I have commuted twice, 7 miles each way, on my new redline 925 fixed and my palms are still tingling. This is my first fixed bike and its amazing. I love the momentum
My riding position with the moustache bars is very agressive, and as a result I only have 1 hand position on the bars - the straight ends, which makes it feel like drops. The bars are still about 3 inches lower than the seat after changing the stem which increased the height by about an inch.
I am afraid that I may have bought a frame that is too small, 52 cm. I am only 5'6" .
My lbs engineer convinced me that the 54 cm would be too long. He is not a Redline dealer so he did not have the 54 cm in stock for me to try.
Was the 925 designed to be agressive.
I thought about turning the moustache bars upside down so that the straight ends would be about 2 inches higher. Is this crazy? Any other suggestions would be appreciated
