What's a good entry level frame to start with for a single gear road/track bike? Only using it for fitness and possibly commuting.I was looking at the 6KU FIXIE, but $199 when I'm going to remove everything except the wheels and hub seems like a lot, but maybe it's a decent start anyway? Wondering if I can save money with just buying a frame.Also is 58cm okay for someone who is 6'3"
Seems like entry level chromo / alum frames are $200-250 so, maybe just starting with this and keeping the wheels/hub/crank is fine. I wish it came in 61cm though.
>>1346335do you have a co/op bike shop near you?If you do and you're friendly with the mechanics you'll save a LOT of money building a fixie locallyotherwise good luck, try bikes direct for the mercier kilo tt so you at least have a mildly competitive fixie
Raleigh Rush Hourand Raleigh Teaba are inexpensive choices ready to roll, son.Fuji Feather and Fuji Track are two other inexpensive choices.
>>1346335something chromoly not hitensounds like maybe you'd be better off doing a conversion from a nice old road bike with horizontal dropouts if you can find one
>>1346335Why would you be stripping it? At 199 that is a perfdctly acceptable bicycle and the only plus you are going to get swapping out parts on a limited budget is a few badges.
>>1346335if you're in the US, bikesdirect sells the mercier kilo tt pro, if you want to be a track cyclist get a dolan pre cursa.
>>1346335Why do you want a fixed gear? Do you live in some artificially flattened hellscape?
>>13472951. Fixed gears are fun even without flat2. Some places are naturally flat
