In an endless search for a good, affordable lo-pro/pursuit frameset, I’ve come across lots of different builds from lots of different manufacturers.
Although most currently on the market that are advertised as lo-pros actually aren’t (the whole sloping top-tube thing started when people decided to run smaller front wheels) there’s something about them that I really like.
More recently I came across the Affinity Cycles Lo-Pro. It’s definitely a head-turner, a lot of people I know hate how aggressive they look, a lot of people on the other hand love it. I’d really like to get my hands on one soon.
It’s a fast, stiff, twitchy frameset, a result of the short wheelbase and tall seatstays. There’s some lovely detailing on the lugs of the 1″ fork too. I’ve yet to hear a bad thing about it yet too.
You can check them out along with other Affinity frames on their website.
