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)

Did you tell her she better kill herself at the first opportunity, or do you hold those views only for your internet persona?

Not saying whether shorties should or should not get the heck out of the gene pool, just wondering if you're consistent or a hypocrite, that's all.

I think it's around a 47, it's a complete though. And, the frame isn't listed alone.

Wow, I was JUST going to ask this same question at 11 o clock this morning, but forgot. I'm glad someone posted this. My girl is looking for a bike, haha, thanks sniks.

Edit: the ones I thought of were the Mark V HD and I thought Pista's came in a 48 or 49, though I think the HD is the better bet for a smaller person as far as value etc. goes. And its cheaper.

I seem to recall prices from these chaps were a tad on the high side. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.
