Windsor The Hour
I'm thinking about buying this bike and was wonder what the best measurements to go with would be? I'm 6'1.
It's gonna depend on more than your height.
I know knowing your inseam length helps.
But I'm not good with bike sizing, soooo.
My suggestion would be to go to your LBS and try out different sizes and get them to help.
A good place to start is your inseam in centimeters multiplied by two thirds. Thats just a basic technique though. There are other factors. Test ride on if you can, if you can't then I hope the bike you get works out for you.
Ah, okay. Thanks for the info. As for as Fixed gears go is The Hour a good starter bike, anything better iyo that you can recommend?

The Hour is a great starter bike if this is your first fixie. You will not be able to test ride it though since its a BikeDirect bike and they are online only.
No chance of me being able to by this at a LBS? What's the safest, best price I can find it for online?

The thing to do is go ride a fuji track at a bike shop. The windsors are pretty much spot on with their geo. so whatever fits you there will prob be what you want, thats what I did give or take a centimeter because they run in odd #'s
This may depend where you live. This bike shop: http://cyclespectrum.com/index.cfm is owned by the same folks and may have them if you are in FL, TX or AZ.

im satisfied with it but i am slowly replacing stock parts
im trying to figure out what size The Hour to get.

Get the Kilo-TT or order a low-priced carbon fork at the same time, A-la-nashbar or similar
