I want a fixed gear so bad right now. I got this mail runner job and its a bitch having to skate mad places with a big ass messenger bag. im tryna spend like 250-300 on an entry level one nothing special right now. Also im 6'4" so would a 60 inch be good with me?


If you want a 60 inch bike you are gonna be wanting one of these:



You are going to want a 60cm frame, windsor the hour sounds like it makes the most sense for you:

i swear to god chainring bolts are the worst invention ever, there is physically no way to get one of mine off to switch chainrings, the bolt on the outside is tighten thru the shitty locknut and i cant do anything to loosen it, it just keeps rotating.

No, its the same price either way. Its either 229 for the cranks plus 80 bucks for the chain ring and another 100 for the sugino 75 bb.

Any 144 bcd chain ring will work. You don't need the sugino 75 chain ring for it if you want to try to save some money.

buy them used. you can get deep v + formula wheelsets for less than 200 bucks all day long. if not, hit up bicylce wheel wharehouse.

^^ That ebay wheels are cheap but they're 650c, unless that's what you want.

I got some mavics cxp 22s which i got for around 190$ and i like them a lot. Sometimes i want the deep Vs but too late to change now.

I have some rear brakes that i would like to use for my front instead, however the screw isnt long enough to connect it. Is there anyway i can do something for it to work out or do i have to buy a new front brake?

What will you notice if you got some bmx pedals and powergrips as opposed to sylvans and generic cages/dubstraps?

bmx pedals, like odysseys, dont have little clips to flick or get clipped in, they are beefier, and obviously cheaper. they also have broader platforms.

both seem fine, though i don't know much about bmx platforms + belts, but id imagine riding belts is a different experience, probably tighter/less stretch, and more control.
