Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

i'm looking for tall, older steel frame to build a fixed around, preferably with a track fork end
right now i ride a raleigh with a 37" standover height, thats a little tall for me but i really like it so something in that range would be swell

anybody got any suggestions as to make or model?
