fixie needed, but which?

I used to have a fixie but fell apart in February and I really miss it, there is something about riding fixed that neither MTB’ing or 20 gears on a lightweight carbon frame can provide. So I’ve just got to get one.

The difficulty comes in that I want it to have the following:

Road frame geometry with drop handle bars,
4 point rear rack mounts,
mudguard eyes front and rear to fit proper full length jobbies,
2 bottle mounts (down tube & seat tube),
standard road rear brake fitted with cable eyes on top tube
clearance for 700c x 25 tyres with guards

and I fancy running a front disc brake but don’t want forks with massive off road clearance or V brake mountings ruining the lines of the fork blades.


Any ideas where to get that from?

Thanks,
John

    Custom? Try Setavento or what about something like a Van Nicholas ti frame and use a White Bros ENO hub on the rear? There's a steel Salsa frame too that might fit the bill. Fork-wise, I haven't seen a carbon disc fork without canti-bosses unless you go for a Pace RC31, which Pace will happlily make a custom with shorter fork-legs for a few quid extra.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    A Pearson Touche will probably fit the bill for all of those requirements (except the disc fork)
