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)

650c track/messenger frame

Hey guys, I've been on bikeforums for a while now (in C&V) but this is my first foray into this subforum. I love my steel roadbike dearly, but at times want to ride something different and simpler to work on/with. As a smaller rider, I was wondering if you guys knew of any 650c track frames, something with a standover around 28 inches or so. Any info would be great, or links to other threads on this subject that I may have missed.


thank you!

Like TT I have the old model Wabi Lightning in 650c. It fits me fine except the drop from saddle to bars is substantial and I have to use a stem with substantial rise. I also bought a quality, but ugly/heavy adjustable stem I may have to use when I install shorter crank arms. I also find the front end to be very quick handling and I have to pay attention to what I'm doing-not a bad thing to do!
