I own the 50 and it's not as bad as I thought it would be.
I have a 7.5 shoe size though.
I only have a problem with it when I'm going really slow.
I've only clipped my tire twice so far and that was on the first day.

If you have a larger shoe it may be more of an issue.

I'm getting a 17T cog, do I need to add a chain link to the stock chain or do I have enough room?

16T isn't killing me for the short rides but up the hills and into the wind isn't that easy anymore. I'll probably end up getting a 17T cog and 44T chainring.

Are they over or under the paint.

I don't know the exact measurement but I just left two of the thick spacers under the stem and had my lbs cut it. Sorry I'm sure someone here knows that measurement.

i wear a size 10, and have a 50. it really isnt a big factor for me it took me about 2 or 3 days to get used to the toe overlap of the bike. on turns with my front foot about to hit the tire i put my heel down for my toe not to hit to tire. i think once or twice going slow i almost ate it from my toe smacking against the tire. but for the most part the overlap isnt that bad after you get used to it. i think the toe overlap is worse in wheelies. when i was in a wheelie and turning the handlebars it smacked my foot and i ate concrete. but i think with some practice that can be getting used to also. but hence the word track bike. this is a track bike and supposed to be used on a velodrome and on that there is not much turning required. i love my 50 kilo tt with deep v's.

It's above the rear eyelet.

Dang, I really don't want to hassle sending it back. My front left fork end is also chipped. I emailed BD to let them know. I have a 53 grape soda.

I got my grapesoda kilo 50cm in the mail last week and so far changed out the pedals to orbit 8 platforms w/soma toe clips, ritchey severe condition riser bars w/oury grips, 17t cog and duraace lockring. This is my first fixie and ive been having hella fun riding it. Im bringing the frame to a shop to get powder coated next week. The purple is awesome but i want to go a different route. If anyone really wants a purple 50cm kilo frame before it goes to get bead blasted and have the same frame in new condition maybe we can work something out. I dont want to destroy the purple paint without giving someone a chance to have one.
