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 think you would be happier if you had a brake. Oh, and always wear protection..and by that I mean a "helmet".

That is completely meaningless as far as how the bike fits. If that is the case your saddle is probably too low though.

What is with the geometry of that frame? My god. What spawn of hell is that frame? That just might be the ugliest bike I've ever seen. But if you are happy with it....more power too you.
