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)

You should choose the size based on the top tube length. The 51cm Super Pista has a 525mm TT and the 53cm has a 535mm TT. So, compare that to your Undefeated to make your decision.

To convert a 9sp Shimano freehub to SS, should I hope to find enough used cassette spacers, buy spacers at the shop, or saw PVC pipe?
