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)

6' 3" -> 59cm Mark V... Sizing is weird so I don't know a comparable size.
60cm Fuji
54cm Concord beater... way too small.

24" Trek 610 roadie

ps: I'm 6'6", the 610 is a tad small but it was free. It's just fine.

Woohoo. Tall people! You should add more sizing options, sniks.

I'm 6'1" and ride a 60/61. I have a short torso, so my next frame will ideally have a 62cm seat tube with a 58cm top tube.

i tend to like the look of smaller bikes over larger bikes. like when you can tell the frame is in the high 50's or maybe 60's i'm like eh. that being said i ride a 53 square and it's pretty perfect.

57 and 58 but I could go up to a 60 cuz of my inseam (34.5) even though I have a short torso/arms. The 57 TT is what is best for me though
Hoorrrray for being shaped like a T-Rex!!!!!

5' 9"
53-54 cm or 17-18"

Another interesting poll might be crank length and inseam. My SS has 175, road/mtb 170, touring 172.5. I can't really tell the difference, they all ride so different anyway.
