Is there any difference in recommended size for a fixed gear vs a reagular bike?
This quesion may sound stupid, but I'm still tossed between a pre built one, and finding an old frame. There's 4 left on ebay to choose from, or I head out to the swap meet.
for a regular road frame converted to fixed, nah. you'll be fine going with what you usually go with.
if i couldnt find a frame in my size, i'd always prefer to go to the next smallest than the next largest, especially with track frames. the higher bottom bracket height makes things a little different.

I'd always go with my regular road bike size............the only difference being that my fixies all have 165mm cranks...........great for cornering clearance and makes you spin more fluidly and faster.
