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)

What Paddy Wagon size?

My Paddy is a 56 and I'm six feet tall. No idea about my inseam, and I've got quite a bit of seat post showing, but I think that has more to do with slope of the top tube than the size of the bike. Hope that helps.

You should really go to a shop that can help you determine the right size. Baring that, there are online fit calculators that can be of some help. http://www.competitivecyclist.com/za...LCULATOR_INTRO

5'8", riding a 54cm, but should probably be riding a 53 (if they made it.) 52 would probably have been better.
