49cm frame for a 5 foot 7" guy?
I'm about to purchase a Windsor Hour fixy and would like to know, as a 5'7 and a half inch guy with 31" legs, if I should go for the 49cm frame or the 61cm (these are the only 2 options)...
49 cm sounds too small, 61 cm too big. It isn't much of a deal if it doesn't fit.

Damn. Any other decent fixed gears in this price range? ($250 or less)
Hi, I am virtually your exact size (are we twins?) I bought a 56cm Pug to start with that I could ride comfortably but the saddle had to be right down, also there was less than 5mm clearance of the top tube when standing. I have just aquired another Pug at 54cm and this feels right on height but a little short on the top tube length, although this could just be that I am now used to riding a bigger bike. I reckon you want a 54-55cm seat tube but you just have to try anything out for size before you buy.

they will have another Ship with a container full of Bikes in Boxes sent from China to restock their warehouse,
before too long .
then, when you pay them, they will send you the box, to put the bike in it, together yourself.
Too small. I'm 5'7" here.
Biggest frame is 55 cm, smallest should be 52 cm. For road/cx bikes.
For MTBs and 29ers, its usually 17-18 inches.
Okay. Both don't fit you. However, for sure you cannot ride 61 cm because it is way toOOoo big frame for you. 49 cm is still BARELY ok fits on you (54cm fits perfectly)
Good luck !
