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)

nyc rob roy

ok, so after much back and forth between the cross check and the rob roy, i've finally been convinced the rob roy is better for me... at least my price range.

the question now boils down to size.

this is going to sound like a strange question, but would anyone in the nyc area that has a 60/62 rob roy built up let me take it for a spin around the block.

i'm not sure if i should get the 60 or 62 and i'm dying over here.

if anyone is nice enought to let me take a spin i would be greatly appreciate it. i know this is probably a very strange question, but i figured it's worth a shot.

thanks,

eric

only bicycle thieves reference 80s pop culture catch-phrases.

here is a steal for a mark v, the dimensions are slightly different. the rob roy is more like a mtb frame and this is a road frame...
59cm, red, gun metal wheels, $399

*edit: nevermind its out of stock, guess it was sold
