Just wanted to introduce myself and pose a question or two. I just recently became interested in riding a fixed gear as I feel it will make my boston commute even more efficient. However I am switching over from a hybrid by Giant. Currently I am having a hard time making it out to a bike store to check what size fixed gear I should purchase and I was wondering if anyone could offer some advice.
I am 5'11'' and have a 30" inseam. I am currently riding a 19" Giant which seems to fit. I saw a motobecane on ebay for about 300 bucks, I figured that was pretty good compared to some of the outrageous prices I have seen lately. I believe it's "the messenger." Anyone have any experience with this bike? I know the other option is to strip down a road bike and build my own fixie, however I have very little bike knowledge so therefore for my first bike I would like to buy pre-assembled.
Thank you for all of you help!
