    First Fixie Sizing Help

    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.

    Feel free to hit up the commuter forum. Try and find how you like to ride around town- if you like aero, then go for a smaller size. If you like something with saddle and handlebars closer to even, larger frame. I'm six foot and I like ~58ish. I think.

    If you are going for cheaper, try out the Scrambler. Build it up so it doesn't look so douchey, but maybe that is your thing.
