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)

Overlap on '69 rickshaw

I'm thinking of picking up a 1869 Rickshaw. Can anyone who has one tell me if there is any calf overlap? I know Asian Rickshaws and American biker calves don't always mix too well.

"I am buying a bianchitrekspecializedmercierwindsorleaderschwinn conversionfixedgeartrackbike does my cliplessclipsplasticmetalclips overlap the front wheel and furthermore, can i barspin?"
