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)

Road Bike Purchase

I am considering whether or not to buy an 80's raleigh fixed. Is a 22" frame too small for someone 6'1"? I have never purchased a road bike before.
