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)

Normal is such a vague term.

From my time hanging out at areacycles (more tarck oriented); I've realized that with any wierd named (WTF kind a name is foo manchu for a fork anyway?) tarck fork installed on any kilo tt size will have some serious foot overlap even with 165mm cranks) even through it'll let you barspin a 700C... I was there to witness some n00b wreck his new front H+ Son rim less then 15min after picking up his newly tarck fitted kilo at the skate park behind in a barspin that went bad when his crank got in the way mid-way.
