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 love it. The white accents are spot-on.

Yeah, I already had most of the components when I got the frame though... it's 59. I learned after I got it that they "run small" or something. When I ordered it I had been pushing around my friend's 59 Pista for about six months and it was perfect so I thought the 59 IRO would be close. I was wrong. No big deal though it serves its purpose, just waiting for the '08 concepts to come in.

alright thanks. Thats what i figured in the Mark V, but in the Angus, i'd probably be a 56cm since the geo is different.

Mark V and Angus have the same exact same geometry...
Different tubing and threaded vs threadless headset.

How come the standover on a 56cm Mark V is 30'' and the standover on a 56cm Angus is 31''??? not the exact same if you check the site, they measurements on a 56cm are different between the two.
