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)

62cm IRO Angus owners! Please help!

Hi.

It would be a tremendous help to me if you could take a measurement of your bike to guide me in my toe overlap investigation of the IRO angus in 62cm. Specifically, I'd love to know the distance from your front axle center to your BB center. Please shoot the number to me directly at easysmile@comcast.net.

Thank you!!!!

-Jason

Not sure what the clearance is, but if you're riding a 62, the issue will be minimal if not non-existent. I ride a 59 and the only time I run into the issue is when I'm turning at a ridiculously low speed. And again, it's minimal.

Same recommendation: I ride a 59, with GR-9 Pedals and XL clips, and I have not had any overlap. And I have tried to overlap and I cannot no matter what the speed or how sharp the turn.

Thank you!

Thanks for responding to my post. I appreciate it! Not even IRO will give me the dimension I'm after, so I had to turn to BF.

Happy spinning!
