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)

That's a stayer(*) bike, the fork is supposed to be like that. That's also why it has such a huge chainring


*) This site explains what it is, and why the bikes are like that.

I wish I hadn't read that. Now want one. In the mean while, I'm just going to have to flip the fork on my new bike and gerry-rig the stem - to make it go fast.

There's a plethora of ways to find out. I admit, yours is not my first choice... or any of them for that matter.

Is that head tube steep or does the seat tube just mess with my head?

Isn't that one of those cheap eBay frames from VISP? Or am I thinking of something else?

If you are going to bend the seattube at least follow the curve of the rear wheel. That looks wonky.
