|what steel frames are their besides surly and gunnar. I had to sell my surly frameset to afford my road bike, now I miss my surly very much. (sobbing noises in background). I vastly prefer a steel ride and was curious what my options where. remember, I'm on a college student budget, lower cost are preffered. also e-shopping sites, I try to shop exclusivly at my LBS Rock and Road here in da "Fort".

|Soma Fabrications seems to come up alot when talking about steel frames. Prices are in the ballpark with Surley.

|search ebay and the classifieds here. I always see great steel bikes and or frames for sale. You can probably find a Salsa La Cruz, Independent Fab, LeMond Porpad, Gunnar Crosshair, or Soma for a good price.All these are fine steel rides and usually can be had fairly cheap if you shop well. I built up a full hi zoot race bike from ebay purchases and kept it around a grand. (and I have 2 frames)
look through the classifieds here I always see great deals on whole bikes and/or frames.
