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)

I'm 6'2" and Ride a 57 Kilo with minimal standover clearance and 5-7 inches or so of seatpost exposed. The length is perfect. I wouldn't be able to ride a 60 comfortably.

Keep in mind these bikes are measured a bit differently than most. I went by what was suggested on the Bikes Direct site and have been very pleased.

I'd go for the 57. A little extra seatpost or a longer stem looks way less dumb than a saddle slammed down onto the frame.

i'm 6'5, i was picking between the two myself(i had heard they run a little big and i've ridden a 58 or 59 in the past) i think if i were any shorter i'd feel like it were too big for me
