 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)

There are dozens of websites thatll do inch/cm conversions. No need to do that math yourself. 23.5 inches is 59.69cm Last edited by deathhare; 11-05-07 at 11:00 AM.
