I think there's a magic ratio for this BEAUTIFUL frame. Can't remeber exactly but it's something like 34:16.

I apologize for using this pic again, but I love the way it shows the simply, cleaness of single speed :D

Nice - the U-brake is hard to notice and makes the frame look cleaner.

How did i miss this thread when i was building my Single Speed, anyway sadly its sold now, but i am looking at making another one as i had so much fun with my TREK, anyway here it is, brings back memories, It was such a smooth runner, uber quick and light, photos show it in its Urban config. :)
