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 going to sell - then this happened...

I had planned to sell this - the 56cm frame is just too small for me.


Then this happened - 58cm All City Big Block frameset at a price I couldn't pass up.. more to come!

Have you considered raising the seat on the red bike for a better fit?

I slammed the seat and added the platfom pedals in preparation for pics and sale. I'm 6'2" and there was too big a drop and too short reach when I had the seat at my correct height. Tried different stems etc... but was never comfortable. Before pic:
