Hoping I can find a Trek or something similar. Ideal would be an old 531 frame with some longer drop outs and fender mounts. Gotta be steel and 56ish cms.

Cosmetics aren't important - just something cheap and enjoyable.

After years of commuting on my 23c road frame - I think it's time to build up something more…functional?

Anything out there? :beer:

You may want something nicer, but I have an '89 Schwinn Le Tour that has fender eyelets and can take at least 28s. It's a 23" frame (according to Schwinn)...58cm seat tube and 56 or 57 TT I believe.

I nominate finding an older Raleigh Competition, I love mine, but you can't have it! Fat tires and looong wheelbase.

Love those!! They seem to be pretty hot these days. Would look proper next to my Mercian.

Don't rub it in ;)

There is a great story about a Raleigh Competition on the Velo Cult Blog (http://velocult.com/2011/08/replacement-raleigh-competition/) . Great looking bikes they are.

There are two older steel TREK's for sale on the Pittsburgh Craigslist.

I've got a mid 90's Univega Superstrada frameset available. Double butted chromo, tig welded. Brazeons for racks and fenders. It's listed as a 56 but iirc it has a 54cm c-c seat tube and around a 55cm top tube. Cheap...
