    I want build beach cruiser design, fixed geometry frame.

    Asi I wrote in the title, I plan to produce a beach cuiser frame, with design simillar to beach cruiser bicycle (designed as Dream Bikes iq150 Classique or other classic cruisers) with geometry ready for fixed-gear. I think to build a frame smaller than race frame, but bigger than cruiser frame, for 28" wheels. Please help me in choosing correct geometry of the frame.

    the project sounds like: tight wheel clearances, curved top tube and down tube, and super relaxed head tube and seat tube angles. sounds sorta like a Country Road Bob:

    Do you currently build frames? Are you a company having someone else manufacture them for you?

    Retrotec has cool designs...

    This is absolutely awesome.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    I still want to know what "fixed geometry" is.

    Does you just mean horizontal dropouts?

    Except there's no such thing as "fixed geometry." There are all kinds of fixed gear bikes in all kinds of geometries. My nephew's tricycle bears no resemblance to my track bike. "Fixed" is a type of drivetrain, full stop. There's no such thing as a "freewheel geometry," is there?

    If the OP means track geometry, then OK. I'm honestly not sure what he/she is after.
