    New question here. Singlespeed Geometry Question

    First off, I did do several searches without finding what I wanted, so I apologize if I'm asking something that has already been hashed out here.

    I ride an XXL Lenz Leviathan and am pretty happy with the geometry. I'm also thinking of getting a SS. Should I be looking at getting a similarly geometried (not a work, I know) SS, or does single-speeding warrant different geometry?

    For instance, knowing nothing about single-speeding, I could make the plausible argument that out-of-the-saddle climbing requires a shorter ETT in order to keep adequate weight on the rear tire. Correct? False?

    What do you think?

    thanks,

    for my custom ss we measured the specs off my julianna & i think we only tweaked the chain stay length for stability. too much technical talk for me, but whatever they did, my bike fits me perfectly. good luck!
    can i get some pixie dust w/my gu, please?
