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 was like this too, first sight gave me shivers but then it grew into a morbid urge to acquire; of course I jumped for the whisper.

Bikes Direct is basically it. I honestly didn't know if you were being serious. Hahaha

Your local CL should have them though, they're pretty popular.

I'd say, smaller than 70cm, but larger than 42cm.

Somewhere in there.

Im not looking to perfectly fit the bike. I want the frame to be exactly like the one above I posted. I dont want the head tube to be too short/long and I want the fork offset to be just like in that picture above so basically i want the exact thing as in the picture above. Get it?
