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 called bikeman 120mm and then they answered my e-mail about a week later 126mm. Oh well, I went and got a Cayne Uno frame instead.

I'm going to take a stab at it and get one. It fits the bill for me, 120mm spacing, two water bottle mounts, rack mounts, and roadie geometry. Wish me luck....
