    hey there big boy that thing is huge. Do you know yet on what you want in a fixie. W/ your penchant for breaking things I would reccomend something like a cross check. My only disapointment with mine is the non removable brake studs on the rear. But then again you probably know what you want.

    I was actually thinking about a Cross Check since they come as a complete bike. I'd just need to have a proper hub/wheel built up. Donkey and his dremel tool can do wonders to brake studs! But, I'd likely just leave them there.

    Cool, I was just wondering why they do not do like the KM and the 1x1 and put the threaded ones in. Take em out to go fixie, put em in to go crossie. Seems like a good idea to me.

    Almost had me going.

    I was fired up there for a sec. until I saw it was a 62. I ride a 66cm Cannondale and it could be a wee bit bigger. I guess a custom build will have to be my next choice since Cannondale quit doing the 66. I will ask my brother if he is interested.It's about his size.
    Nice ride. Later, Doug

    Oh yes....long gone.
    Good luck.

    FYI I bought a 62cm Trek 1000 for $499 last January. Put about 2,500 miles on it since. I think I've got my money's worth so far.
