Bad fixed day, question about frame sizing?
I was all set to build up my fixed project, a '77 Fuji, when I noticed there is a crack the length of the threaded portion of the forks. Damn! I was so close to installing it, thankfully I noticed the crack.
Anyway, the broken fork makes me reconsider my project...so I need a little help regarding sizing of the frame.
Is a fixed gear (conversion) supposed to be the same size you would ride as a roadie?
The Fuji I was building was a little tall (it was $5) and I was going to make it work, but now I have to use another bike. I have a few other bikes around (thrift store finds, etc.) but they're a litlle small. I should be on a 56cm (or so) and the Trek 500 I have around is more like a 54cm.
Is it traditional to have a smaller frame for a fixie? It seems to me that seatposts in the pictures are way up there.
