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)

Not implying that its the bike and not u but... A 50cm seems a tad small unless u have mega short legs.

Too small for you most likely. Look at the geometry chart.

A 50cm Kilo (measured center-to-center) is the same as a 53cm (measured center-to-top).

No, Kilo just measure everything differently...

You're not going to accomplish anything if a little discouragement will make you stop riding your bike and sell it...not trying to be a jerk, just an observation.
