Hi, I'm new to the forums, I want to buy a Dawes SST as my first fixed gear bike from http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/dawes/sst.htm.
I realize I will have to buy a fixed cog and lock ring as well. If anyone has any recommendations that would be appreciated.
I was hoping someone could tell me what the best size would be for me. Here are my measurements:
Inseam - 33" (with shoes)
Height - 6'
I will be using this bike for city commuting, not more than a couple of miles, and casual riding.
for the kind of riding you mention, you want a more upright position. So you want a larger frame so the height of the bars is close to the height of the seat.
I ride a 56 and am 2 inches shorter than you. My clothing inseam is ~ 32, but measured as should be done for a bike, it's 33. I suspect same is true for you - meaning you if you use the link above, your probably a 34 for bike purposes, so I'd suggest 58.
