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)

Monocog fitment

Looking to buy a monocog but I've never seen one in person and the shops here don't have any on the floor but can order me one...
I have a hardtail mtb with a 23" top tube measured c(seat tube?) to c (headtube?) so a 17" monocog is similar? monocog sizes(http://www.adventureracingconcepts.c...cromobike.html)
I'm 6'1" so I dont want to buy too small... anyone with a monocog help me out?

Thanks much

If you're 6'1" go for the 19"
the 17" may be a little small.

My MTB is 17" and I'm 5'11". It's a tad small for me, so you should go for the 19".
