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)

no it's at university of illinois at chicago.

oh and i think the scattante americano (performancebike's brand?) is virtually the same bike as well.
i did not know all this when i got my fuji, which is probably the most expensive of the 3, but i still think it's worth every dollar i spent.

I'd say go for a 56, and don't worry about toe overlap. It only matters when you're going insanely slow and making a tight turn.

any advice?
I'm 5'9" with a 32" inseam. I've been riding a 56 for the last 30 years. Seems like 54-55 might be a tad too small in the TT for you. I would take a test ride at your LBS on a bike with that size TT to see how it fits. Good luck.
