My daughter, Clem, wants a fixie for her Uni commuting. I'm (or rather she is) looking for a complete bike or frame. Approx 51cm. She says - not too expensive. I'll let her decide what that means.

All sorted. Many thanks PaulH.

Probably better running it with a freewheel rather than fixed as its a PITA when riding in a busy place. I used to commute on single speed, less maintenance than gears. However you are more often than not in the wrong gear. Good for low and high cadence stuff

Also a front brake is required by law,
I see loads of students running fixed with no front brake and its lethal. Depend how much you value your front teeth I suppose.
Very Happy
