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)

English frame size conversion

currently I'm riding a 58cm bareknuckle frame with 170mm cranks...

i'm trying to find out what size a "23.5inches (c to top)" is in relation to that. im not quite sure what the points of measurement are there, any ideas/help will be great.

c to top means center of bottom bracket shell to the top of the tube.

There are dozens of websites thatll do inch/cm conversions. No need to do that math yourself.

23.5 inches is 59.69cm
