Following the demise of my last frame I'm in the market for a singlespeed CX frame. spot is the first that springs to mind, but I have been looking at a Soulcraft as well. any other surgestions? I intend to gear it 36:18 / 15 freewheel, as it will be a commuter bike (PS I like to spin hence the low-ish gear)

|I would also look into Steelman. His Eurocross frame and fork is race-oriented, while his Cyclocross is a more all-around ride. He does a SS version of his Manzanita frame, so maybe he'd build you a SS CX as an option. I've heard nothing but great things about Brent and his products. I have one of his forks on my Bonty CX (running as SS) and it tracks great and holds its line in the rough.

|You can still find Gunnar single speed cyclocross frames. They're made by Waterford and ride great. They still offer the Streetdog but now it's fitted to take conventional side pull road brakes.|

|A friend of mine set up a Surly Steamroller (single speed frame) for commuting, but went hardcore and is using a fixed gear. It is not a CX frame (no canti brake bosses), but has plenty of tire clearance. Sweet ride, and quite reasonabley priced. Oh yeah, it has rack mounts also.|| |
