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)

Dawes sst real sizing

Can anyone tell me how the Dawes SST is measured for the seat tube? Is it c-c or c-t? Im looking at the 58 or the 61. If its c-c im thinking the 58 but that top tube seems a little short. If its c-t then I thim I'm a 61 and the top tube will be good enough.

Does anyone have those sz and can tell me how they measure up? c-c? c-t?

C-T, I believe.

My 49CM seems and looks smaller than my 46 Fuji

center2top subtract 3cm to the frame size to get the center2center. So 61 is 58. better yet just look at the standover height. when you check a bike right under the picture is a link tittled "geometry chart". Check that

the geometry quote is too vague. My concern is buying too small a frame.

Thanks

I ordered a 56 based on my standover height. The bike suits me well, although I could see getting the next size up. Crazy how just a few cm makes such a big difference.
