I'm not talking about a huge difference, just a slight one.
Excuse me if I dont use the proper cycling terms... but I've decided I want a fixed gear bike. While looking at Framesets I've found a few that I like, however the one I'd rather get (because of price) has a slightly different geometry, and I dont know how much it will effect the bike as a whole.
Here's the main two I'm looking at:
The Eighth Inch Scrambler V3- http://www.eighthinch.com/scrambler_frame.html
and the Mission Valencia- https://www.missionbicycle.com/frame
Now, I THINK I would prefer the top tube to be flat or slightly sloped downward for a LITTLE bit more aggressive geometry, however the Scrambler frame seems to have an almost upward sloped top tube... it's so slight that it's hard to tell in many of the pictures. and the Valencia looks to be slightly sloped downwards... So, do you all think that it matters for the price difference?? Would I really even notice much of a change with the different geometry?
What do you all think?? and if you have suggestions for other fixie framesets around the same price range I'm all ears, but I've read a ton of old forums on the topic of cheap fixed gear framesets, so if you have a suggestion please include some reasoning to help me decide.
thanks alot!! I appreciate any help.
