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)

BD Clockwork geometry questions

Looking at the Clockwork and can't find any reference to wheel base size or length of head set on the 58 or 61cm size. Anyone ride either of these sizes? Is it a copy of another BD frame? Opinions on quality of frame, welds, and wheel set? I'm liking the cro-moly frame/fork as it should give be a smoother ride than aluminum (have a steel Bianchi I love). Other comments and observations on the Clockworks most welcome. Btw, does everyone take off the BB to re-grease or check to make sure it has been properly lubed?

I own a Clockwork, it's my first SS bike. I'm loving it so far! But I probably might change my rims once I have the money. The only lube I put was on my chain, 'cause it looked like there was no lube at all. I don't know if you know, but it comes as a freewheel, not fixed. I recently went fixed and loving it.

I think Windsor Clockwork = Windsor Hour = Dawes SST = Fuji Track = SE Lager
