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)

Good frame?

ive been riding a fixed gear for about 1 year, i like going fast but i have toe overlap so it depletes my ability to do some tricks. im looking for a good frame for a 650c front wheel or can barspin with a 700c good for tricks ,but it can still go fast aswell, and my toe clips WILL NEVER hit my wheel. thanks alot
