    "you might want to consider Bike Friday, their bikes are custom-sized(only brand to do so), fold quickly available in many configurations...."

    Pure Fix Chief. It's a 26" tire fixed-gear freestyle bike. Very stout build, with a high bottom bracket. I mounted a spare 29r fork and have no problem with pedal clearance.

    Heck yeah! I'd sand-blast it, then powdercoat it in a cool matte color, or try one of the new Kevlar paint coatings. Could be a cool project.

    As you mentioned, SS, so not good for 120m rides. Tho' you could lace a wider range IGH in the back wheel. Polo & Mercier might be workable for your height, but I'd have to caution against the...

    Some better options, if you're specifically looking for a 29r. However, I'd suggest going to your local bike shop first and seeing what they have. My shop gets in a lot of used bikes for resell. It's...

    1.7m: just a hair under 5'7", with a 30" inseam(76)
    1.8m: just under 5'11"
    You're 1.828 at 6'. Not trying to be nit-picky, but there's a 4" spread with tenth m's, so decimals are important.

    Thanks for the head's up. They sure seem to keep their value well. Tempted to get the $750/buy-it-now one, but that $140 shipping kind of sucks. May have been a little rough on it too; seat is tore...
