, for 28-35c tires.* Alloy Rear rack, dyno head and tail lamps; Tektro levers from a hybrid bike* MKS city (flat) pedals.* Upright Velo Orange handlebars.I'm fond of steel as a material, and like the ED coating now used by some frame makers. I would like to use disc front brake for quick response in wet conditions. Rear could be caliper brake.Wider, lower-pressure tires are preferred, like 700 x 28-35C.If toe overlap could be avoided, great (for bike path situations).My issue is knowing what frames will work with this particular Nexus hub, and still allow rear wheel removal (with a fender in place). Secondly, I am never sure what dropout width this hub will work with. All suggestions appreciated.
