hello from Va

Hi there im looking to get into biking as a way of transport as well excersize. I am looking for a fixed gear road bike and looking at 200 or so. I am 6'2" or so with a 35" leg length. I beleive its a 61cm right? I read about the takara kabuto but they only come 57cm tops

Hi, gmm and welcome to Bike Forums. this place is great.
Yeah, 61 sounds right, but you might even be able to use a 58 if you adjust the seatpost right.
I hope you find the perfect bike and then post in the Single Speed/Fixed subforum.
