help me with bike size and suitability for single speed

Guys,

Currently watching this for either myself or iwife. I read post and believed it is a 54cm frame but the 50cm seat tube size worries me.

What height would this frame suit, also how about making it a single speed, ie) velocity Deep V's, fitting a front brake etc

Would it be suitable for a single speed road machine

It's a very decent track frame and will be a bit nervous for road use perhaps. It's built for fixed of course but you could run it as a single speed. 50 cm is pretty small though so it would suit short man or avearge height woman

Well not my size, I misread the size and thought it was a 54. It will suit my wife but may I bid is $150 so with 6 plus days to go I expect I will be outbid.

As they say buyer beware :oops: buteven if I win it I can pck it up and it can be another project.

The search for the single speed frame will continue. :)

Probably no good as a road frame anyway, as it's likely not to be drilled for brakes.
