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 did it a few months ago while I was still looking for a new bike and it seemed pretty right on. My problem is having a long reach. I was really hunched over and uncomfortable on my last bike and the Wrench Science guide gave me a good idea of what top tube and stem length to look for. I got a Bianchi Volpe, so not a track bike. I don't know what adjustments you'd need to make to the numbers for a track frame.
