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)

Frame sizing help for a noob

Hi everyone,

First time poster here.. with a noob question. I'm interested in a used schwinn to convert into a single speed, but I'm not sure if this bike will be too big for me. I'm about 5"8 in height, and the seller says the bike measures 21" from center of the crank to the base of the saddle stem. Will this bike be too big for me? I want to be able to ride it comfortably.

Thanks in advance for the help.
