    It's the same as sizing any other bike where front-center is the most important measurement, not the top tube, seat tube or standover height.

    What's the headtube angle?

    Eighthinch Scrambler - Fenders?

    Anyone know if the eighthinch Scrambler can fit fenders? I know it doesn't have braze-ons but I'm planning on using P-clips. Near as I can tell it might work with 23c tires and appropriate gearing?

    Wow!

    Those DIY stands are really cool. I've got a workbench but it's much too light to work with anything like that. Living on a smallish 3rd floor walk-up kind of prevents me from having anything...

    This is probably the best deal right now. As near as I can tell it's a re-branded Andel crankset, for which $39.99 is a screaming deal.
