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 Suggestions to Replace SE Draft

I made the mistake of purchasing an SE draft about half a year ago. I began to upgrade gradually, swapping components when needed, and at the moment the only thing stock on the bike is the frame, bottom bracket, forks and headset. I'm looking for suggestions on the best option for a frame set to replace it with. The weight is finally starting to get to me, and i feel the 52cm size is a bit too small (im between 5'8 and 5'9). Thank

I should probably also mention that I have since converted it to a FG, although I'm not sure this would make any difference in a frame selection

Kilo stripper or Pake frameset if your looking for affordable. Great bikes for the money.
