My main issue is inhaling the cold air, so I try to inhale through my nose. I've been meaning to get a balaclava. Any luck with those?

I'm sure you can make a few adjustments and be just fine. You could possibly even get shorter crank arms. Add a few spacers to raise the stem might help as well. This is exactly why I prefer to buy...

Regarding the 4130 CrMo Double Butted vs the straight gauge steel, not sure if it matters but I'm a light dude, around 140lb. Which one would better suit a lighter rider?

Thanks for the input! I'm gonna ride the Charge today and see if it's too rigid/heavy for my liking, then I'll be able to decide.

Unfortunately my max is about $750 so it's either the Charge Plug with the straight-gauge steel, or the Jamis Quest with the 4130 CrMo. Which would you pick?

Charge Plug 1 and Charge Plug 2 are pretty decent fixed gear bikes. But are you sure you want a fixie? Have you ridden one before? Do you have lots of hills where you live? I'd definitely test ride...

Yes, I just meant more aggressive than my hybrid. Drop bars, less slant on top tube, etc. I'm about 5'8" and trying to stick to a 54 cm frame max as I prefer the seat raised a bit. I'm pretty good...
