    Fixed sizes

    So I have decided that I want a fixie and I recently learned that I am coming into some extra cash in the new year. I currently ride a Raleigh Supercourse from the early '90's and love it, so was looking at what Raleigh has to offer. They have the Rush Hour, which seems to me to be the ideal bike, but they only make it up to a 59 cm frame. I currently ride a 62 cm. Is there something different about the geometry of the frame? Or am I going to have to look elsewhere for the fixie of my dreams. The Rush Hour has the option of being a singlespeed which might really appeal to me after a long day on my feet at work. Any thoughts or alternatives?

    Giant Bowery in XL?

    I assume the geometry on this frame is the same as the ALU TCR

    the XL has a top tube of 61
