    Fixie Sizing Help

    I posted this over in the singlespeed forum but I was told I would get a much better response over here...

    I am planning on either getting an Origin-8 Uno or a Felt Brougham as a commuter bike. If I went with the Uno I would definitely get a 59cm but the Brougham only comes in a 58 or a 61. I have no way of sitting on this bike before I order it. My question is, will I be uncomfortable on a 58? I'm also afraid the 61 will be too big. What do you guys think? Should I go for a smaller or larger size for fixed gear commuting?

    BTW I am 6'2" and I ride an XL Giant Reign ATM.

    Thanks.

    Try and find a bike at LBS with similar geometries and test ride.

    Almost impossible to answer given the information. I'll agree with homebrew.
