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 size?

So i've made my mind on buying a windsor hour. I'm not sure what size to get. I'm debating between 52 cm, and 54 cm. Is there a big difference between the two in size? By the way, I'm 5'7

And does anybody know where i can buy nitto riser handlebars online? thanks

Get a 52, I'm 5'9" and ride a 54.5 that's a little on the big side.
For Nitto Risers, go to Benscycle.com under the Track/Fixed Gear section, and go to Anno'd Products or Handlebars. Should find 'em.
