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)

frame head tube length + headset stack height

Or measure your the steerer on your current fork.

Top of the headset to the bottom of the headset might be a tiny bit closer.
