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)

In all honesty dude, you need to do a little research by reading some of the threads on this forum and over at sheldonbrown.com. Secondly, if you still have any questions or confusion regarding what size bike to get, we'll need some info on your height, inseam and such to even begin trying to help you.

More importantly, What are your "ordering" for your first FG?

Im sure the members on here will be a better help in aiding you with finding a quality bike, not sizing you.

If your buying online, the size that "should" fit you may not once the bike gets there. On of the downsides of ordering online.
